USB-ED and TransnetHeilet Bertrand and Hennie Oosthuizen from USB-ED with the Diamond Arrow award received on 3 March 2014. .

USB Executive Development (USB-ED), the public executive development and training company of the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB), was again awarded the Diamond Arrow Award in a national survey of academic institutions offering executive education in South Africa.

The award was handed over to USB-ED at a ceremony in Johannesburg today. 

USB-ED’s mean score in the survey for the reward increased from last year’s 8.24 to 8.35 out of a possible 10.00 points. This was again the highest in the annual national survey of academic institutions offering executive education, as judged by participants of executive development programmes. The survey was conducted from October to December 2013.

Respondents rated executive education providers across a range of 11 attributes, including: application of knowledge in the workplace, cost, development of the individual, reputation (i.e. perception of the institution’s brand, integrity, CSI), leadership skills/abilities, relevance of course and strategic and tactical benefits for a company.

USB-ED CEO, Frik Landman, commented: “Our vision for Africa and our role in it, keeps us motivated and constantly reaching higher. The PMR award is therefore a further affirmation and motivates us to continue on our journey."
Well done to USB-ED and your team!  Worcester Business Forum is proud to be associated with your institution of learning and look forward to many fruitful engagements.
