Red & Yellow

“We are teaching the great creators, inventors, leaders and entrepreneurs of the 21st Century.”


Artificial Intelligence and robots are going to replace most of the jobs we know today. Red & Yellow is the business school where talented people go to develop the career skills they need to thrive in this digital world.

We believe creative thinking is the most important skill of the future and it must be supported by uniquely human abilities such as leadership, adaptability and social intelligence.

We are a Creative School of Business that provides you with the commercial logic to grow successful organisations and more importantly the creative magic to set them apart.

We are teaching the great creators, inventors, leaders and entrepreneurs for the 21st Century.

We will be the most creative business school in the world.

our approach

Our mandate, as educators, is to prepare students for career success in the future, not the past. This single-minded purpose is why we exist, and what continues to drive and inspire us 20+ years later.

Right now, we’re focused on equipping humans for the 21st Century realities, and the exciting opportunities that’ll arise from the digital explosion and ever-increasing pervasiveness of technology.

How we do this and what we believe in/ethos:

Teaching VS learning:

Education is most valuable when it combines knowledge with practical skills and essential human traits – like creative thinking, negotiation, and empathy – that are becoming increasingly important differentiators and key contributors to career success vs survival

Real-life ready:

We update our content constantly to ensure learnings are aligned not only to current industry needs and reality, but also shifts, trends and changes in the world at large

Industry relevance:

We are in constant partnership with industry leaders as to gaps, needs and opportunities for the workforce of the future

Meaningful learning/highly employable:

Every student, regardless of who they are and what they are studying, must have an enjoyable experience and come out with the essential combo of knowledge and know-how

Intention to make a real difference/add value:

To produce highly-employable graduates who have the competitive edge over their peers, the ability to fast-track their careers, and hopefully become the great creators, leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs of the future

Private institution:

Which means we’re not only more agile and responsive, but also less affected by political upheavals (like protests and mass action)

Designed for 21st Century:

focused on preparing humans for amazing careers in the spaces robots can’t invade

Lifelong learning is a non-negotiable: we cater for everyone, with a range of learning experiences


Degrees, diplomas and certificates that graduates are highly-employable and have an edge over their peers

Working professionals:

Upskilling with online short courses and workshops


Focused programmes tailored to address both developing the most productive workforce and satisfying B-BBEE requirements.
