The key to your career success? Earning while you learn at Red & Yellow

 ·24 Feb 2023

Furthering your education for tomorrow’s working world is more crucial than ever before.

A 2019 OECD education report states that the employment rate among 25-64 year olds in South Africa who hold a tertiary qualification was 85%, a strong indication that tertiary education pays off.

With SA’s unemployment rate and competition for jobs at an all-time high, finding the right tertiary institution is more than an important decision – it’s crucial.

But where should you study, and how will you find the time to study while working so that you don’t have to step away from your career?

The answer is studying online at the Red & Yellow Creative School of Business.

Red & Yellow was started 28 years ago by the founders of Ogilvy in South Africa, with the primary intention of preparing students for the world of work knowing exactly what the market needs.

Today the school is a CHE-accredited private higher education institution and is dedicated to providing its students with the best possible education in the fields of design, marketing and creative leadership. And those students go on to lead incredible careers all over the world.
