Dream a Little Dream of…

September 25th sees the world celebrating World Dream Day – a global initiative to support people in achieving their dreams. We believe that every person holds immeasurable potential, and that while we all work towards our individual goals, we are contributing to the betterment of our country – and world.

Here at MasterStart, we’ve been proudly making dreams come true since 2015.

A small team of passionate individuals started MasterStart with the dream of offering top-quality, executive online education to students across the globe. Five years later, we’ve created more and more jobs by growing our team to over 100 staff members.

Over time, we’ve built world-class courses in partnership with the University of Stellenbosch Business School, the University of Pretoria’s Gordon Institute of Business Science, and the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business.

At MasterStart, we make sure that nobody’s dreams get left behind as we assist you throughout your courses – that’s why our completion rate is over 80%. We have monthly course start dates to accommodate different schedules, and have dedicated course coordinators to support our students every step of the way.

Our student reach expands much further than our homebase in South Africa. After all, world-class courses attract worldwide learners. We’ve hosted students from over 43 countries. These hail from across Africa, the United States, Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia and Asia.

Here’s what our students have to say about working with MasterStart on the journey to achieving their dreams:

“I now can say I have the basics to Supply Chain Management. I will surely recommend this course to people like me.”
– Xoliswa Beverly Kula

“The course content is in digestible chunks. It’s not too heavy, and at the same time, it teaches one to use time wisely.”
– Marufu Antony Chigaazira

“Very useful, especially with people whose main work is around projects. It is also useful as an empowerment to individuals for planning, implementing and monitoring personal projects”.
– James Mathokgwane

“Going through the course up to this point has really helped me to apply this knowledge in a more useful way. I, and most of my peers, have been applying some of the concepts learnt thus far on an ad hoc basis.”
– Brain Kasonka Mwansa

At MasterStart, we believe in the potential of individuals, and in fostering the growth of Africa’s next business leaders. With the right tools at hand, your dream job is all the more achievable.

This year, roughly 4,000 lives will have been changed by MasterStart. With the resources at hand, the flexibility to learn as you please, and the latest industry knowledge to sharpen your competitive edge, you can turn your dream job into your real job.
