Stellenbosch Business School Alumni of the Year
Recognising the success of our alumni
2020 Societal Impact
"Teach a [wo]man how to fish and you feed her, her children and community for a lifetime. The value of personal development and self-investment is priceless, life changing and can possibly impact the world: that was my MBA journey at Stellenbosch Business School.”
2020 Business Leadership
This MBA experience was far richer and more rewarding than I imagined because not only did I attain my goals but my personal life improved. This new world of engagement, knowledge, self-introspection and discipline propels relevance.
Capitec CEO Gerrie Fourie was named Alumnus of the Year 2019 by the University of Stellenbosch Business School.
The award is the highest honour given to alumni of Stellenbosch Business School on behalf of the Alumni Association and formally recognises alumni who have excelled as responsible leaders in the private or public sector, or in an entrepreneurial venture.
