Duke CE has been a part of the African continent for more than 15 years, having opened our Johannesburg office in 2008. Our presence in Africa is two-fold. We work locally with South African clients, spanning industries including financial, government, automotive, and extraction, and we also deliver customised education across the continent to African and global clients.

From our Johannesburg office of about 30 staff members, we offer qualifications in South Africa as well as open enrollment programs throughout Africa.

As both a global and local company, we are well-positioned to have continental reach. We join local insights to cutting-edge global thinking to create truly customised programmes designed to local contexts. With experience in some 30 African countries, we deliver our education in-country, at an immersive level, rather than bringing participants into a brick-and-mortar classroom.

Africa is certainly an economic growth story with its resources, burgeoning business and growth rates, but we believe its biggest story is yet to be written by unlocking the talents of its people. Duke CE is well-placed and excited to join in that journey.
