Duke CE has been a part of the African continent for over nine years, having opened our Johannesburg office in 2008. We quickly came to realize that South Africa, and the broader continent, offered a wide range of opportunities – both to educate and to learn. Our presence in Africa is now 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. Our presence is headquartered in Johannesburg with about 20 staff members, and we have a strong network of partners across the continent, including in Namibia, Zimbabwe, Mauritius, Botswana, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania.
As both a global and local company, we are well-positioned to have continental reach, tapping into our ground-level expertise, while at the same time, leveraging our global scale and best practices of our business. We join local insights to cutting-edge global thinking to create truly customized programs designed to local contexts. With experience in over 13 African geographies, we deliver our education in-country, at a 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.
