I have definitely benefitted from my experience with Cranefield. When I completed the Post Graduate Diploma in Project Management, I was a Project Manager at a bank. The course matter delivered by Prof Steyn and his colleagues equipped me with the knowledge and confidence to move across industries and I am now privileged to be the Operations Director of an organization which is leader in transport infrastructure.
Cranefield College has been an enjoyable eye-opening experience and has proven to be one of the best career decisions I’ve ever made.
The MCom programme at Cranefield has fundamentally changed my outlook and made my service delivery and strategic focus more nuanced. The modules are the best strategic and business learning I have undertaken, vastly overtaking my previous studies both within and outside South Africa. I highly recommend Cranefield for every senior government official.
I really enjoyed my journey with Cranefield so far- the knowledgeable and expert lecturers, their input and guidance, the interesting classes and discussions, and let’s not forget the efficient, helpful and pleasant admin staff. A special thanks to Cranefield in guiding me to complete my Master’s degree.

We would like to take this opportunity, to express our deep sincere appreciation on behalf of the management and residents of Emannuel old age home for your very generous donation of goods in kind towards meeting the objectives of our organisation. It is people like you that make this world a place worth living.
Thank you once again and this comes with our heartfelt thanks.
I have made it to Strategic Projects Manager positions at SAA’s Corporate Strategy department. My gratitude goes out to Cranefield College for the deep knowledge impacted on me and making me realize the bigger picture in business and the field of Project Management.
Just a thank you to Prof Schmikl for the lecture yesterday. Yes we paid for it but his wealth of knowledge and experience and the lessons he shared has left us all with deep impressions and much to reflect on. In the day-to-day rush of the corporate world we often forget we work with people with souls and spirits that can dent like vapour and I am today looking with new eyes at myself and my interactions.
Thanks for a life lesson that I will not forget.
