Header Alumni Red and Yellow
Our outstanding alumni are proof of our commitment to creating logical business thinkers who understand human behaviour and use the magic of creative thinking to grow successful organisations.

“It's safe to say Red & Yellow changed my life. After completing a very academically-focused University qualification in an environment that didn't inspire creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovation; I then found this at Red & Yellow. The exposure to this, and the inner workings of industry, is still a major influence in what I do everyday. The quality of educators and content prepared gave me a head start for, and thorough understanding of, business.“ - Veli Ngubane, Founding Partner & Creative Director

Our Alumni continue to inspire (as guest lecturers), inform (course content that is relevant), and support (with industry-related wisdom and access to networks).

The bigger Red & Yellow community comprises lecturers, students, support teams, corporate executives, online students … and everyone who has been a part of our journey. We’re big on ‘family’, and what we believe it stands for - sticking together and supporting each other with brutal honesty and nurturing support, throughout life’s happy moments and painful lows. Because we’re all connected to something bigger.


All individuals that have studied with Red & Yellow - both online and fulltime - are automatically enrolled in our Alumni Network Benefits Programme. It’s jam-packed with exclusive learning and lifestyle benefits. Check it out.
