Most studies lead to an improvement in skill and a broadening of perspective. By increasing your knowledge and exposure, you are likely to be able to operate more effectively in your present position, or to prepare yourself for a future position in your current or in another company. Education has a very high return on investment. If you had to choose to put money in the bank or to improve your skills, it is almost always more beneficial to invest in your own ability to make better money.

Here is what our students say about our courses:
My favorite part about studying with SGI, is self-discipline. You don't have a lecturer to tell you when an assignment is due. In an online course, you can email a coach your questions directly. When answering, the coach provides you with a thorough understanding of what is expected of you. If you are trying to save money, this is a perfect solution. With SGI, you do all the work at your own pace. - Mandisa Siyo
My favorite part of studying with SGI was the fact that the lessons learned were 90% closer to reality, via various exercises that were given to me, I was thus able to have a global idea of what it is ''being of service to others''. - Myriam Mpoyi
My favorite part of studying with SGI is the video lectures as well as the experience of the lecturers was excellent!! Furthermore, the overall support of the whole team especially the online coach which was appointed to each student. - Hadley Isaacs
My favorite part was the SGI team, whenever I had a problem they were always available and ready to assist.- Gwyneth Anna Zuze
The assignments are interesting and cover real-life issues. - Lame Ramaloto
