Stadio to build new campus near Cape Town / FIN24
Stadio, the JSE-listed investment holding company that focuses on investments in higher education institutions, is set to develop a new and comprehensive campus outside Cape Town at Phesantekraal in Durbanville after finalising a transaction for a site of 7.8 hectares.The company – in a written statement – said it aims to start with this development by March 2019 and to have the campus up and running by February 2021.
Stadio CEO Dr Chris van der Merwe said that the ultimate vision of Stadio is to create a multiversity for 100 000 students.
“We believe that there is ample room for expansion as 100 000 students will only be 5% of the total higher education market in South Africa.”
This new campus will supplement newly constructed Stadio facilities at Musgrave in Durban, Montana in Pretoria and Waterfall in Midrand.
The new Phesantekraal campus coincides with the accreditation of Stadio’s first doctoral degree in Business Administration (DBA) with a further two doctoral degrees in the offing.
