It is a cultural melting pot where each person contributes their unique blend of knowledge and thinking. Our staff and students come from over 100 countries in Africa and the rest of the world.

The SAIM was conceived primarily as an Examining Body responsible for defining the format, content and standards of SAIM manager-development programmes—the conduct of National Examinations—the award of Certificates and Diplomas to students who have successfully passed the SAIM examinations.
Tuition was to be delivered through approved educational providers in both the public and private sector. It was strongly felt by Mr. Morcombe that students should be able to prepare for the SAIM examinations in accordance with their preferred mode of learning and circumstances, i.e. self study, correspondence or face-to-face tuition. Furthermore, Mr. Morcombe whose great role model was the great ‘self-taught’ US business steel magnate and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie, started work at 16. He acquired all his business management knowledge through part-time night school study and life-long ‘practical’ work experience. He was adamant that no student who desired to better him or herself should be prevented from enrolling on SAIM programmes solely through lack of formal educational qualifications.
In the 1980’s the SAIM formed Membership Services that represented a broad diversity of business managers providing opportunity for networking and business development in all spheres of business. Members are encouraged to meet, listen and discuss matters of topical interest and spend time with their fellow members to share ideas, experiences, problems and insights.
This, inevitably led to the formation of the Foundation in 1987 as the outreach foundation to uplift governance of rural schools. It expanded in 1993 to also include projects of life-skills and business skills in support of Adult Basic Education and Training (ABET). In 2002 projects to address the needs of the unemployed and HIV/AIDS awareness were conceived.
