The GEM College of International Business (Platinum) campus is the first GEM campus to be incorporated in South Africa.
Washington DC (I-Newswire) October 1, 2013 - Under the leadership of renowned social entrepreneur Anne Timms, GEM Platinum will bridge socio-economic development at community level with the training requirements of the massive platinum Mining industry in Rustenburg, South Africa.
Luceille Outhred (GEM's Corporate Leader) has described Anne as "an inspiration and a living heroine",. Ms Outhred said "The Board of Directors is honoured to see the GEM College of International Business (Platinum) campus established under Anne's leadership.

Rustenburg is the fastest growing city in South Africa, with a population of about 1,000,000 people. It is home to the two largest platinum mines in the world and the world's largest platinum refinery, PMR (Precious Metal Refiners), which processes around 70% of the world's platinum. Rustenburg is the hub of the mining industry, based on the Merensky Reef, which has massive chrome reserves and the world's second-largest platinum deposits. A result of the mining activity in the area, has been an increased focus on social economic development.
