NWU BUSINESS SCHOOL INITIATIVE

NWU BUSINESS SCHOOL INITIATIVES

Our initiatives were developed to stimulate critical thinking and reasoning, foster reflexivity, debate possible solutions to challenges, and identify research areas on the AU Agenda 2063 and UN Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in Africa.

“We need to be relevant to our continent, and we have an obligation to use our expertise to address issues such as water shortages, food security, lack of leadership, health and safety, unemployment, corruption, political instability, etc. By hearing first-hand, the voices of Africa—their concerns, their needs—we will be able to provide innovative ideas to change Africa for the better.” Prof. Anet Smit, Programme Leader: Community Engagement, Professor: Sustainable Development.

These points are addressed within the extension of our African “footprint”, as we believe that the answers to the multiple challenges facing Africa can only be found by seeking and uncovering African solutions by Africa’s people. The African continent is a global treasure and deserves to be listened to, and our current initiatives create that platform. The NWU Business School will continue to create such opportunities, as we have the responsibility to deliberate in pursuit of the possibility of a well-governed and thriving South Africa.

OUR THINK TANK WEBINARS

An opportunity to join a virtual, online table to discuss burning economic issues in South Africa.

We have created something that caters to academics, political and business leaders, researchers, and postgraduate students—an online platform and opportunity to join a virtual table to discuss the most important and burning economic issues in South Africa. We call them our THINK TANK webinars. Here, topical issues affecting business and society are debated and analysed by a panel of experts from industry and academia, whereafter attendees are allowed to engage with the panel members in a Q&A session.

The topics of these Think Tanks include corruption, recessions, the state of local government, and funding, to name but a few.
