The School of Economic and Management Sciences (SoEMS) has completely bought into the Sol Plaatje University vision. I joined the establishment in June 2017 as the Head of School and immediately got rooted in the university’s vision and, together with my colleagues, embarked on a mission to develop SoEMS as a School of choice for high-achieving students, as well as subscribing to the university’s mission to be committed to exemplary teaching, learning, scholarly yet creative research and effective engagement with governmental entities.
SoEMS is committed to implementing strategies to make the broader SPU goals become part of our daily routine. We value the university’s commitment to student success by preparing them to be the global leaders and change agents of tomorrow. While we celebrate our achievements, we are aggressively working to address areas of concern and opportunity. We continue to encourage our students to create innovative solutions to academic and social problems. We are enthused by a vision of a quality system of higher education that is congruent with national aims and personal desires and aptitudes of our students.
In the current depressed higher education funding environment, we are committed as a School to developing well-designed policies and operational plans to ensure that resources are used well. To this end, we value measures that encompass attributes such as participation rates, research performance as well as employability of graduates. We are also pushing to strengthen relationships with government departments, civil society, business and the rest of the community.
We will soon be exploring international links for the transmission of knowledge and staff capacity development as well. Going forward, we want to maintain the momentum of the past four years of systemic and systematic improvement of the quality of economic and management Science education offered at SoEMS.
