True to its vision of becoming the heart of technology education in Africa, CPUT is strengthening ties with its African counterparts.

Recently two staff members from the Faculty of Business, Mandie Richards and Belinda Berman, visited The School of Management Sciences at Polytechnic of Namibia to discuss various areas of collaboration.

CPUT and Polytechnic of Namibia signed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2013.

“This has been a positive move, as it provided an opportunity for a cultural exchange with our African counterparts,” says Richards, a senior lecturer in the Office Management and Technology Department.

Richards says the collaboration between the two institutions emphasises that international exchanges also include exploring educational, social and economic opportunities in Africa.

“Each session provided so many opportunities for future collaboration and strengthening the ties with our Africa partners,” she says.

The faculty is looking forward to staff and student exchanges between the two institutions, especially within the Office Management and Technology Department. Other areas of collaboration include curriculum development as well as joint research initiatives.

Discussions also focused on student and staff development programmes as well as transformation.
