Prof Harry Ballard from CPUT’s Public Management Department urged graduates in the Faculty of Business and Management Sciences to make the university proud by attracting only good media publicity after they enter the world of work.

“We look forward to reading in newspapers about only the good things you do,” said Ballard.

He said that everyday newspapers are filled with stories of corruption, non-compliance with good governance principles and unethical behaviour.

He added that the country needs ethical leaders who treat followers like they themselves would want to be treated.

He said the graduates should adhere to values of honesty, probity, accountability as they are the university’s greatest pride.

“In the workplace you’ll be judged by how you interact with your colleagues, subordinates and customers,” he said.

He pleaded with them to never stop learning. 

This morning, hundreds of graduates were awarded diplomas and degrees in Hospitality Management, Public Management, Sport Management and Taxation.
