I love the environment, the top-notch researchers and the support structure for graduate programmes, especially for PhD. Proud Witsie!
The MBA program was a pivotal learning experience in my life, and I still draw on insights and tools that I learned.
My abiding memories of Wits Business School were late nights, early mornings, the tough task of managing syndicates as well as the balancing of family, friends, work and life in general. I came out the other side a bit wiser, a bit tougher and an enduring appreciation of the difference that make us so unique. …
I had asked Prof Patrick McGraw to borrow his teaching notes to copy, intending to return it the following week. Over the weekend my car was stolen, with his notes, my course materials, and text books. Thank you to Douglas Jung and friends who helped me with copies of their files so that I could prepare for the exams. The MBA program taught me that you can survive any hardship if you have a strong support network.
A school of excellence that stimulates change through courage, conversation and debate.
Great camaraderie in the whole MMFI class of 2014.
The most prominent memory is of studying and debating statistics in the courtyard with my ‘syndicate’ group.

Mark Addleson once commented during an Economics lecture, “Cats have no sense of occasion!” The MBA was indeed an occasion in my life!
The life skills learnt, in-particular from Dave Cawood, have stood me in good stead throughout my working life.

Whilst doing the MAP programme, I had this desire to do the MBA and with not having an undergrad degree – thought it was impossible. Of the 30 students accepted onto the full-time programme, there were three places offered to students without an undergrad degree – I was exceptionally fortunate to be granted one of …
The Wits PhD has inspired me and given me the opportunity to attain greater heights.

We were the first class to complete this course part-time. A real challenge and motivated me to become a life long learner.

I am still applying the learnings daily. I was part of the MAP 120 group. What a privilege to have been in this class of intelligent and committed Africans who are prepared to change Africa for the better. Prof Malikane, Dr Mosala, Mike and the marketing classes stood out as some of the best …
