WBS Student Quiz Night


As part of our 50th birthday celebrations, we held a Quiz Night on Friday 31 August, 2018 at The Wanderers Club.  Students from MBA, PDBA and Master of Management (MM) classes organised themselves into teams of eight with quiz master par excellence  Larry Benjamin testing their general knowledge: from brands to geography, music and movies to sporting heroes.  It was an evening to remember – at times rowdy, at times tense, often hilarious – and the competition reached boiling point!  In the end, a part-time MBA team (aka ‘the Slumdog Billionaires’) won first prize.  Second place went to ‘the Urbanites’ (MM-ENVC) with another part-time MBA team coming third (‘Watson Exe’).  We had such fun we can’t wait for the next student Quiz Evening. Watch this space!

WBS Staff Street Party


On the 14th September WBS staff – including finance officers, cleaners, faculty members, admissions officers, programme managers, marketing personnel, IT support, maintenance staff – all came together for an afternoon of music, street food and comedy.  It was a glorious spring day and staff enjoyed a relaxing afternoon under the sun with entertainment by comedian Celeste Ntuli and delicious food and ice cream served from food trucks.  Our birthday cake was a mountain of beautifully decorated 50th birthday cupcakes for each staff member to take home.
