Faculty of Economics and Finance

Welcome to the Faculty of Economics and Finance. This Faculty combines and integrates two main disciplines, namely a focus on engagement with and service to the business community and a focus on economic sciences.  It provides a quality and challenging education aimed at meeting the public and private sector employment needs throughout the continent and the SADC regions. That is why our Faculty has a strong focus on entrepreneurship so that our graduates can also create jobs. Our experienced academic staff members are in close contact with students and build a strong relationship with both the public and private sectors.

The overall objective of the Faculty of Economics and Finance is to provide job-ready graduates. In today’s world, more than ever before, this simple statement has enormous implications in terms of the knowledge base of the skills we have to transfer to students. In the context of the knowledge economy, and given the transformational requirements of South Africa and the continent as a whole, it is imperative for us to be at the forefront of knowledge of the various disciplines our programmes are drawn from. We are confident that we are active in this endeavour and that our efforts are evident in the quality of our graduates and the opportunities that arise for them when they enter the job market.

Moreover, we strive to instil in our students the love of learning that we hope to become an integral part of their future development. Only in this way, we believe, will we fulfil our mission of education.
