The School of Business Governance on the Mafikeng Campus of the North-West University (NWU) has relocated to a new office complex at Leopard Park, Mahikeng. The official opening of the new offices was held on 24 November with a ceremony attended by the vice-chancellor of the NWU, Prof Dan Kgwadi.
The relocation was the end result of a re-accreditation phase in 2013/2014. This has led to the unification of the Potchefstroom Business School and the Graduate School of Business on the Mafikeng Campus to form the NWU School of Business and Governance. A single MBA programme at NQF level 9, Post Graduate Diploma (PGDip) and Executive Management Programmes are now offered on all three campuses of the university.
The new office complex is situated in the scenic surroundings of Leopard Park Golf Estate and can accommodate more than 85 students in two classrooms with state of the art teaching equipment. All the academic and administrative staff are also housed in the new office block.
“This is a dream come true for the staff of the School of Business and Governance and we are looking forward to offer a professional programme and service to our communities,” said Prof Jan Meyer, manager of the School of Business and Governance.
