To add value to the quality of its academic programmes, the Faculty of Business and Management Sciences has this year sent 10 deserving students to European universities as part of its International Exchange Programme.

The students recently joined the faculty’s partner universities in France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands where they will attend class for the next three months.

The students are in the departments of Office Management and Technology, Marketing, Retail Business Management, and Entrepreneurship.

The Office Management and Technology students departed in April while the other departments left this month.

The student are selected by their respective departments, and once accepted into the programme they receive sponsorship from the faculty for travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses.

The faculty’s Associate Dean, Ivan van der Heever, met with the students before their departure to wish them well on their journey.

Van der Heever encouraged the students to commit to their studies and to enjoy their new surroundings and make the most of the opportunity.

The faculty’s programme has been running for over ten years and receives 30 students every semester from 15 partner universities in Europe. As part of the exchange, the faculty has the opportunity to send students to the European universities every year.

For more information contact the programme’s Co-ordinator, Nizaam Peck, on 021 460 8392 or visit room E3.33B in the Engineering Building at the Cape Town Campus.
