The Faculty of Business and Management Sciences recently hosted a delegation from Anhalt University of Applied Sciences in Germany and agreed to exchange students and staff.

The delegation comprised of Prof Daniel Michelis, Bachelor's Degree Programme Manager of International Business Studies, and Anand Jayakrishnan, MBA International Trade Co-ordinator at Anhalt’s Economics Faculty.

The delegates had meetings with the HoD: Marketing, Mandy Jones, and HoD: Management and Project Management, Angela Buys to discuss future collaboration between Anhalt University and the departments.

They also met with the students and staff who will be visiting Anhalt University of Applied Sciences on exchange programs in September.

Students got the opportunity to ask questions regarding what to expect while in Germany, how to prepare for the snow and about German life in general.

The students will be in Germany for three months and the staff member for two weeks.

The faculty’s Associate Dean Ivan van der Heever, who oversees the faculty’s International Exchange Programme says CPUT and Anhalt University have a longstanding relationship.

“Anhalt University was one of the first universities with which the faculty formed partnerships many years ago,” he says.

During their two-day visit, the delegates were hosted by the faculty’s International Exchanges Co-ordinator, Nizaam Peck, whogave his guests a taste of cape town via a campus tour and a visit to the popular Eastern Bazaar for lunch.

In this semester the faculty has received 28 students who come from universities in Austria, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.
