The Faculty of Management at the University of Johannesburg (UJ) defines its footprint in terms of the development of sought-after organisational leaders creating legacies. “We partner with entrepreneurs and industry alike in continuously updating and improving our teaching and learning content and processes,” explains Professor Daneel van Lill, Executive Dean: Faculty of Management. “In preparing our 10 300 students to be future-fit, academic leaders cover the fields of business management and entrepreneurship, marketing and people management, knowledge management, applied information systems, tourism and hospitality management and development as well as transport and supply chain management. All of our full-time qualifications include business management modules focused on achieving sustained excellence in businesses.
According to Prof Van Lill, the UJ’s Faculty of Management focuses on growing great graduates equipped with a set of leadership and managerial skills required to cope and excel in a changing, highly competitive global business environment. “Our learning philosophy — ‘Learning to be’ — is interpreted as the ability to grow socially responsible business through innovation, well planned and executed service levels and an acute awareness of sustainability,” he says. “Bottom-line, we are positioning the faculty as an organisation where future-fit organisational leaders are forged through partnerships.”
“Studying at the Faculty of Management means that you have partnered with us to attain future-fit leadership. In essence, our graduates have been empowered and enabled to make a living and to understand that the meaning of life is also found in solving complex problems and being of value to others,” says Prof Van Lill. “The benefits of partnering with us are that we provide students with a reputable learning environment. In return we expect our students to study with determination and we also expect our students to participate in the opportunities the faculty provides to be immediately employed after graduation and to help to create jobs for future generations,” he concludes.
