Invest in Yourself – Think FINANCE!
Annual prize giving breakfast 2012
 

The Department of Finance and Investment Management at the University of Johannesburg held their annual prize giving breakfast on Friday, 2 March 2012, at the Johannesburg Country Club in Auckland Park.

The guest speaker for this prestigious event was Dr Roelof Botha. As a seasoned veteran of the public speaking circuit in Southern Africa, Dr Botha has managed to captivate audiences with his unique style of blending the serious matters of economics and politics with the lighter side of life. His presentations are regarded as broadly motivational, in terms of highlighting research that confirms numerous positive structural changes in the Southern African economy. The guests thoroughly enjoyed Dr Botha’s informative, positive and enlightened presentation.

Thirty three prestigious prizes were awarded to the Department’s top 2011 students. The prizes were sponsored by the Department’s generous annual sponsors: KPMG, LexisNexis, Imperial Logistics, FPI, PPS, FAT Training & CIMA.  The top achievers were accompanied by their parents, family and friends.  This event is one of the Department’s most prestigious events on the year calendar.

Amongst the well-deserved prize winners were Dr Mdu Gama, who received the DFIM Exceptional Achievement Award. As the first person to obtain a PhD (Finance) in the Department of Finance and Investment Management since the department's establishment within UJ in 2005, following the merger between RAU and TWR, as well as the first person to obtain a PhD (Finance) in South Africa, this prestigious award was awarded to Dr Gama.
