Three students from the Faculty of Management Sciences will keep the Tshwane University of Technology’s name high when they pursue an MBA progamme at the Chang’an University in China. Khensani Maluleka, Natile Xhakaza and Patience Makhubela left for China on 31 August after receiving full scholarships from the Chinese Scholarship Council to enrol for the master’s programme. 

According to Professor Edward Rankhumise, acting Executive Dean of the Faculty of Management Sciences, the full scholarships were made possible by a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which was signed between TUT and Chang’an University, Xian in 2013.

 “The three students applied for the scholarships in March 2016 and subsequently succeeded to be interviewed by the Vice President of Chang’an University, Weidong Lyu, who visited South Africa in June 2016,” he said.

“As a Faculty, we take pride in pursuing the MOU and MOA through students exchanges with our partner university. These students will study towards the MBA for a period of four years,” Prof Rankhumise said.

On their arrival in China, the three students were welcomed by the Vice President of Chang’an University, Prof Bouquan Liu, and other senior staff members from the university.
