The Faculty of Business and Management Sciences recently welcomed this semester’s cohort of incoming international exchange students to CPUT and said their goodbyes to their CPUT counterparts who were jetting abroad.
The Faculty’s Associate Dean, Ivan Van den Heever, urged the 22 incoming students from Europe to use their stay in Cape Town to take advantage of the city’s tourist destinations such as Table Mountain.
Van den Heever challenged them to learn about local culture so that they can share their experiences when they return home.
The orientation week included a welcoming luncheon, which was hosted by Van der Heever and Dr Diane Bell, Manager: Special Initiatives and Projects.
The students took a tour of the District Six Campus, attended a Library orientation and Information literacy training session. They also undertook a peninsula tour and a cultural tour on which they were guided by Bell and Nicole Umwizerwa, Co-ordinator of International Exchanges in the Faculty
The students are from the following universities Fontys in the Netherlands (3), Ingolstadt in Germany (5), Osnabrueck in Germany (3), Muenster in Germany (3), Worms in Germany (4) and Nuertingen (4) in Germany.
At a separate event, the Faculty bid farewell to 14 of its students who were leaving to attend classes at its European partners. The ecstatic students are from the Departments of Entrepreneurship (2), Cost & Management Accounting (2), Real Estate (1), Management (3), Retail Business Management (2), Human Resources Management (2) and Marketing (2).
