On 1 July 2017, the University of Johannesburg (UJ) opened the doors of its College of Business and Economics (CBE,UJ), delivering excellent, practice-orientated commerce education.
This move sees the CBE combine the innovative strengths of previous UJ Faculty of Management and Faculty of Economic and Financial Sciences in the areas of teaching and learning, and knowledge creation to grow multi-faceted, entrepreneurial business leaders.
The academic excellence and quality standards of commerce education and research will remain exemplary as the College engage issues relating to poverty, inequality and poor economic access that challenge the African continent.
Aligned to the University’s strategic goals of being a Pan-African Centre of Excellence, the CBE will continue to provide high-quality academic and practical solutions to business and economic problems. In time, the CBE will no doubt position UJ as a leader in African commerce.
