School of Management Sciences


The Department of Business Management from the School of Management Sciences made special efforts in the NMMU Open Day that was held on the 10th and 11th May 2013.

The theme this year was “Discover your dreams: a kaleidoscope of dreams await you” – similar to the previous year; however our faculty colors was of great emphasis this year.

The purpose of the Open Day was to provide prospective students an opportunity to interact with students and staff members, and also to furnish them with information that would aid their choice of study. This also gave the Department an opportunity to market the programmes offered and provide career advice to prospective students.

Stalls were set up on Thursday 9 May 2013, where after an opening function was held to give recognition to NMMU’s top feeder schools. The following day, the official Open Day started (10 May 2013) where matriculants were transported to the Sports Centre by the busloads from schools from as far as Kwa-Zulu Natal, Cape Town and Johannesburg. Saturday 11 May, gave the parents an opportunity to join their children for the Open Day activities.

Approximately 6 000 learners and parents attended the Open Day this year.

Thank you to all staff members who participated in this event – job well done.

Below are some pictures that were taken during the two day event for the Department of Business Management.
