Prof Shelley Farrington and Mr Riyaad Ismail recently attended the 33rd Annual Southern Africa Institute for Management Scientists (SAIMS) Conference, which took place at Mpekweni Beach Resort (close to Port Alfred), from the 11th to the 14th of September 2022.


They presented two papers titled: “Formal Entrepreneurship Education in the context of South African Public Universities: Some Exploratory Insights” and “Co-Curricular Student Entrepreneurship Support at South African Public Universities”. These papers are outcomes of the international collaborative project between Nelson Mandela University, University of Pretoria, Ghent University (Belgium) and Vlir-uos, and focused on disseminating best practices in student entrepreneurship support at South African Public Universities. Other outcomes of the collaborative project, namely the Student Entrepreneurship Support (SES) website and Tool, as well as the project report  and cases, were also presented to session delegates at the conference.
