Although not an academic module, this is certainly an important part of my role. To help students understand that human capital is made of knowledge, skills and skills is essential. However, to explain that in real life attitude matters most and provides a leverage to make us who we are in a holistic sense is a privilege I value and a responsibility I take very wholeheartedly. It is equally important to help students recognise and develop skills that industry will need in the years to come so that they can make informed career choices and achieve the best of their potential.
My areas of interest include:
Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurship Education,
Social Capital, Social Networks and Innovation
Transport corridors and trade competitiveness in eastern and southern Africa A working group is still in its formation stage.
