NWU alumni to debate the future of South Africa beyond 2025

What might the future of South Africa look like beyond 2025? Where will the consumers of the future be located? How will smart cities evolve? Can inequality be overcome? And, how will technology alter commerce and development?

These will be the topics of debate during an alumni gathering on 3 August 2018 of graduates from the North-West University’s (NWU’s) Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences on the campus in Vanderbijlpark. (On this campus the faculty was previously known as the Faculty of Economic Sciences and Information Technology.)

The event will start at 18:00 and will be hosted at the Emerald Resort and Casino in Vanderbijlpark.

The discussion will be facilitated by Stefan Olivier, alumnus and chairperson of the Golden Triangle Chamber of Commerce (GTCOC) and all BCom graduates are invited to join in the debate.
