Faculty of Economics and Information Technology Systems

I take pleasure in welcoming you to this newly formed Faculty of Economics and Information Technology Systems. Our faculty derives its strength from its vision, of aspiring to be an intellectual technological and research hub for generating knowledge necessary for participation in the local and global environment. We take pride in being one of the faculties at Walter Sisulu University producing a new generation of highly-skilled and well-rounded graduates who are groomed to address complex societal challenges through the use of innovative learning and teaching, technology and research-based solutions. The faculty consists of three departments namely, Economics and Finance, Management Studies, and Information Technology Systems. Our programmes are tailored at focusing on a responsive curriculum, pedagogy, and context that reflect inclusivity and are cognisant of African solutions.

I look forward therefore to welcoming into our midst entrepreneurial and inquisitive young minds that will not only contribute to knowledge generation but will also contribute to the solution of problems and ills that confront our communities today. I am fully committed to assisting you to have a smooth transition from school to university life. Once again, I welcome you and I feel proud of starting this journey together with you.
