The school strives to emulate the university’s vision of creating an inclusive and engaged research-intensive environment. We aim to support our students in attaining their academic aspirations and prepare them for their professional and working lives after graduation.

Similarly, the school aims to provide its staff with a supportive working environment where their careers can grow and flourish. Our strategic priorities include actively advancing transformation efforts in both the demographic profile and culture of the school, producing locally relevant research targeting vexing social, managerial and economic problems, and continually enhancing the quality of teaching in learning in our disciplines.
