TSiBA’s fourth Mandela Rhodes scholar

07 Oct 2011

Thobela Mfeti has officially become TSiBA’ fourth Mandela Rhodes scholar in the four short years that we have been producing graduates.

This is an outstanding achievement for her and a glowing endorsement for us, as the MR scholarships are awarded to a handful of scholars throughout Africa who display excellence in terms of academic process and broader leadership potential. Indeed they are the next Mandelas.

Thobela will pursue a Masters in Tourism at UCT next year and her research will focus on township tourism. In her application letter to the Foundation she wrote, ” I am a township girl and I am proud of it, but I know that I know that there needs to be transformation and it starts with me. With my passion for township and its development, I have no doubt that I will bring about change.”

Please join me in celebrating Thobela and this very happy moment for TSiBA. Relative to the size of our graduate pool, we are proud that SA’s smallest and youngest university is continuing to produce a disproportionately high number of graduates of the very highest calibre.

   

The Tertiary School in Business Administration (TSiBA) was founded in 2004 with a vision to “Ignite Opportunity”.  Our mission is to be an innovative learning community that graduates entrepreneurial leaders who ignite opportunity and social change.
