The University continues to take the lead in the education sector in the country, with a particular focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. The accolades received are two Diamond Arrow Awards, in the categories of Higher Education/Tertiary Institution, and Executive Education through the Harold Pupkewitz Graduate School of Business (HP-GSB).
The awards are the culmination of a research process whereby companies and institutions are rated based on respondents’ perceptions with a focus on measuring customer satisfaction. A company, department, institution and individual cannot ‘enter’ the research process, but must always be nominated and rated by the respondents.
HP-GSB’s commitment to offering quality postgraduate business and management education was further strengthened with the development of a postgraduate Diploma in Management (PGDipl.M) scheduled for implementation this year.
Johan Hattingh, the Chief Executive Officer of PMR. Africa, said that the awards set a benchmark for industry.
From 2002 to 2008, the Institution has walked away with six PMR Gold Arrow Awards as the Best Higher Education/Tertiary Education Institution in Namibia, and has won the Diamond Arrow Award (top award) in this category every year since 2009.Dr Tjama Tjivikua, the NUST Vice-Chancellor and other senior managers were present to receive the award on behalf of the University.
