The College of Economic and Management Sciences (CEMS) is committed to identifying African solutions to ensure that the College becomes a leading role player and producer of research in identified strategic niche areas on the African continent. Prof Raphael Mpofu, Deputy Executive Dean, leads the research portfolio of the College. In an effort to focus the research activities, the College has identified a number of research niche areas and put several structures in place to motivate and support staff. These include financial assistance from the College Research Committee and research-related assistance provided by the College of Graduate Studies and Research. CEMS researchers have access to several funding opportunities and support programmes within and outside the university. The College functions within four imperatives, namely transformation, sustainability, productivity and influence of the research and innovation framework.
