Africa’s first Chair in Digital Business is to be established at WBS through an initial five-year funding commitment from Telkom.
The Telkom Chair in Digital Business is a first for South Africa and the continent and will ensure that as a business school located in the economic heart of Africa, we are at the forefront of delivering important research and relevant programmes that are essential for doing business in today’s digitised world.
WBS plans to conduct research in the field of digital business in Africa, and advance awareness of digital business and readiness by engaging with business, government and communities. Potential future developments include WBS offering a Master of Management in Digital Business, and the establishment of a Centre for Digital Business.
Details around when courses will start, academic appointments, research and curriculum information will be announced in the future.
