Wits Business School invites you to the next session of our Leadership Dialogues in which Mills Soko, Professor of International Business and Strategy at WBS, will be in conversation with Professor Zeblon Vilakazi, Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of the Witwatersrand.
The conversation will explore Prof Vilakazi’s fascinating back story, as well as discuss his vision for the university and assess progress since he took the helm of the institution at the beginning of the year.  
What is the role and place of Wits University in South Africa, Africa and the world? What are the strategic priorities of the university leadership? How will Wits reset in the post-Covid 19 period? What impact will dwindling financial resources have on the academic enterprise? How can the challenge of poor students' access and high dropout rates be solved? How will Wits achieve its goal of attracting and retaining the best talent? What is the future of higher education in South Africa?  
These are just some of the questions the conversation will tackle.
