Wits Business School will be hosting, for the first time in its history, a WBS Business Clinic (free of charge), targeted to staff, and individuals from the public and community, who would normally be unable to afford costs of tuition and programme fees at WBS.
The WBS ‘Business Clinic’ Concept simply refers to a structured day of lectures or talks, where our academic staff, in the spirit of service, over the course of a single day, will share their business knowledge, skills and acumen pro bono.
Outcomes of Service Project WBS academic staff want participants to walk away with a basic understanding of concepts and practice associated with core business: marketing, strategy, financial accounting, IT, business plans, interviewing, personal branding. Essentially, to impart basic knowledge in core areas, with a view to achieving knowledge acquisition and skills’ development.
Target Audience Our target is someone who is not able to afford our programmes, and hence economically poorer. It is someone who may be formally under-employed or unemployed. Our target participant is someone who could benefit from basic business knowledge and skills – perhaps to move into a new or different job or position in her existing work, thus moving up the income ladder and improving economic welfare; or, someone who is employed and needs further knowledge of concepts.
The Business Clinic is free for participants. Academic staff will provide their lectures at no charge.
