July 2012 Update

Hi World,

It has been a long time since I have posted a blog here due to the fact that in January this year I enrolled at NMMU Business school for an MBA. The degree is of course taking up a large portion of my time hence why I only got to day 5 of Lauren and my Cape Town trip.

The NMMU MBA is a Block Release course that runs over 3 years. The core modules are listed below. Those that are blue I have already completed, those that are red I am currently busy with and will write exams in August. Those in green I will start in September this year

The core modules include:

  • Marketing Management 
  • Organisational Behaviour
  • Financial Management
  • International Management
  • Management Accounting Aspects
  • Quantitative Techniques for Management
  • Operations Management
  • Research Methodology
  • Management Economics
  • Human Resource Strategies
  • Strategic Management
  • Leadership
  • Leadership Project
On top of the MBA Lauren and I have embarked on the adventure of our own company, well actually Lauren has started a company which I will sork for hopefully in the future :-). The company that Lauren has started in called SIMPLISTIC Retail and the FunctioninART brand is my passion.
FunctioninART is a brand that will make furniture and Home Decor items that incorporate artist canvases and artwork as part of the design. We are currently in the prototype phase of development.
Watch this space as we move forward with the company.
