Student Representation

Student participation in governance of the Faculty of Business and Law

The governance of an organisation is the structure and process which allows planning and decision-making to take place. It is about effective management and accountability to stakeholders.

The Faculty of Business and Law invites students to participate in the various boards and committees which control all aspects of the management of the Faculty to ensure input from our most important stakeholders - our students.
