Faculty Of Management and Law

Message from the Executive Dean: Prof O Sibanda

Greetings from the Office of the Executive Dean of the Faculty of Management and Law (FML). Welcome to another academic year at FML! I hope you had an enjoyable and restorative break, those of you who are returning. We are glad to have you join us if you are new here. You have come to the right place – a faculty dedicated to the highest levels of community engagement, teaching, and high-quality research and innovation. The academic year 2023 promises to be another dynamic year for the faculty, and your commitment to the success of FML’s academic enterprise is invaluable. As FML’s Executive Dean, I am delighted and look forward to connecting with many of you throughout the academic year 2023.

The Faculty of Management and Law advances scholarship in teaching, innovative research and relevant community engagement. As part of a university grounded in the timeless commitment to ‘Finding Solutions for Africa’, we teach students to think innovatively, creatively, analytically and broadly – to seek out new ideas in both the pursuit to become lifelong learners and help find solutions to challenges in their communities and Africa in general. Part of our DNA has been to produce some of the country’s most illustrious alumni and leaders in different professions and communities.

The past three years have been challenging for all our stakeholders with the onset of COVID-19 pandemic. That being the case, FML continued to be buoyed by the resilience and optimism of its students, faculty, staff and alumni. What we have learnt will allow us to be more nimble as FML stakeholders, and to continue to grow as we fulfill our mission and vision.

We look forward to a successful academic year 2023, and providing the best experience for those who are joining us for the first time.


To be a progressive and influential Faculty with a regional and international reputation in development, management and law.
