The Central University of Technology Free State has strengthened ties with two German universities in collaborative exchange education programmes. The two German universities are the Aalen University of Applied Sciences and the Harz University of Applied Sciences.

Conclusion of the partnership followed the recent tour by Prof. Tshedi Naong, head of the Department of Business Management in the Faculty of Management Sciences at CUT. The education exchange programme is set to focus on staff exchange programmes and collaborative research initiatives.

The partnership between these two German universities is part of CUT’s internationalisation strategy intended to expose students and academic staff to the globalised world.

Prof Naong’s engagements with Deans of the Faculty of Management Sciences and international office directors covered a myriad of substantive and mutually beneficial issues. Issues include the importance of understanding current international landscape and opportunities facing universities globally and how to create a better global community through partnership.

Part of the partnership will see a group of not less than 15 students from Aalen University attend a one-week programme on Human Resource programme at CUT during the Easter academic recess. The exchange programme is set to be in line with a standing arrangement to have yearly inbound and outbound students and staff exchanged annually among the three institutions.

CUT is reportedly already making great strides in relation to some of its commitments with regard to these partnerships. These include internationalisation of CUT’s curriculum and its footprint globally, as well as discussion on double-degree programmes between CUT and these institutions, which is gaining momentum.
