The Central University of Technology (CUT) held a professorial inaugural lecture in honour of Prof. Dennis Dzansi on Thursday (15/02).

The lecture honoured Dzansi’s excellent work.

He holds the influential position of Head of Business Support Studies and Research Unit for Enterprise Studies in the Faculty of Management Sciences at the institution.

Dzansi received a feather in cap for his presentation titled “Becoming a truly Entrepreneurial University: Implications for CUT”.

“His presentation focused on an entrepreneurial university as an institution that has embedded the entrepreneurial spirit in its DNA.

“His lecture offered an opportunity for universities to re-examine their roles in relation to the desire for change,” explained Prof. Henk de Jager, vice-chancellor and principal of CUT.

“CUT awards these to academics who are highly accomplished and widely recognised among their peers.

“For me, the entrepreneurial spirit refers to passion, positivity, leadership, ambition and adaptability in turning every challenge into a viable business opportunity. It is also dominated by individuals with an entrepreneurial mind-set.”

De Jager said by becoming entrepreneurial, universities would have an impact in their immediate societies, focusing on education, research and entrepreneurship.
