Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), UK,2002, P/F

Master of Business Administration (MBA) McGill University, Montreal, Canada, 1991

Bachelor of Commerce (B.Comm.), UB, 1988.  

I have natural leadership abilities that have been demonstrated since my secondary school years as I was appointed a school prefect at form four and appointed a house captain for Wiloughby, also called House F  (a year later)  at Moeding college. I was also chosen as a chair-person of Scripture Union for two years in the same college during my senior years. From Moeding college I moved on to the University of Botswana for my first degree, where I studied Business Management and Accounting  from  1984 to 1988 where I graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree with a 2(i) classification. I was then recruited to be a Staff Development Fellow(SDF) in the School of Accounting and Management Studies(SAMS) in the Faculty of Social Sciences(FSS) in 1989-1991. After completing my Masters degree I was then appointed a Lecturer in SAMS which was later transformed to the Faculty of Business. The transformation enabled the creation of three departments in the Faculty in which I was placed in the Department of Management, a position which I hold to-date.

I teach Entrepreneurship and Management courses at Undergraduate and Masters levels in the Department of Management, which is under the Faculty of Business. Specific courses taught include Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurship and New Business Formation, Business Planning, New Venture Financing, Entrepreneurial Finance, Incubation Management, Organization Behaviour, Organization Theory, Small Business Management and Principles of Management.

My research interests centre around Entrepreneurship, covering its Theories and its Practice. Areas such as Entrepreneurial Frameworks, Policy and support structures, Ease of Doing Business, Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) studies I find interesting. I am interested in the areas of Business Strategy, General Management especially Organizational Behaviour and people management and Motivation as applied to HRM and Industrial Relations in both the private and public sectors.

I supervise MBA students in the areas of Entrepreneurship, and General Management; especially Organizational Behaviour topics, Compensation management and Motivation as applied to HRM and Industrial Relations.
