UKZN Graduates excelled at the College of Law and Management Studies’ Pietermaritzburg Graduation ceremony with seven receiving their degrees cum laude.

Ms  Yumna Asmathullah, Mr Steven Gurney and Mr Muhammad Ismail graduated with Bachelor of Commerce degrees while Ms Lauren Canham, Mr Dornu Kpagith, Mr Jonathan McElwee and Ms Perpetua Ngulube graduated with Bachelor of Commerce Honours degrees.

Ismail, who is doing his honours degree, said he believed the qualification was a stepping stone to a successful career in Chartered Accountancy.

‘I will be serving my articles with PwC next year. The CA qualification in South Africa is highly regarded, providing a diverse skill set, enabling one to branch off into a variety of fields. I would like to proceed with my masters and perhaps enter the academic environment as well as develop entrepreneurial skills. As a South African citizen, it is my duty to contribute to the upliftment of the underprivileged and impact positively on their lives,’ he said.

Gurney is studying for his honours in Economics at the University of Cape Town, while Ngulube is already involved in an exciting career opportunity. ‘I am currently on the Unilever Future Leaders programme and in my current role, I am an Assistant Brand Manager taking care of the Knorr brand. I am walking in the dream of any marketing graduate. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength,’ said Ngulube.
