Graduate School of Business and Leadership academic Dr Joy Ndlovu wants to use her Doctor of Business Administration qualification to strengthen and develop her academic career.

‘My reason for pursuing this qualification is that it is a step up from my MBA and will equip me with additional skills. However, more than anything I want to also contribute to research and new literature,’ said Ndlovu.

Ndlovu, who has a wealth of experience in business obtained through being a director on various company boards across multiple industries in the private and public sectors, chose human resource governance as her research focus.

Her dissertation titled: “The Impact of HR Governance in the Success of the Microfinance Sector in South Africa”, examines and assesses the microfinance sector - its impact, structure, efficiencies and deficiencies.

‘This study is significant in that it enables a detailed analysis of what works best in South Africa’s micro-finance sector in relation to governance and sustainability of the sector and proposes a multidimensional sector-relevant human resources governance framework,’ said Ndlovu.

While devoting her time to her studies meant limiting her corporate work, turning down major projects and promotion and even less time with her family, Ndlovu is confident the rewards of obtaining this qualification are worth it.

‘This qualification will enhance my career by opening up better opportunities. I will get involved in more significant projects and it will strengthen my developing academic career.

‘My boys - my husband and three sons - are extremely happy and proud that I was able to achieve this highest qualification while juggling a number of projects and duties. My proud parents are telling everyone they know about how I have reached the pinnacle,’ she said.
