summa cum laude.
Bachelor of Commerce Honours summa cum laude graduate Mr Brian Skea will use his postgraduate qualifications as a stepping stone to a successful career.
Skea, who is considering a career in information technology, says that doing an honours degree has opened up opportunities for him to create a network with business contacts and support structures which will be valuable for his future career.
Skea’s research titled: “Computer E-safety in Schools”, investigated high school teachers’ perspectives and understanding of and access to resources relating to the domain of E-safety.
‘The qualification has placed me in a favourable position in the IT job market,’ said Skea. ‘UKZN is a fine academic institution which provides tremendous support through its learning structures with willing lecturers and cutting-edge facilities. I found my research challenging yet fulfilling and I have already been approached by some large corporate companies.
‘I hope to one day return to study towards an MBA degree at UKZN after which I will hopefully acquire a managerial consulting position,’ said Skea.
