1. Mission / purpose
The Unit for Applied Management Sciences (hereafter UAMS) represents the research pillar of the School of Management Sciences. The reason for the existence of the UAMS is to act as the consulting and research arm for the various departments comprising the School of Management Sciences (Business Management, Logistics, Marketing Management, as well as Management and Entrepreneurship). In this capacity the Unit gives effect to the School’s mission, namely to be: A School that will be renowned for its impact on the local business and broader community through the offering of comprehensive, relevant and quality teaching and research products by respected academics.
1.1 Alignment with vision and mission of the NMMU
The NMMU’s vision is to be a dynamic African university, recognised for its leadership in generating cutting-edge knowledge for a sustainable future. Its mission is to offer a diverse range of quality educational opportunities that will make a critical and constructive contribution to regional, national and global sustainability. To achieve this vision and mission, it will ensure:

  • Values inform and define institutional ethos and distinctive educational purpose and philosophy.

  • Commitment to promoting equity of access and opportunities so as to give students the best chance of success in their pursuit of lifelong learning and diverse educational goals.

  • A vibrant, stimulating and richly diverse environment that enables staff and students to reach their full potential.

  • Development of graduates and diplomates to be responsible global citizens capable of critical reasoning, innovation, and adaptability.

  • Sustaining an environment that encourages and supports a vibrant research, scholarship and innovation culture.

  • Mutually beneficial partnerships locally, nationally and globally to enhance social, economic, and ecological sustainability.

The mission of the UAMS also contributes to the achievement of the mission and strategic direction of the University and Faculty of Business and Economic Sciences as the Unit strives to develop socially and technologically competent professionals from diverse cultural and geographical backgrounds through sustaining, generating and imparting advanced knowledge by means of research, consulting, teaching and networking. The Unit strives to create an environment that encourages and supports a vibrant research culture in the School of Management Sciences and to develop mutually beneficial partnerships locally and nationally as well as internationally.


The main objectives of the UAMS are:



  • To establish, maintain and grow a creative research culture in the School of Management Sciences.

  • To study and conduct research in the fields of business management, entrepreneurship and business development.

  • To offer postgraduate students the opportunity to participate in business practice.

  • To promote the principles of entrepreneurship at all levels of the population.

  • To disseminate relevant information among particular stakeholders.

  • To provide advice to stakeholders through training and consultation.

  • To offer short courses, on an income-generating basis, at all levels of management.

  • To promote the establishment of small business enterprises in the widest meaning of the term.

Collectively, all of the above objectives converge in economic and business development with a focus on job creation and entrepreneurship. The Unit also strives as far as possible to align some of its research activities to the institutional research theme of sustainable local economic development, which is linked to the sub-themes of entrepreneurship, SMMEs and family businesses; local economic development and ethics and social responsibility. Many of the outputs reflected in this report are testimony of research conducted within these institutional research themes.

The Unit undertake to uphold the following values of the NMMU:


  • Respect for diversity by fostering an environment in which diversity is appreciated, respected and celebrated;

  • Excellence by promoting, recognise and reward excellence in research within the School;

  • Ubuntu by being a people-centred unit respecting the dignity of others;

  • Integrity by behaving in an ethical and professional manner and to be accountable and transparent;

  • Responsibility for actions and achievement of personal and institutional goals; and

  • Respect for the natural environment by conserving, protecting and managing natural resources and to embrace environmentally-friendly practices.
