BCom Honours Student Graduates Cum Laude
Supply Chain Management’s Ms Yarissa Govender graduated with her Bachelor of Commerce Honours degree cum laude.
‘After completing my Bachelor’s degree, I was keen on learning more about the supply chain role and the way it works. It is a fast-changing and constantly evolving field and therefore, one must constantly keep learning and improving their knowledge and skills to keep abreast of changes and current trends,’ said Govender.
Taking into consideration that the supply chain function plays a critical role in almost every organisation around the world, Govender is already furthering her studies in the United States.
‘I am about to begin my master’s in Supply Chain Management in Miami. My honours qualification specialising in supply chain management played a critical role in my acceptance into a masters programme specialising in supply chain and international logistics management,’ she said.
Looking to the future, Govender is excited about the possibilities. ‘This qualification can open many career doors as it offers numerous job opportunities and prospects for career growth both locally and internationally. My parents are my biggest supporters and have instilled in me the importance of hard work and being proactive. They will always be the main reason for my successes or achievements in life.’
