PhD Research Aims to Benefit Academics and Higher Education Institutions
Doctor of Philosophy graduate Dr Suvera Boodhoo’s research is aimed at benefiting Higher Education Institutions and academics.
‘My study focused on the perceptions of academics and students of how the University of KwaZulu-Natal has adopted the United Nation (UN) supported initiative, Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), to ensure responsible and sustainable management education in South Africa,’ said Boodhoo.
Highlights during her studies included interacting with diverse individuals within the UKZN community.
She says her studies were extremely difficult at times, however her family’s support and understanding assisted her in maintaining a balance.
Currently an academic at the University of Witwatersrand, Boodhoo advised doctoral candidates to never give up because ‘difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations.
‘I had a mix of feelings during my doctoral studies as there were numerous highs and lows during this journey. The support and invaluable guidance from my supervisor Professor Sanjana Brijball Paramasur enriched my experience.’
