Stenden SA Kicks-off 2017 Academic Year

Stenden South Africa, renowned educators in the fields of Hospitality Management and Disaster Management, held their Academic Opening ceremony for 2017 last week as the campus continues to grow following a record number of applicants.

Addressing a fully-packed auditorium Mrs. Ronel Bartlett, Marketing and Education Support Office Manager at Stenden South Africa welcomed students and guests before Executive Dean Dr. Wouter Hensens presented his speech on the outlook for 2017.

Stenden South Africa has always been committed to not only educating students, but also striving to unleash the potential in students, staff and the community at large.

Stenden's philosophy towards higher education is that the student should be at the center of the learning experience and that learning should translate into knowledge, skills, and attitude that have value in the industry that students are being educated for.

They give shape to this approach through Problem Based Learning in which students work on industry cases in groups not exceeding 12 students. Stenden’s dedicated learning hotel, the accalaimed MyPond Hotel, and practical field exercises are other examples of Stenden prepares students for the real world in a challenging way.
