A message from the Vice-Chancellor

Prof Tshilidzi Marwala

in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Among its various accolades and milestones, we are proud to note that the School is a major graduate contributor for the sector, has made great strides to raise its research profile and ranking, and successfully operates 4-star graded commercial facilities across our various campuses. The STH is truly living up to its motto of trading with a purpose. It is befitting that this 50th- anniversary celebration took place in September, which is recognised at Tourism and Heritage Month.

On 17 February 1969, 22 students were registered for the National Diploma in Hotel Management at the Witwatersrand College for Advanced Technical Education. Fifty years later, as the University of Johannesburg, we recognise and commemorate the rich history and legacy upon which the School of Tourism and Hospitality (STH) is built. Today, the STH is known as a world-class institution driven by a consistent vision to develop critical thinkers and problem-solvers for the tourism and hospitality sector

A big thank you to all our industry partners and alumni for their continued support. Congratulations to the winners of the Golden Circle and Rising Star Alumnus Awards, Gert Brumme and Thobile Dlamini. May the School of Tourism and Hospitality proceed to grow from strength to strength in the next fifty years and beyond!
