Dr. Mazhambe says, “Students in my class can expect to learn about business management. I will stretch them. I prefer discussions to lectures, which is why I teach at a small college. I will give 100 percent effort to assist students to achieve student learning outcomes and prepare them to be competent managers and leaders. They will definitely know about the benefits of a Christian and ethical approach to business management. The goal is to give students the skills and abilities for the next phase of learning experience in the workplace”.
