Graduating with distinction is nothing new for MANCOSA Bachelor of Commerce graduate Ms Lindelwa Zungu who obtained her second tertiary qualification cum laude when she was capped at the recent graduation ceremony at the Durban International Convention Centre (ICC).
The Sales and Marketing Assistant at NCP Alcohols whose first tertiary qualification – a Diploma in Marketing – obtained with distinction, was taken by surprise when it was announced at the MANCOSA graduation that she was conferred with her Bachelor of Commerce degree cum laude.
“The build-up to this day has been phenomenal. I did not know I’m a cum laude graduate until today. It’s an amazing feeling. I’m happy with myself. They (academics – Professor Lowies) have been helpful and informative when it came to my studies,” said Ms Zungu.
The MANCOSA graduation ceremony was even more special for Ms Zungu who missed her graduation ceremony on completion of her first qualification as she was studying abroad on a Fulbright Scholarship in San Francisco.
Passionate about brand management and a love for this field has been pivotal to Ms Zungu’s success.
She plans on pursuing further education to realise her career goals.
