Commerce toasts students

12 September 2005

Winning smile: Final-year student Landiwe Sindani won the award for CADP student of the year.

The Faculty of Commerce recently celebrated the "academic excellence" of students on its academic-development programmes at two awards ceremonies.

At the first, hosted at the Bellville head office of sponsors, the Sanlam Group, prizes were handed out to the top 37 performers, from first- to fifth-year, on the bachelor of business science Extended Curriculum Programme (ECP). The payoff for Sanlam's R5-million investment comes this year - the first batch of students to go onto the Sanlam-funded programme, back in 2001, graduate this year.

There was also merry-making at the ceremony of the Commerce Academic Development Programme (CADP), run over four years for BCom students. This year, CADP again lauded the frontrunners from each of its four classes (or cohorts). The CADP event was attended - and bankrolled - by Duncan Saville, a UCT commerce graduate now based in Australia and London. Saville's R2.5-million award to the CADP programme helps many students from disadvantaged backgrounds through their BCom studies.
