Enterprises University of Pretoria: Human Resource, Communication and Scope Management in Projects

Enterprises University of Pretoria

The University of Pretoria established two campus entities in 2000 following a strategic decision to develop a formal structure to organise its interaction with the private sector and government. These two entities – Business Enterprises at University of Pretoria (Pty) Ltd and Continuing Education at University of Pretoria Trust – ensured that the University’s external research and continuing education activities could be managed from a business foundation to generate additional income for the University and its personnel. Enterprises at University of Pretoria Trust was formally founded in 2008, and became operational as the official corporate holding entity for the Group.

In January 2016, the three companies were consolidated into one company – Enterprises University of Pretoria (Pty) Ltd – with the University of Pretoria as the sole beneficiary.
