School of Management
(Including the Centre for Actuarial Research (CARe))
Head of School: Dr Shannon Kendal
School Profile
The School of Management Studies provides courses from
introductory and advanced honours level in management
to students registered for the Business Science degree,
and other degrees and postgraduate diplomas. Housed
in the School are the Actuarial Science, Business Finance,
Marketing and Organisational Psychology streams and
Professional Communication Unit. Postgraduate diplomas
in management are also offered by the School, in Marketing,
Entrepreneurship, Sport and Tourism Management. The
School also offers management courses in finance,
marketing, professional communication and industrial/
organisational psychology to students from faculties
outside the Commerce Faculty. Research is supervised at
the honours, master’s and doctoral levels in Management.
The Actuarial Science Section (Ms S. Ramjee) produces
approximately 20% of all South African actuaries. More than
half of our graduates go on to complete the professional
examinations to qualify as actuaries, which is one of
the highest qualification rates of any university in South
Africa. In addition, a significant number of our graduates
go on to complete other professional qualifications such
as the CFA. In 2001 UCT became the second university
in the world to have postgraduate courses recognised
for exemption from the professional United Kingdom
examinations. In 2010, the local actuarial qualification was
introduced in South Africa and UCT plays a key role as a
provider of education to the profession.
The section also includes the Centre for Actuarial
Research (CARe), established in 2001. It focusses on
building capacity, improving techniques and producing
independent research in demography. The Centre is
internationally recognised in the field of estimation of
demographic parameters from limited, defective and
deficient data. The Centre’s other major field of work
is in demographic and epidemiological modelling and
population projections. In addition, the Centre hosts a
postgraduate training programme in demography with
both master’s and PhD students. It is the only unit of its
kind at an African university.
