Fees Must Fall: ‘No reason why Govt shouldn’t ask listed companies for help’

There’s no reason why government shouldn’t go to one or two big listed companies.

Prof Piet Naude

There are no losers in this… it’s a win-win situation.

Prof Piet Naude

Public-private partnerships is the answer to South Africa’s higher education funding dilemma.

So said Professor Piet Naude of the University of Stellenbosch Business School.

He’s of the opinion that Government shouldn’t only increase the number of Technical and Vocational Education and Training Colleges, but also change the curricula of the colleges.

Naude also said that South Africa’s universities should divide into two segments:

  • Type A - universities which are places of teaching and learning and where first degrees are four years in duration.

  • Type B - universities which are more research-orientated and where degrees in specialist professions, such as architecture and engineering, are offered.

John Maytham interviewed Naude.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

Why must [only] the state pay for it if it’s a national need?

Prof Piet Naude

The return on [a company’s] investment will be the human capital.

Prof Piet Naude

What I’m asking is not that radical.

Prof Piet Naude

We retain the public autonomy of universities, but they work with industry.
