Metropolitan to help UWC boost SA youth's financial savvy

The University of the Western Cape has partnered with Metropolitan to empower students on financial literacy.

According to Charleen Duncan at UWC’s Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, this is a national CSI campaign by Metropolitan which is going to be rolled out across the country, empowering young people.

We believe at UWC that if our students graduate with entrepreneurial minds that they would be able to work in any sector in South Africa.

They will be part of a team where they will be exposed to design thinking methodology.
