SISTERS’ DREAMS TO EXCEL ACADEMICALLY COME TRUE WITH MANCOSA MBA DEGREES

It is never too late to turn dreams into a reality. This has been proven by sisters, Dr Phumudzo Nemutaduni, 39, and Salani Nemutaduni, 31, who recently graduated with MBA Degrees at MANCOSA’s graduation ceremony. 

“It was a most defining and emotional moment for my mother, my sister and I. My father would have been very proud of us,” said Dr Nemutaduni. 

Growing up, Dr Nemutaduni dreamed of being a medical doctor.

“In eighth grade, I addressed myself as Dr Nemutaduni on the cover of my books, which some teachers frowned upon, but I had a dream,” she said.

In addition to her MBA, she holds a Bachelor of Medicine and a Bachelor of Surgery Degrees (MBChB), a Masters in Nuclear Medicine (Mmed) and a Nuclear Medicine Fellowship.

After completing her studies in Nuclear Medicine, Dr Nemutaduni faced the possibility of having to relocate from Johannesburg to another province in order to secure a specialist post. However, the mother of two did not want to relocate and leave her children.

“I continued to work as a registrar, earning the same salary I had earned four years prior when I joined the department and depression started sinking in with each passing month,” she said. 

This led her to pursue MBA studies through private higher education institution, MANCOSA.

“I needed an MBA to help improve my knowledge about business, personal development, business communication skills and develop management skills,” she said. 

Dr Nemutaduni believes that further education and acquiring leadership skills are essential to empowering the youth to have problem-solving skills that they can apply to real-world situations.

“Leadership skills also help build confidence among youth and teaches them how to help others in historically-disadvantaged areas with limited resources,” she said. 

Dr Nemutaduni’s goal is to help market medical equipment into Africa that assist in the early diagnosis of cancer. The cause is close to her heart, having lost her father and brother-in-law to the disease.

“It is the small and repetitive tasks that yield into success. I believe in asking for assistance if I do not know. I am open to learning and admitting when I am wrong. Success comes through learning from your mistakes,” she added.

The Nemutaduni sisters are forces to be reckoned with and the journey never stops for them. When asked about their next steps, the two expressed their desire to now move on to registering for their PhD.
