Durban University of Technology (DUT)
DUT is the greenest campus in the country.
At a recent awards ceremony hosted by the African Green Campus Initiative (Agci) at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, DUT won the 2013 award for the best institution with a Green Campus Initiative.
The other universities nominated for the award  were the Tshwane University of Technology, the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, the University of Limpopo and the Mangosuthu University of Technology.
Agci was started in 2011 as South Africa was preparing to host the global COP17 conference. It was established with the aim of promoting environmental sustainability and climate change interventions at college and university campuses in South Africa. Agci is funded by the Southern African chapter of the Association of Colleges and University Housing Officers International.
KwaZulu-Natal Agci regional coordinator Sifundo Nkosi congratulated the institution and said that there was a lot of improvement at DUT considering that the initiative was only launched in August last year when DUT came second in the competition.

UCT’s Graduate School of Business (GSB) has been rated the best business school in Africa at the 6th Eduniversal World Convention of the Best Business Schools.
“To receive such an award from our national and international peers is an honour and a powerful testimonial to the way we teach business management and leadership at the GSB,” UCT GSB director Walter Baets told Bizcommunity News.
The Eduniversal International Scientific Committee (ISC) nominates 1 000 business schools from 153 countries. Schools are nominated based on universality and international reputation. Deans and directors from the nominated business schools then vote for the best school.
The UCT GSB full-time MBA (Master of Business Administration) is the only one in Africa to feature in the Financial Times’ 2013 Top 100 Global MBA Ranking.
