Through an ongoing partnership with Wits Business School (WBS) and the Canadian based Carleton University, the Centre on African Philanthropy and Social Investment (CAPSI) has offered a joint elective on Philanthropy and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and faculty exchange with Carleton’s Masters in Philanthropy and Non-Profit Leadership (MPNL) programme.

The MPNL programme is led by Prof Susan Phillips and earlier this year, twelve of their students took part in the SDGs module. Carleton University and the MPNL programme hosted Dr Keratiloe Mogotsi, a WBS lecturer, from 1 June to 1 July 2023 as a visiting scholar.

This involved providing lectures, an exchange programme with students and faculty, engagementsand participating in speaking engagements for the 10-year anniversary of the MPNL programme. “We are excited about this partnership and the growth of the Masters in Philanthropy programme with international collaborators such as Carleton University. It is a tremendous opportunity for both institutions” says Dr Mogotsi.

WBS students studying African Philanthropy have the opportunity to co-learn and collaborate with their counterparts in Canada through this joint elective module in Philanthropy and Sustainable development goals, at a time when sustainability is of the essence globally.
