Solusi graduating class of 2017 was treated to wise counsel from Commencement speaker, Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Deputy Governor, Dr. Kupukile Mlambo, in his address on the occasion of the 21st graduation ceremony at Solusi University.
Deputy Governor Mlambo urged the 586 graduates to be “innovative workers” as they enter a world of work that has so many challenges.
“In today’s world, the only companies that stay ahead are those that are continuously innovating. This increases the need for changing skills. That means, going beyond being a knowledge worker, you have to product differentiate yourself from other knowledge workers by being an innovation worker”, he counselled.
The Deputy Governor urged the new graduates to apply themselves mentally in the tasks they will undertake in the world of work.
“…demonstrate the ability to understand and review context, make correct judgements and provide relevant and creative solutions”, he urged.
The graduates were also encouraged to continuously improve themselves by acquiring an education that emphasizes meta-cognition, to demonstrate curiosity, ask questions with an aim of learning more and constantly network with people who think differently from them.
The Governor’s counsel is in line with Solusi University’s philosophy which is based on educating the whole person for service that will impact.
The Vice Chancellor of Solusi University, Professor Joel Musvosvi and Chancellor, Pastor Micah Choga later charged the graduates as is the tradition from Kamushinda Square to go out and serve communities for its betterment.
The University wishes the class of 2017 God’s blessings as they venture into the world and impact it.
