Ms Stella Heyns, a postgraduate student in Sustainable Agriculture at the University of the Free State (UFS), had an exceptional achievement by obtaining a first place in all four of the evaluation categories of the international GLO-BUS business strategy simulations. GLO-BUS, which is the world's first real international simulation focusing on competitive business strategy, is used by the Centre for Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development at the UFS. The GLO-BUS exercise is done online and students are not only competing in the class, but also on an international level against other registered students. In South Africa, the UFS, Stellenbosch University and the Wits Business School is taking part in GLO-BUS. Here are, from the left: Prof. Klopper Oosthuizen, Department of Agricultural Economics at the UFS and presenter of the module within the Sustainable Agriculture programme, Ms Heyns, and Prof. Izak Groenewald, Director: Centre for Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development.
