The University of Pretoria established two campus entities in 2000 following a strategic decision to develop a formal structure to organise its interaction with the private sector and government.
These two entities – Business Enterprises at University of Pretoria (Pty) Ltd and Continuing Education at University of Pretoria Trust – ensured that the University’s external research and continuing education activities could be managed from a business foundation to generate additional income for the University and its personnel.
Enterprises at University of Pretoria Trust was formally founded in 2008, and became operational as the official corporate holding entity for the Group.
In January 2016, the three companies were consolidated into one company – Enterprises University of Pretoria (Pty) Ltd – with the University of Pretoria as the sole beneficiary.
An overview of the annual activities of all the entities in the company reflects the magnitude of investment through many hours of dedicated effort and venture funding in a complex platform of diverse outputs.
By utilizing embedded knowledge, combined with an ethical business approach, an environment of credible growth is ensured, supported by the excellence for which its contributors are known.
Community involvement – through corporate social investment and enterprise development activities – affirms the company’s commitment to its values and mission. Enterprises University of Pretoria works closely with initiatives that support social upliftment and entrepreneurial ventures.
We empower others through our corporate social investment and enterprise development activities.
