Dean’s Welcome Note


Welcome to the Herbert Chitepo School of Law and Business Sciences​.  The School draws its inspiration from the University niche of Culture and Heritage.  In view of this, all programmes in the school have modules and/ or topics in the respective subject areas that have an emphasis on the following ethno-commercial activities:

  • Trade and Commerce in African traditional societies and cultures from the Munhumutapa period to the emerging of colonial rule.
  • Transition from pre-colonial to colonial rule
  • Post colonialism trade and commerce in Africa and Zimbabwe in particular.

The core modules also infuse topical issues of trade and commerce in a global context.
