Turnaround Management at UP

The Department of Business Management at the University of Pretoria has specialised in business turnaround management for over 15 years. The recent inclusion of formal turnaround proceedings has brought about more attention to a highly specialised field of study. Business Rescue provides South African companies with a powerful mechanism to adapt and navigate through the turbulent economic conditions we now face. The novelty of the regime is challenged by a lack of formal training, an issue the university stands at the forefront of addressing.
