Bright Hlongwane (20), a second year Public Administration student from Umlazi’s B section, has captured the attention of many in the academic and business world. On 6 July 2017 MUT academics, some Durban business leaders and Bright’s friends gathered at the Durban’s Olive Convention Centre for his send-off party. On 8 July Bright is jetting off to Stanford University for an Advanced ntrepreneurship Programme.  “The main purpose for going to the US is to acquire knowledge that I will share with my peers back home. I believe if we all share information and knowledge, we all grow equally.”  Such a programme will enable Bright to run his two businesses even better, upon his return on 30 July 2017. Pavinamo Moodliar, the Public Administration and Economics department Head, said Bright was an example everyone had to look up to.
