Administrator To Academia Encourages Women To Break The Bias And Succeed

If ever anyone epitomized what the results of hard work and dedication can result in, it is Hlengiwe Carol Mazibuko. 

She went to school in Ladysmith and despite a lack of resources and opportunity, she has worked relentlessly to establish herself as an academic.

She matriculated from Emhlwaneni High School and thereafter moved to Durban to complete her Bachelor of Administration at University of KwaZulu Natal. After completing her degree, she started working at UKZN as an administrator. 

Her passion for academia saw her register immediately for her BCom Honours in Supply Chain Management from UKZN. At the end of that, one would have imagined she would have been content. 

Being the driven individual she is, she did not relent but pursued further academic development by completing her four-year Master’s in Supply Chain Management.

“I never wanted to be mediocre and that is why I was determined to continue studying. There is a saying, ‘The collapse of education is the collapse of a nation.’ I personally wanted to contribute to educating and developing leaders so I could leave my country stronger and better.

“One of my notable academic achievements is my presentation to the National Research Conference on Business Management and Sustainable Development held in Durban in 2017. My paper was titled: Supply Chain Management: Literature Review,” said Mazibuko.

Carol has worked her way from being an entry level administrator to today being an academic lecturer at Regent Business School where she impacts the lives of her students every day. 

“Supply Chain is what keeps the wheels of our economy turning. The Regent Business School Supply Chain degrees empower graduates to rethink, disrupt and innovate in an ever-evolving space. 

“I am so proud to be a part of this. As we celebrate Women’s Month, I want to encourage women to break the bias that one can only succeed if we come from advantaged backgrounds. Sacrifice and hard work will yield the results you can personally be most proud of”, said Mazibuko.
