Tracing the academic performances and career development successes of students is a useful tool in determining the relevance of educational and training programmes offered at the university. Successful retail practitioners also serve as role models for prospective students. The development and maintenance of a database of students and alumnae are therefore considered to be a necessity. The retail Chair therefore intends:
- To create a database of retail students at CPUT
- To create a tracking system that will enable the Chair to keep in contact with alumni and trace their progress in industry.
- To request alumnae to regularly update their employment details on the website
- To regularly communicate with students and alumni to keep them abreast of developments
