Musawenkosi Saurombe

The Zimbabwean scholar graduated with a PhD in Industrial Psychology from South Africa’s North-West University (NWU) in 2017 when she was 23. She nailed her PhD thesis, which explored the “management perspectives talent value propositions for academic staff members in higher education.” Saurombe was born in Zimbabwe but grew up in neighbouring Botswana. She skipped a grade in elementary school and entered the university at the age of 16, moving to South Africa to pursue a Bachelor’s degree at North-West University.

By 19, Saurombe completed her first degree, advancing immediately to her post-graduate studies and receiving a Master’s degree with distinction at the age of 21. Notwithstanding her busy schedule as a teacher and researcher, Saurombe finds time for community service, mentoring young people, especially girls, to set their sights on the future and believe that they can be absolutely anything they want to be.
