Welcome to the Faculty of Commerce, Law and Management

It is with great pleasure that we welcome all new students to Wits’ Faculty of Commerce, Law, and Management, commonly known as CLM. Situated in the heart of the most powerful economic hub on the African continent, CLM connects its students and staff to the most dynamic social agents in the country.

The CLM Faculty offers exciting and challenging study programmes to address the economic, legal, and social challenges facing our world today. Our students have the opportunity to learn about the technical skills driving corporate finance and accountancy, tackle human rights challenges head-on, and study complex developments in the economy. We are excited to share in your higher education journey and look forward to getting to know you better over the course of the next few years.
