AABS Staff

Mamodise Mailula - Programme Manager

Mamodise joined the Association of African Business Schools in January 2014 and oversees the implementation of AABS events and faculty development workshops amongst other tasks. 

Mamodise is a member of the Golden Key International Honour Society (2017) and the UJenius Club (2014), a Vice Chancellor's recognition programme for high achievers. She graduated cum laude from the University of Johannesburg and with four distinctions from the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal respectively where she pursued her Honours in Community and Development Studies.

Due to her outstanding academic achievement she has been working as Student Supervisor for third year students at UJ in the Community Development and Leadership Internship programme since 2014.

Her passion for development has seen her work on youth development and work readiness programmes with BizSchool, since its inception in 2008 as a delegate and now as a volunteer Course Director.

She also enjoys theatre, photography, travelling and documenting South African culture. 


Tracy Hauptfleisch - Secretariat Manager

Tracy Hauptfleisch joined AABS in March 2016 and is the Secretariat Manager.   Tracy has studied through the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers as well as UNISA where she completed the programme in Business Management.   She comes with a wealth of administrative experience from both the corporate and NGO worlds.  After working for corporate giants such as SABC, Cargo Carriers and Foodcorp she then worked for a number of well-known community organisations in administration, fundraising and programme management: St Anthony's Educate Centre in Boksburg, Radio Veritas, and the Jesuit Institute. 

In this last role she oversaw the doubling in size of the organization and also coordinated, over a number of years, a national touring lecture programme that brought in professors from Europe, the USA and East Africa and linked to several SA universities.  Tracy moved from the corporate world into the NGO field because of her desire for social justice and her passion for Africa, its people and their upliftment.  She first became involved with GIBS through her involvement in the BizSchool programme for disadvantaged post-Matrics; she also pioneered a programme of mentoring and service learning for undergraduate students from Fordham University New York at the University of Pretoria.  Her move to AABS will allow her to see more of the African continent and the people about whom she feels so passionate.
