Speaking to the publication after the ceremony the Econet leader gushed about his latest achievement and said:
I am grateful to my doctorate supervisors for their guidance, and of course to my family, in particular my wife, for her unwavering support over the years. Lastly, but not least, I want to acknowledge the support and goodwill I always receive from my work colleagues and board, and in particular the encouragement and inspiration I have enjoyed over the years and during the course of my studies, from my group chairman and founder of Econet, Mr Strive Masiyiwa, who in many ways is my role model in leadership.
Mboweni joined Econet in 1996 and assumed the CEO position in 2002.
