Dr Jessica Fraser is a senior lecturer at NMU Business School.  

Fraser’s focus at NMU Business School will be on operations management and logistics. However, her history of academic experience has given her the ability to extend into research on supply chain management integrated with e-business.  

Her expertise on these subjects is further bolstered by industry experience at leading international firms such as Siemens (Pty) Ltd., Procter and Gamble (Pty) Ltd., Department of Trade and industry, and Deloitte and Touché, where she worked in product line management, brand management, economic and industrial policy making, and the launch of e-filing, respectively.

She has taught numerous continuous education programs in Gauteng and Mpumalanga. She was invited to teach in Germany under their international academic exchange program in 2006. 

A renowned speaker, Dr. Fraser has presented at international conferences in Shanghai, China and Sydney, Australia. She has published chapters for books which include Project Management in Perspective and Introduction to Business Management: A Value Chain Approach. She is currently working on a book about her travels in China during parts of 2008 and 2012.
