Master of Business Administration (MBA)

The MBA at IHSU is designed to produce a graduate fit-for purpose, who is responsive to the needs and challenges of the different sectors in the economy.  The goal of the program is to immerse the practitioner in training in the reality of today’s business context and to prepare graduates to learn how to adapt to a business world of growing complexity and demand.    The program seeks to offer the development of business skills, applicable to a local business context aimed at achieving a social development agenda which increases wealth and welfare in Uganda, building on current business school and industry best practices, as well as the latest technological capabilities.  An extensive consultative process with industry partners was undertaken during program design to ensure relevance of the program content.

The MBA degree will offer a greater emphasis than the BBA on practical experience.  MBA students will need to have had at least three years’ work experience in some kind of business before starting the MBA, and this will ensure that the learning process is even more grounded in shared practical experience.  There will also be a practical focus on a particular industry sector, which will form the major for the MBA.  This may or may not be the sector which the student already has experience in, as we recognise some may want the MBA to be a catalyst for moving into a new sector.  The practical sector experience will be achieved through a thesis focused on the sector of specialisation, together with an internship if the student does not already have employment in that sector.

    1. To deliver a holistic program that addresses the short-falls in the current programs and graduates 250 Exec MBA students with industry-specific focus and strong practical management capabilities by June 2022.
