Kyambogo University is desirous of providing sustained high academic and professional training in the fields of Education, Business, Management, Communication and Technology. The University is not only cognisant of the need for manpower training and development in these fields but also of the high demand for further training by the graduates who may be in positions of high authority with regard to the management of organisations and more specifically the supply chain management and innovations. The MOP programme will prepare students to assume responsibility of the effective organization and public policy management in their career paths in organisations.
The programme will ensure quality products through moulding of students’ attitudes by instilling the right attitudes in them, equipping them with the best human resource practice and by equipping them with the ability to interpret legal regulation of administrative processes.
It is for these reasons that the Department of Business Studies proposes to introduce the above Post Graduate Programme. The programme leading to the award of a Master of Science in Organization and Public Sector Management(MOP) shall be housed and run by the Department of Business Administration and Entrepreneurship.

Work organizations account for a large part of our time and energy, with formal and informal relationships. Everyone in a workplace is affected by organisations, policies and management in many of the daily activities and changes.
