Kyambogo University, with the vision to be a Centre of Academic and Professional Excellence, aims at providing sustained high academic and professional training in the fields of Education, Business, and Management, Communication, entrepreneurship and Technology. The University is not only cognizant of the need for manpower training and development in these fields but also of the high demand for training by the school leavers and underemployed persons. It is for these reasons that the School of Management and Entrepreneurship reviewed the above degree programme. The programme is housed in the Department of Management Science, leading to the award of a Bachelor of Management Science.
With globalisation, the survival of organisations largely depends on the existence of manpower with a high level of managerial skills, creativity and innovation.
Such manpower would be required to carry out innovations that offer competitive advantage to the organisation. Many projects have to be undertaken and continue designing and redesigning has to be carried out to ensure that the projects are viable and can be sustained. The globalization and integration into the East Africa community raise the accelerated need for trained personnel possessing the required knowledge and skills; to manage and provide timely accountabilities that give the organisation a competitive edge. With modernisation, there exists a great challenge of producing graduates who possess Information and Communication Technology (ICT) competencies for tapping global opportunities and ability to communicate effectively. The programme is therefore envisaged to produce empowered manpower that is functionally effective in all business environment situations.
The programme shall target the students with ‘A’ Level Certificates, and or persons who have passed university Mature Age Entrance Examination and Diploma holders.
