welcome to School of Management and Entrepreneurship

Kyambogo University has a Vision of being the Centre of Academic Excellence in various fields of study and our Mission is “to advance and to promote knowledge and development of skills in Science, Technology and Education, and in such other fields having regard to quality, equity and transformation of society”.

However, due to the rapidly changing business environment, the job market calls for graduates with up-to-date knowledge, skills and attitudes. It is against this background that the Department decided to review the programme in terms of name, content enrichment, dropping some courses, introduction of more specialisations (options) and adoption of the university wide format of course codes. The name of the course will therefore be: Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA).

The programme shall be housed and run by the Department of Business Administration &Entrepreneurship, School of Management and Entrepreneurship.

Admission to the programme shall be done in accordance with the University and Faculty regulations. A candidate shall be eligible for admission to the programme on meeting any of the following minimum requirements: –

Two principal passes either in Arts or Science subjects at Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education examinations (“A” level) one of which must be in either Mathematics, Economics or Entrepreneurship obtained at the same sitting or its equivalent.
