With globalisation, the survival of organisations largely depends on existence of manpower with 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 continuous designing and redesigning has to be carried out to ensure that the projects are viable and can be sustained. The globalization and integration into East Africa community, raises 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.
