Profile of the School of Management and Entrepreneurship
The School of Management and Entrepreneurship (hereafter referred to as The School) started in 2009 after being upgraded from the Department of Business Studies which hitherto was under the Faculty of Vocational Studies.

The School is proud to be one of the leading management schools in Uganda. Its special focus on entrepreneurship makes it a unique school in which its graduates are empowered with skills and knowledge to be innovative.
