Prof. Brain Sliverman from the University of Toronto Canada was a guest speaker at the 23rd AIMC Doctoral Symposium in Mbarara.
He urged Ugandan universities to partner with industries to be able to produce graduates who have the skills and competencies that local employers and communities need to solve problems in society.
He said working with industries is vital in the transformation of tertiary institutions to produce employable graduates. “It will provide practical learning to students hence addressing the current performance gap among the graduates”, he said.
