Business School (MUBS) is one of the nine beneficiary universities of the Higher Education, Science and Technology (HEST) project.

HEST is focusing on building Uganda’s human capital skills development capacity, particularly in education, science and technology, in order to respond to

labour market demands and spur productivity. It aims at improving equitable access, quality and relevance of skills training and research, leading to job creation and self-employment. All these objectives were aligned to Uganda’s National Development Plan (2010/2011- 2014/2015), whose mandate is to make Uganda an industrialized economy by 2025, through the provision of higher-level skills.

Before the commencement of this project, the School had five computer labs, each with a maximum sitting capacity of 35 students. This meant that to have classes divided into shifts, which was hectic.
