CIU’s new School of Business & Applied Technology is offering an accredited MBA program with the aim of developing a team of graduates with the right skills and character to lead transformation for Uganda and beyond through business.

This program will build on the progress SoBAT has already made in developing a differentiated learning environment through its various business and ICT degree programs, short courses and executive education programs.

Due to the heritage of the university in developing technology skills and health science capability, the emphasis of the MBA will be on technology, with the opportunity to major in health management.

Why

Choose our MBA

Experiential Skills & Character

Our approach is experiential learning with a focus on developing soft skills and character.

International Business Lecturers

A distinguishing feature of the program is faculty and guest lecturers who are business leaders with international and technology management experience, and who will work with students on real business issues.

E-Learning Blend

We work with a blend of classroom and online learning.

Modular 2 Day Week-ends

The course is modular, which means flexibility for students in when to take the various courses that make up the program. Course modules will run over a full Friday and Saturday, once every two weeks. In between classroom sessions, students will engage online with webinars, discussion sessions and assignments.

Sector Focused

In their second year projects, students will be expected to specialise and gain practical experience in one or more of our core industry sectors: Health, ICT, Agri-business & food processing, Tourism, and Energy & Oil
