Makerere University Business School (MUBS) is one of the best ranked Business School in Africa. The university has over the past four consecutive years produced the overall best student at the Makerere University Graduation.
Over the past five years, not only have the education standards improved, but also improvements on infrastructure and new buildings in the institution have been set up to give the students a better learning environment.
Prof. Wasswa Balunywa’s new developments in the School have given the MUBS community reason to smile.
Construction of around and completion of the main library
The construction work to complete the MUBS main Library resumed in August 2016. The work started with constructing a metal grill around the main library and construction of concrete slabs for reading benches in library gardens. The other part of the library known as the Library Tower is now also complete and will facilitate lectures for the Masters students.
Faculty of Computing and Informatics Building
The African Development Bank through the Ministry of Education and Sports availed funds for the construction of the Faculty of computing and Informatics at Makerere University Business School. The construction worked kicked off on June, 29, 2015 upon site possession by Ambitious construction Company and was completed on June 29, 2016. The building has ample space to host seminars and conferences.
Construction of the MUBS Main Gate and Fence
The School management commenced on plans to relocate and redevelop the Institutions’ Main Gate to give MUBS a new face uplift and also to reduce traffic congestion at the Campus during peak hours. The main gate is relocated 30 metres into the School from its current position and it is redeveloped into a two-lane to reduce traffic congestion.
This is one of the ongoing constructions in the school this year. All historical artifacts of the main gate such as the emblem will be preserved. It is believed the new renovation, which will include the installation of lights will help to combat crime around the campus, which tends to be a big threat within the institution. The construction work has also involved a much improved block fence, roads and pathways within the School.
Construction of St. James’ MUBS Chapel
MUBS started the construction of the church since May 2018. The Chapel has a seating capacity of 1,200 people. The overall construction work cost almost Ugx.340M. The development is a way of promoting God’s work in the School plus the financial support it renders to set up of permanent places of worship for the different religious sects in the MUBS community.
New Office Block (Formerly known as Block 1)
MUBS completed the construction of the New Office Block that was formerly known as Block 1. It has been reconstructed and the offices that will be housed are; Human Resource Directorate, Bursar’s Office, Procurement and Disposal Unit, Internal Auditor, Strategy and project’s office.
