The energy and passion that had built up over twenty (20) years was fully evident on the afternoon of August, 7, 2017 as officials from the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Sports officially handed over the site for the construction of the MUBS and Incubation Hub to the contractors, Techno3.
The site was handed over by Eng. John Omeke the African Development Bank Project
Coordinator in the Ministry of Education and Sports.
MUBS, the beneficiary of this project led by the Deputy Principal Prof. Moses Muhwezi was on site to witness the hand over.
The site hand over was preceded by signing of a contract between the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Sports (MoESTS) and Techno3 Limited in the presence of MUBS Officials at the Ministry head offices.
Prof. Muhwezi appreciated the decision by African Development Bank to construct an Incubation Hub for MUBS. “Being a Business School , entrepreneurship is a pillar in what MUBS does. Entrepreneurship is an area that enables business start ups. The Incubation Hub is aimed at helping people with innovative ideas to develop them into businesses. For that matter you have been spot on,” he commented.
Through the Entrepreneurship Centre, MUBS has trained hundreds of young people giving them the knowledge and skills required for Business startup. This effort was recognized by the Government. Through the Africa Development Bank loan, Government allocated funds for the construction of the Innovation and Incubation Hub at MUBS to support the School’s effort to reduce unemployment among the youth.
MUBS is grateful to the Government of Uganda, Africa Development Bank and all those that have been involved in the preparations of the building for the relevant support.
