Semester 11 Academic Year 2015/2016 commenced on January 30, 2016 and teaching begun on February 1, 2016. Teaching will end on May 2, 2016 after thirteen weeks. The first coursework tests for the undergraduate and postgraduate students were held March 5 – 6 and March 12 – 13, 2016. Second coursework tests are scheduled to take place in the 10th and 11th week of the semester. Diploma and Certificate programmes had the first coursework examinations were held March 26 – 27 and Principal, April 2 – 3, 2016. Reports from various faculties indicate academic staff have been teaching and that our students will be ready for their end of semester (and year) examinations between May 9 and May 28, 2016. I take this opportunity to
thank the academic staff, Heads of Department Deans and faculty administrators for the work done so far.
Semester 1 Academic Year 2015/2016 results were released on March, This was after the commencement of the semester. The delay was caused by challenges to do with the newly introduced CEMAS system. These challenges are being addressed by consultants and management to ensure results are released in time. In general, students continue to do well, with an increasing number of student on the Vice Chancellors list. Relatively few students are in the probationary progress category. Deans of Faculty and Heads of Department will continue to talk to various categories of students and counsel them accordingly.
We have had two academic collaborative activities this semester. A group of ten students from the Faculty of Commerce and three faculty staff visited Drake University in the United States in February, 2016. They had various academic engagements with their counterpart students. Drake University students will be visiting Makerere University Business School in May, 2016 for similar academic engagements. In March 2016, a group of 24 graduate students and two professors from the Copenhagen Business School visited the School for three weeks. These partnered with other students from the Faculty of Entrepreneurship and Business Administration on a field course about private sector development and entrepreneurship in Uganda. Management appreciates the two faculties for this initiative.
As the semester comes to the end, I advise all students to clear school dues and finalize with registration requirements. I call upon all academic staff to complete teaching tasks in time to allow students do revision for their end of semester examinations. I take this opportunity to thank all staff for the great work done so far. I wish everyone a smooth remaining part of the semester.
