The Jinja Town Clerk has lauded Makerere University Business School for contributing towards the economic restoration and development of Jinja Municipality in the last eight years. Mr. Francis Byabagambi also commended MUBS for marketing Jinja town both at local and international scenes by hosting its 22nd Annual International Management Conference in Jinja.
He said MUBS’ campuses at YMCA and Narambayi Primary School have contributed to economic development in Jinja, through offering employment opportunities and purchasing of goods and services. The campuses have also attracted a number of businesses and highly skilled people. Educating young people in the Municipality therefore giving us right graduates for the needs of the labour market is
another way MUBS is contributing to economic development in Jinja. He noted that for decades, Jinja had lost its glory as an industrial centre but he is optimistic about the economic rebirth of Jinja with Institutions like MUBS establishing themselves firmly in the area.
