She says instead of turning the institution into a degree-awarding institution as earlier approved by cabinet, it would be better to convert it into a fully-fledged university.

Cabinet had proposed ‘Metropolitan Universal Business School ‘as the new name for the institution, that would help maintain the acronym MUBS.

The minister also revealed that MUBS had earlier requested to be granted the status of a degree awarding institution, just like Uganda Management Institute (UMI), only to make a U-turn again, demanding a university status.

However, the minister has vowed to proceed with the process of making MUBS a degree awarding institution, as she awaits the response from the president.

In the meantime, MUBS remains affiliated to Makerere University.

The institution was established by Makerere University order 1997, as a constituent college of Uganda’s oldest public university.

The School was created from a merger between the then Makerere University faculty of commerce and the then national college of business studies (NCBS).

The actual merger took place in January 1998.
