After five years, Team Institute of Business and Management (TIBM) has become the latest university, after getting a provisional license from the National Council for Higher Education.
According to its incoming vice chancellor, now principal, Prof Lutalo Bbosa, the institution is now mandated to train students up to degree level in business and management disciplines.
Lutalo, a former vice chancellor at Kyambogo University, revealed that they received the license in October 2015.
“We want to empower our students with specialized vocational skills alongside their business training programmes so that they become job creators,” he said.
The licensing of Team University brings the number of recognized private universities in the country to 36. Team started in 2010, after receiving a license to confer certificates and diplomas.
Lutalo says Team University plans to produce well-trained managers and other personnel with skilled business acumen.
Already located in Mengo along Kabak’anjagala road, the institution’s academic registrar, Evelyn Kyokunda, revealed that they would soon set up regional learning centres in Ntungamo, Hoima, Fort Portal, Mbale, Lira, Iganga and Rukungiri districts, to promote quality human resource for the rural areas.
