Degree awarding reality NOT a myth...

The most recently concluded graduation at Buwambo Campus in Gayaza was simply a message across indicating that the dream is to be realized soon rather than later.

New proposed degree programs...

As we prepare to become a degree awarding institution in the nearby future, a host of new proposed degree programs will be announced here as soon as they are confirmed, hopefully by July-2014. NOTE: Please note that Buwambo campus in Gayaza comes as an extension to YMCA Kampala Main branch. This means that Buwambo campus is only intended to provide more space to accommodate the ever growing number of students in different programs. We therefore plan to have degrees offered in both campuses. The following are the proposed degree programs;

1. Bachelors of Information Technology - BIT
2. Bachelors of Computer science - BCS
3. Bachelors of Business Administration - BBA
4. Bachelors of Secretarial and Administrative studies - BSAS
5. Bachelors of Industrial Art & Design - BIAD
