BY PHILIMON BADAGAWA

Education pays and books don’t lie. And if this is the case, then students of Makerere University Business School {MUBS} have a reason to smile. A thirteen billion library structure was recently commissioned at MUBS by the President of Uganda, Y.K Museveni.

The Library is air conditioned and if students sweat while reading from it, it will not be because of the heat but their failure to understand business statistics. The building creates a good eye impression of its bluish glasses and the attractive design. The structure can accommodate one thousand students at once unlike the old one which had a capacity of only one hundred. MUBS’ new library now becomes the second largest in Uganda after the one at Makerere University. The library has a provision for E-books though the principal,Prof.Wasswa Balunya says it needs more funding to be fully equipped with modern computers and internet.

He thanked the government for the eight billions offered towards the completion of the library but not satisfied with the current status of MUBS. Balunya is requesting the president to let MUBS be upgraded to a degree warding institution instead of operating under Makerere University. However, the president promised to study their request and advised them to introduce other new courses that are on demand. “Start faculties that will produce graduates with demanded skills on the market, think of science teachers, don’t teach students skills that are not demanded”, H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni,the president of Uganda suggested to the administration of MUBS.

The function was attended by the minister of education and sports,Hon.Judith Alupo,Vice chancellor of Makerere University, Prof.Byaramureba, the university council of MUBS led by their chairman, Collin Ssentogo and students.
