KAMPALA —The Makerere University Business School Career & Skills Development Centre, will on Tuesday, June 29 host Mr. Kwame Rugunda, a member of the World Economic Forum to speak to the students community and stakeholders.
Mr. Rugunda, a reknown Ugandan IT entrepreneur will speak about the labour disruptions and future of work amid the after-effects of the Covid-19 pandemic across all sectors in the country and globally.
The session, in which Principal Prof. Waswa Balunywa will give a key note adress will be relayed via zoom.
According to the MUBS Career & Skills Development Centre, for learners to find employment after graduation, it takes deliberate preparation and planning.
“Students need hands-on exposure to jobs, internships and volunteering opportunities,” says Maureen Tweyongyere, the director.
Ms. Tweyongyere says that’s why MUBS runs an Annual Employer- Employee Exchange Programme to link students to the prospective employers.
“Due to the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is difficult to have physical engagement but we have made it possible to continue with online engagement. Different employers are invited on a weekly basis to share with us on what it takes to join the them,” Ms Tweyongyere says.
