Program Description

Executive MBA Oil and Gas (online)

Virtual University of Uganda

The demand for competent and creative business leaders and managers who will take business practice to the next level in the African context is undisputed today given the situation and realities on the ground. Transforming existing business practices will not happen overnight but will happen when sufficient numbers of business professionals adhere to best business practices. African business practices 3.0 will not only make business practices more efficient in terms of human and financial resources but will also have a knock-on effect in terms of the region's social and economic development. The programme builds on existing skills to ensure that resulting practices are taken to the next level. All courses in the programme are built to ensure that local realities are taken into account while at the same time looking to international best practices to bring business realities and practices in the region into line with international standards and practices. The overall aim of the programme is to develop a cadre of dynamic, creative, and highly-trained business professionals who have the knowledge and skills necessary to bring about change in existing business practices in the East Africa region.
