The School of Finance and Banking (SFB) yesterday held its 8th graduation ceremony in which 563 students were awarded Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Procurement and Business Administration.
Speaking at the occasion, the Director of Quality Assurance  in the Ministry of Education, Abdallah Baguma urged the graduates to be good ambassadors of the institution and higher education as a whole, by exhibiting professionalism.
“This is the time to fully utilise the knowledge you have acquired to bring about transformation because what you have acquired from is key to success,” he said.
He challenged the new graduates to perform their duties with competence to enable the country attain its development aspirations.
The Chairperson of the Board of Directors of SFB, Dr. Diane Karusisi, said students passing out of the country’s universities should be innovative.
“You should use all your efforts to compete on the job market using the skills learnt from here, and turn the challenges into opportunities in order not to lag behind ” she said.
Students who graduated with Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) were 520, Masters in Business Administration (MBA) 23 and Masters in Public Procurement (MPP) 20.
Alice Kambayire, a graduate of MBA said: “I am overwhelmed with joy because all the efforts I put in my studies have eventually paid off.”
“Students should be job creators instead of job seekers and they should not stop here because the more you continue the easier to get a job after acquiring various skills and knowledge.”
