Message from the Director General

The Uganda Management Institute (UMI) started in 1969. It started a Management Development Institute (MDI), then known as the Institute of Public Administration. It has gone through various transformations to what it is right now. In 2004, UMI was elevated to a degree-granting institution by an act of Parliament. However, UMI remained an MDI. What this means is that it was able to grant degrees while continuing with its mandate of offering short courses leading to the award of certificates and diplomas. With these two mandates, the UMI was restructured into four schools; the School of Business and Management; the School of Public Administration, Public Service and Governance; the School of Distance Learning as well as the School of Management Sciences.
