The schools are headed by Deans and each has departments which run the different academic programmes. The immediate contact person to participants for each of the programmes is the Course Manager. At UMI we operate as a team and participants can be assisted at any level. However, the following officers are of particular interest to participants.
The Uganda Management Institute commonly referred to as UMI is located on plots 44 - 52 Jinja Road – about 2.5 km from the City Centre just before Jinja Road Police Station.
Jinja Road has two lanes leading to the City Centre and one lane for outgoing traffic. You are advised to be very careful when crossing the lanes because there have been a number of fatal accidents in the recent past. You have to be sure which direction the traffic is flowing before crossing any of the lanes.
UMI is mostly a secure place but we recommend vigilance and information sharing where you detect problems. Valuables should never be left unattended.
Always observe academic discipline especially by regular attendance and timely submission of assignments. We keep a register of attendance in compliance with Academic Regulations.
