PostGraduate Diploma in Urban Governance and Management (DUGM)

Kampala, Mbarara, Gulu and Mbale


The form and manner in which public sector organizations are managed; using bureaucratic public sector management approaches does not meet the requirement for managing urban areas. The majority of urban settlers in Uganda are either business people or workers of various professions and other trades which require a unique way of providing them public goods and services they require. The time and cost of providing these goods and services and quality in which they require them means developing governance and management skills that enable this to be achieved.

It’s upon this background that this programme, DUGM is developed by UMI to provide necessary training for the urban governors and managers, in areas of; Finance Management for Urban Governance, Urban Environment Management, Urban Housing, Settlement, Urban Poverty Eradication, Urban Development Policy Analysis, E-governance and Urban Development Strategies and Governance.
