Why chose a SoBAT BBA?

  1. Partnering with business in real time

We partner to ensure the skills we are developing are those which will help employees, managers and entrepreneurs to be more productive and effective in a global market. Our innovative approach means course participants will achieve this improvement, and be rewarded for it, during the learning process, not after it

  1. Developing character

At the heart of our approach, we believe character is the key to a prosperous life, and can be learned and developed. We aim to develop qualities such as: integrity, discipline, dependability, empathy, courage and creativity.

  1. Focus on export

Our mission to help Uganda prosper means we are keen to support businesses which generate foreign income, whether in health technology (our heartland), value-add agriculture, outsourced business or IT services, or tourism

  1. Experiential learning

We believe that we learn best by listening to ideas, applying learning and reflecting on the results; and by repeating this cycle continuously. Our approach is designed to facilitate this process of learning in an optimally efficient way.

  1. Working with business and global faculty

Our learning facilitators have both business management and global experience, as we aim to bring best available experience and expertise into the learning process.

  1. Working with latest learning technology

We combine physical with online virtual teaching modes to achieve optimal efficiency in the learning process

Vertical sector major options

  1. Health Management & Technology *
  2. Agri-business and Food Processing
  3. ICT and Business Services
  4. Tourism
  5. Energy & Oil

*You would start with the standard BBA core courses, but have the option of taking other Health Management courses, which are taught by the Health faculty, which would count towards your BBA degree, and be recognised as a Major in Health Management
