On Saturday October 22, 2011 Nkumba University held its 14th Graduation Ceremony at which around 2050 students matriculated in an array of fields at both graduate and post-graduate levels.

The Chancellor, Dr. Gordon Kasibante Babala Wavamuno, presided over the function.  

As is the norm of Nkumba University, prior to the Graduation Ceremony each year, a Commencement Lecture was delivered by Prof. Nshuti P. Manasseh, Senior Economic Advisor in Rwanda, on the topic “Employment Opportunities in the Expanded East Africa Community”.

Prof. Nshuti observed that while governments have the responsibility and duty to create jobs, graduates needed to develop a sense of ambition and confidence as they seek employment beyond national borders.  

Indeed Nkumba University trains students to think critically and act responsibly in an increasingly competitive national and global environment. The University programmes are inclined to nurture the entrepreneurial spirit and impart a practical edge so that graduates may have an appeal in the world of work
