MUBS students to access free internet

MUBS announced on Thursday that they had reached an agreement with Eduroam to provide free wifi all over campus.

Its all happiness and joy at Makerere University Business School (MUBS) in Nakawa after the administration announced the students can now have free internet access throughout the campus.

The University announced on Thursday that they had reached an agreement with Eduroam to provide free wifi all over campus.

Eduroam stands for Education roaming and is an international Wifi internet access roaming service for users in research, higher education.

Eduroam has before been tried in other institutions of higher learning such as UCU, KYU among others and it has registered massive success.

Some of the students we spoke to remain positive for the development and believe this will further help them in their studies.

“Who couldn’t be happy for a free stable internet, it’s really something I am looking up to for better of my grades” a one Charles told this website.

About MUBS

MUBS was established in the 1960s as the National College of Business Studies (NCBS). It offered business and management diplomas as well as professional training in business. At that time, the college offered diplomas, the main ones being the Uganda Diploma in Business Studies and the Higher Diploma in Marketing.[1]

In 1997, the Faculty of Commerce at Makerere University was merged with NCBS, thereby creating MUBS, a constituent college of Makerere University. The staff and students of both institutions were brought together at the 45 acres (18 ha) campus at Nakawa, approximately 5.5 kilometers (3.4 mi), east of CBD.

In 2001, due to changes in the laws of Uganda, MUBS transformed from a constituent college of Makerere University to a “public tertiary institution” affiliated with Makerere University. However, this arrangement did not work well, resulting in Makerere introducing competing duplicate courses at the main campus, while MUBS started to agitate for complete autonomy. Finally, in 2012, the autonomy sought by MUBS was granted by the Uganda Ministry of Education and Sports.
