Post Graduate Degree
The Institute began training operations in 1968 under the name Uganda Institute of Public Administration. The official opening of the Institute was held on October 7, 1969. In the initial years the Institute was mandated to conduct intensive in-service training to quickly develop a cadre of Africans to assume higher responsibilities consequent upon the attainment of independence in 1962.
In the early 1970s, the Institute became affiliated with Makerere University and it offered postgraduate diplomas in Public Administration as well as Business Management. The postgraduate diploma in Human Resource Management was introduced in the mid 1980s.
Prior to 1992, the Institute of Public Administration operated as a department of the Ministry of Public Service. This status changed with the enactment of the Uganda Management Institute Statute of 1992. The Statute conferred an agency status to the Institute with a great degree of autonomy under a Governing Board.
The programs of the Institute were expanded and student intake increased. By 1999 the Institute was offering a Masters Degree in Management Studies besides six postgraduate diplomas, certificate courses and short courses.
