THE Uganda Management Institute (UMI) has developed an estate master plan for expansion.
James Nkata, the UMI director general, said the master plan details all the future capital developments of the institute.
â€œWe are waiting for the council to approve the estates master plan to start the infrastructural development process,â€ he said.
Nkata explained that the institute plans to expand vertically with a number of structures to accommodate all its activities.
As way of increasing the sources of income for the institute, the new master plan has a three-star hotel to provide accommodation to students. It will also have a conference hall. There will also be two sky-rise structures for lecture rooms and offices.
â€œThis is a huge project that will encompass the whole campus.
â€œIt will take about four years to complete,â€ he added.
Nkata said the increasing demand for the institute has led to lack of space.
â€œWe are forced to take on few students because the institute lacks facilities to accommodate them.â€
He added that the institute had also approved a five-year strategic plan to restructure in order to create three specialised centers.
The centers include a School of Civil Service, Public Administration and Governance, School for productivity and Competitiveness and the Global Distance Learning School.
â€œAll these centres shall need space in order to operate,â€ he said
He however said, the problem still lies in lack of enough capital development funds.
