While IHSU was created out of the need for more professionalism in health care, we have observed other needs in Uganda that drive our growth strategy. Uganda has a very high Total Entrepreneurial Activity Rate of 35.5%, which indicates the percentage of its growing population that have started a business venture of some kind. The Entrepreneurial Intentions rate of 60% demonstrates an even larger appetite for entrepreneurship in the population if given the tools to do so (GEM, 2017).
Whether this is driven by opportunity or necessity, it is clear from this that there is a great appetite for entrepreneurship. However many of these businesses fail or stagnate at a low level of revenue generation. There is a lack of appropriate business skills, and as employers we notice that existing business courses are not preparing individuals for the workplace. These observations have led us to diversify our course offerings. We are offering courses in Business administration, Practical application of ICTs and Teacher training under the new School of Business and Applied Technology (SoBAT).
