The Center of Excellence

Tumusiime Mutebile Foundation Carrying forward the Vision of the Tumusiime Mutebile Center of Excellence

In the wake of the late Prof. Emmanuel Tumusiime Mutebile, the visionary leader and former governor of the Bank of Uganda, The Tumusiime Mutebile Foundation is steadfastly committed to carrying forward his remarkable vision for the Makerere University Private Sector Forum Tumusiime Mutebile Centre of Excellence.

A Beacon of Hope for Economic Advancement

The Makerere University Private Sector Forum Tumusiime Mutebile Centre of Excellence has emerged as a beacon of hope for Uganda’s economic development. It represents a collaborative effort between the private sector, academics, and policy makers, with a shared goal of nurturing critical human skills essential for driving economic growth.
Professor Tumusiime Mutebile envisioned this center as a hub for providing transformative and alternative solutions that fuel private sector growth and employment generation in Uganda. His dedication to the cause was unwavering, and he believed in the power of homegrown solutions to address the unique challenges facing African economies.
Prof. Mutebile articulated a profound commitment to the philosophy of “African solutions for African problems.” This commitment underpins our efforts to develop African economies and propel them towards middle-income status. It is a commitment that remains as strong and resolute as ever, even in his absence.
In Prof. Mutebile’s own words, “Let us work together to build a vibrant and sustainable private sector, increase choices and opportunity for income, employment, and wealth.” His vision was rooted in the belief that a thriving private sector is the engine of economic advancement and that it holds the key to a prosperous future for Uganda.
