  • Multilines and MUBS Launch Partnership to Empower Students and Elevate Ugandan Logistics Industry.
Multilines CEO, Mr. Gerald Mukyenga, and MUBS Principal, Prof. Muhwezi Moses FCILT, solidify a strategic partnership through an MoU signing at MUBS, Nakawa.

On May 23rd, 2024, at Makerere University Business School (MUBS) in Nakawa, Uganda, Multilines International Limited and MUBS signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) formalizing a strategic partnership to empower MUBS students, elevate the Ugandan logistics sector, and propel Multilines’ research and development (R&D) program.

This critical partnership will be achieved through a multifaceted approach, including:

  • Work placement Opportunities: MUBS students and faculty will gain invaluable hands-on experience through work placement internships, graduate trainee opportunities, and open days at Multilines. These will provide them with firsthand exposure to real-world logistics operations to complement their academic studies.
  • Active participation by Industry Experts: Multilines’ logistics specialists will play a part in the curriculum development, share their expertise in guest lectures, and trainings. This will enrich the study experience by incorporating practical industry knowledge alongside theoretical foundations.
  • Mentorship Program: MUBS students will be connected with experienced Multilines professionals who will provide guidance and support on their academic journey. This mentorship program will be instrumental in shaping their career development.
  • Joint Research Projects: Students and faculty will have the opportunity to collaborate with Multilines’ R&D team on industry-relevant research projects. This will allow them to apply their academic knowledge to real-world challenges, fostering innovation within the logistics sector.
  • Knowledge Exchange Programs: Regular knowledge exchange programs will be established to foster continuous learning and collaboration. This will ensure both institutions remain at the forefront of the ever-evolving logistics landscape.

The MOU signing ceremony at MUBS marked a significant step forward in this exciting collaboration. We are confident that this partnership will have a transformative impact on MUBS students, the Ugandan logistics industry, and Multilines’ R&D program. We look forward to working together with MUBS to cultivate the next generation of logistics leaders and shape a brighter future for Uganda’s logistics sector.
