The MUBS graduation ceremony today clearly showed how impressive and what a big deal it is to earn a college degree in Uganda, just as it is in America. In America, we go to school to get better jobs. However, while talking to the MUBS students about what life after graduation brought, many said that they would have to move away to find jobs, as it is very difficult to find jobs of their education level in Uganda. My project for this trip is focusing on higher education in Uganda and the positive effects on the economy. The lack of jobs for college educated citizens however does lessen the importance of going to college and getting a higher education to strengthen and better their economy.
