Investment minister Hon Anite Evelyn has joined Harvard Business School for another academic document after acquiring a masters degree from Tufts university.
She announced on her social media while dismissing reports saying she was in Mauritius to lobby for Uganda Telecom.
“I am currently concluding my Senior Executive Programme at Harvard Business School [HBS],” she said.
Harvard has a Senior Executive Programme for Africa, the reason media reports cited Anite in the west African nation.
Harvard says African countries face a distinct set of social, economic, and political conditions that create unique business challenges—along with exciting opportunities.
To gain a competitive advantage, businesses across the continent need exceptional, confident leaders.
“This program prepares you to expand your leadership skills as well as your knowledge of local, regional, and global markets. By improving your ability to design and execute winning strategies, deliver innovative offerings, nurture high-performance teams, and navigate rapid change, you will be ready to help your company drive growth in Africa’s dynamic markets.”
HBS offers this program in partnership with the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) of the University of Pretoria in South Africa.
Featuring a module in Mauritius, an independent work module, and a module on the HBS campus, this program enables rapidly growing organizations to drive business momentum through more effective leadership.
By gaining deeper insight into the best practices of successful business leaders, you will be better equipped to lead effectively and help your organization achieve ambitious goals in local markets, regional markets, and across Africa.
“I will be back in town soon to enforce Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s directive to #AuditUtl,” Anite announced.
The minister has been in the news battling deputy Attorney General Mwesigwa Rukutana, the godfather of Uganda Telecom Limited administrator Bemanya Twebaze and Secretary to the Treasury Keith Muhakanizi.
Anite in July 2018 got leave of office to travel to America where she pursued a Master’s Degree.
In July 2019, Anite finally graduated with a Masters Degree in International Law and Diplomacy from the US based university.
