Mumbai based Xavier Institute of Management and Research (XIMR) has set up the “Centre for Africa Studies” in association with Makerere University Business School of Uganda.

The centre was inaugurated by E.M. Barine, deputy high commissioner of the Republic of Kenya, and Waswa Balunywa, principal of Makerere University Business School. The primary objective of the centre is to prepare students for international assignments in Africa.

The centre will initially cater to students of XIMR pursuing their masters programme in management studies and other students interested in career opportunities in Africa. Its facilities at a later stage, will be offered to corporate houses and professionals aspiring to expand their horizons on Africa.

“The XIMR and Markere University Business School will shoulder the responsibility of enhancing the development of the people of emerging nations,” said Fr. Paul Vaz, XIMR’s director general.
