Fresh from University with eagerness to venture into the murky waters of the job world, promising entrepreneurs and employees have failed to nature their respective dreams due to compromised character.
Modern enterprises thrive on the ability of the respective business owner to exhibit the right character in line with what your business represents and the ability to demonstrate that you can keep your promise and remain honest. While is true that many people would wish to keep to themselves in matters that concern their respective business, it is also true that you can never be an entrepreneur without involving people in your business.

“As fresh graduates you are moving out with fresh entrepreneurial ideas and need to exhibit the individual character that adds value to what you do. You will seek employment while many of you will start your own projects. It does not matter whether you are managing your own business or employed by other people. The character in you will always determine your progress. Remember to remain focused and learn to respect others through honesty,” Mr Dunstan Kisuule, a renowned Kampala City entrepreneur and chief executive officer of Y-SAVE SACCO has told the Ndejje University 2019 graduating class.

This was during the attendance of the 6th Ndejje University Commencement Lecture held at the MTN Arena Lugogo Cricket Oval in Kampala.
Prof Eriabu Lugujjo, the Vice Chancellor Ndejje University reminded the graduating class to value time and cultivate a culture of team work.

“You will not be the first and last person to graduate from University to mean that others can never attain that respective level of education. Remember to the true values of an individual who has not only attained education but highly values time, has the discipline and the character admired by many people. You also need to be a problem solver and not that person who will always wait for others to lead the way. While at Ndejje University, you have had the opportunity to interact with people who have positively contributed to your success, endeavor to be the ambassador of success outside Ndejje University,” Prof Lugujjo told the 2019 graduating class.
On October 11, 2019 Ndejje University will be holding its 21st graduation ceremony at the main university campus located in Luweero District.
