Graduate unemployment in Uganda: socioeconomic factors exonerating university training

Ssempebwa, Jude

Abstract:
University training in Uganda is under attack, albeit rhetorically, for graduate unemployment.  Thus, it has been a scapegoat for policy inaction and divestiture of accountability by employment policy persons.  A recent study, ‘Factors influencing graduate employability in Uganda’, however, finds that socioeconomic factors, rather than university training, are blamable for the anomaly and recommends macro-economic reforms purposed to increase the availability of paid employment opportunities and feasibility and profitability of graduate selfemployment.
