Aryanyijuka Elias – BIT


I chose Kumi University because of the multicultural environment and team activities which would give real-time exposure to management, decision making and critical thinking. Being a Christian University was a plus for me.

I found the choice of modules and blend of practical and theoretical work particularly fascinating. Also the mix of life modules covering different life fields like Technology, operations, Business, marketing, operations etc, while not being overly focused on any one area in particular.

The mix of theory and practical was most interesting because it ensured that there was no ‘death by PowerPoint’ during lectures and seminars. The models and frameworks taught during the class were applied to real life case studies to understand their implications, which made the theories interesting.

I wanted to be an IT Consultant, but later life turned its direction and ended up a successful Business entrepreneur  of  some famous brands in the country. I founded SMSHOUR ( an online marketing  platform that has grown day by day all over the world, with most of the clients from Europe.

Later found a car importing company – Elco Solutions Ltd that has proven successful.

Due to my love of travel and adventure, it led me to the founding of a tour and travel company that has become a haven of Most tourists. Home To Africa Tours and Travel – , a leading tour operator in Uganda majoring in tailored safaris. We have established offices in Uganda and Rwanda.

In 4-5 years from now, I want to be responsible for establishing large brands and successful businesses. It will help in accelerating my career to the heights that I want it to be at.

Longer term, I want to join a social body or an ideologically matching political party in my country to make a greater impact on the society I live in. I would utilize all my experience to provide improved governance and create new areas of growth and development.


From a humble family , with tuition challenges, I understand how life can change its tunes . I support over 9 Students at secondary Level, 3 Students at University level.

I also found and lead a charity organization , Global ICT Care ( through its programs, we expect to make a significant contribution to the use of ICTs within rural communities in Uganda that is in line with the national vision of “a knowledge-based Uganda where national development and good governance are sustainably enhanced and accelerated by timely and secure access to information and efficient application of ICT.

Long Live Kumi University.
