AFRICAN COUNTRIES share the problems of most sub-Saharan states, including: a
poor, undereducated population, insufficient food production and limited storage
to provide for periodic droughts and famines; diversion of income to finance
costly debt service; government corruption, mismanagement and squandering of
resources; civil war and tribal conflict.
IS BETTER OFF than other countries in some of these respects but, along with
other nearby countries, it has two critical needs: (1) better education for the
people as a whole, and (2) competent training of skilled and principled leaders.
Without good leaders and skilled managers, development efforts will be
haphazard and ineffective; and lacking a well-educated citizenry, the country
will never be in a position to demand good government.
NSTI Founded in 1960
ITS 38-YEAR EXISTENCE, the Nyegezi Institute prepared nearly 2,500 graduates
from Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Zambia, Burundi and
Malawi in the fields of Accountancy, Journalism and Communications, Materials
Management and Health Administration. Nyegezi’s
graduates are doing valuable work--many of them in leadership positions--in
government, private enterprise and church-related institutions throughout East
and Central Africa.
Meeting a Larger Challenge
AUGUSTINE UNIVERSITY of Tanzania began in September 1998 with a Bachelor’s
degree in Mass Communication. This
was followed in 1999 by a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, with
specialisations in Accounting and Finance, Marketing Management, and Human and
Material Resources Management. A
B.S. in Computer Science is planned for 2002.
The Master’s degree in Mass Communication should start in 2004, the
Master’s in Business Administration in 2005, and the B.A. and Master's in
English in 2006. In meeting the
urgent needs of the Lake Victoria region for well-trained office staff, a
Certificate in Secretarial Science will be introduced in the year 2003, with
other degree programs to come later.
NYEGEZI SOCIAL TRAINING INSTITUTE’S Courses (Advanced Diplomas in Accountancy,
Materials Management, and Journalism, and Certificate programmes in Accountancy
and Health Administration) have been incorporated, along with the Bachelor’s
and planned Master’s degrees, into the new University. During the seven years from 1998 to 2004, enrolment is
planned to increase from the present student body of 280 to approximately 930.
The ultimate size of St. Augustine University of Tanzania will likely be
in the range of 2000 students.
Need for Financial Assistance
CAMPUS AT MALIMBE was used by the Tanzania government for the Ministry of
Agriculture Training Institute (MATI) from 1967 to 1995.
A broad, fertile property of 575 acres located in a rural area only 10 km
from the city of Mwanza, it is ideally suited for use as the site of the new
University. It is also within easy
walking distance from the campus of the former Nyegezi Social Training
Institute, from which the University has developed.
