Kigali Institute of Management (KIM) will, this week, hold its maiden graduation ceremony.
The institute first obtained temporary accreditation from the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) in 2006 but it was not until May this year that it received full accreditation.
The graduation ceremony slated for September 23 will see 289 students awarded a Bachelors degree in Business Management (BBM).
Speaking to The New Times, the institute`s Vice Rector Academics, Ronald Alfred Olar, said the graduates include all students who had completed studies since 2009.
Out of the 289 graduates, 165 are female. Six students will be awarded First Class Honours, four of whom are female.
KIM was established in 2003 under the name International College of Accounting and Management with the aim of producing professional accountants.
In 2005, the institute acquired its current name to train business management skills.
