Nkumba University (NU) is a private university in Entebbe, Uganda. It was established in 1994 as part of a group of schools and colleges which originally grew from a kindergarten set up in 1951. The University is dedicated to the promotion of excellence in applied business education.

On July 29, 1951 at 9.00AM, Ssalongo Kintu a local merchant, invited two of his best friends to a meeting: Charles Kisitu-Ffulu, the then Parish Chief of Nkumba, and Zefania Mpanga, a civil servant who resided in the area. Their meeting led to the establishment of a kindergarten for their infants. The school opened on February 6, 1952 with twelve (12) pupils at Ffulu’s home. Within two years the population had grown to over 150 pupils.

The kindergarten grew into a primary (elementary) school. Over the years, the school grew into a junior secondary (middle) school and a senior secondary (high) school. In 1969, the school became a vocational school. In 1974 the name of the school was changed to Nkumba College of Commerce and Advanced Studies. Finally in 1994, the Board of Trustees were approved by the Ministry of Education to transform the College into a University. This marked the beginning of Nkumba University. On 16th February 2007 Nkumba University was granted a Charter by the President of Uganda upon the recommendation of the National Council for Higher Education as provided in the Universities and Other Tertiary Institutions Act 2001.
