Alfred Mercier once said that “What we learn with pleasure we never forget” and so the school seeks to ensure our students enjoy their stay and study at MKU. In a developing country like Kenya where everyone is seeking to play a role not only national but also personal development, transformational education is an important catalyst in pursuit of this end. However we have to do this in the most enjoyable and ethical way. This resonates well with Jim Rohn quote that “Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins”.
The goal of the School of Business and Economics (SBE) is to create a conducive learning ecosystem that seek the interface of academics, researchers, entrepreneurs and industry practitioners to engage in a mutually complementary manner that will inform business education that support economic growth and development in the region. In line with Mount Kenya University’s (MKU) continuing efforts to build a knowledge-based economy and proactively respond to the emerging society needs, the school offers academic programs that are rigorous, demanding, and practical and meets national & international standards. SBE programs are organized around three departments namely; department of Management, department of Accounting & Finance and department of Economics.
In order to deliver on our mandate, we combine affordability, accessibility and research informed pedagogy to offer one of the best values in higher education. In addition to its focus on research, SBE also has close ties with the domestic and international associations and collaborations like the Association of African Business Schools (AABS) Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), Makerere University Business School (MUBS) among others. Once again you are welcome at the Premier Business School and let all join together in this journey of building our great nation for the foundation of every state is the education of its youth. I conclude with the quote from Malala Yousafzai, who said that “There are many problems, but I think there is a solution to all these problems; it’s just one, and it’s education”.
benvenuto a bordo- welcome on board.
