Introduction View Details
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme of the University of Nairobi seeks to equip participants with skills, techniques and understanding required for successful managerial careers in the public and private sectors of the economy. The UoN MBA programme strength is founded on its long history since 1972, experienced lecturers with a wide variety of backgrounds, and diversity in the student body in terms of backgrounds and nationalities. Participants are drawn from the Eastern African region and beyond. Our proximity to the vibrant Nairobi metropolis and central location gives us an important competitive edge regionally. The course is distinguished by its rigor and variety, offering one of the highest numbers of specialization options in the region. In its most recent revision, we benchmarked against top universities worldwide in North America, Europe, South Africa and the Far East.

Our programme caters to those with prior business training as well as those whose professional backgrounds are in other disciplines. Worldwide, professionals in areas such as engineering and medicine emphasize technical expertise in their undergraduate studies, but in time upward mobility demands knowledge of general management that includes organization structures, marketing, finance, operations, human resources, information systems and other emerging areas. The University of Nairobi MBA course complements technical knowledge with simulated managerial experiences and knowledge to make them effective managers in a dynamic organizational environment. The programme is therefore also a conversion course that aspires to make managers out of practitioners in different professional areas. Teaching goes beyond theoretical concepts to practical knowledge based on case studies and real life experiences; hence, shared experiences by the diverse student body are an integral part of MBA programme. The MBA may therefore act as a terminal degree for those interested in careers in the corporate world, or as a preparatory course for those aspiring to pursue doctorates for careers in research and teaching in business and management.

The UoN MBA therefore aims at training the critical manpower required towards achieving Kenya
