The future belongs to those who build it.
Mount Kenya University is a private university committed to a broad-based, holistic and inclusive system of education. It has an overall goal of promoting human resource development for society’s progressive good. The university has adopted several international best practices in its core functions, which has enabled its students and faculty win awards, thus stamping its authority as a centre of excellence. At its main campus in Thika town in the outskirts of Kenya’s capital Nairobi, the university is transforming a hitherto industrial town into an educational hub. At the same time, it is widening access to higher education for the larger East African Community through a well-structured network of campuses. The university also offers a wide-range of academic and professional courses, through various flexible modes that include virtual learning. The award-winning university library and the imposing Chancellors Tower at Thika Main Campus make the university unique. The university’s distinct blue and light yellow corporate colours are a byword for academic excellence to many students and potential employees looking for an increasingly competitive, well-trained manpower. An empowered division of student welfare services continuously re-engineers and positions itself to unlock any emerging talents among the students through diversified programmes and career orientations, research, international linkages and talent searches. Put together, these factors have etched Mount Kenya University’s position as the leader in quality higher education provision in the region. Indeed, to borrow the tag-line coined by an alumnus “My University, My pride, My future”- the university continues to help thousands of ambitious, discerning people to scale the heights of education.
