Master of Business Administration

Overview

The University of Nairobi School of Business is one founding members of Association of African Business Schools(AABS), a Pan African body that seeks “promote excellence in business and management education in Africa by supporting graduate business schools through capacity building, collaboration and quality improvement.”  The MBA programme acts as a terminal degree for those interested in careers in the corporate world, but also as a preparatory course for those aspiring to pursue doctorates and pursue  careers in research and teaching in business and management.

The University of Nairobi MBA also aims at training the critical manpower required towards achieving Kenya’s Vision 2030 and other development objectives, and to making East Africa a vibrant region ready to face a globalizing world characterized by constant change and new demands. The quality of our graduates remains undisputed and will be zealously guarded through strict quality control and benchmarking with the world’s best.
