COURSE DURATION: Three (3) years | Intakes: January and September
The programme philosophy is guided by the need to connect and inspire the Kenyan community, to provide leadership and stewardship and to give hope and faith to the Kenyan society that it can excel in whatever it chooses to do with passion, moral responsibility and a strong sense of patriotism.
This is a flagship programme to help in achieving African development and specifically Kenya’s vision 2030. The intervention of the University of Nairobi as a centre of excellence in training and capacity enhancement through this programme is a significant effort towards the attainment of international Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
The need for the programme was propelled by feedback from the two programmes that needed an opportunity for graduates who wish to advance their studies in the same field. This programme provides positive growth to the university in line with the mission of providing quality university education and training and embodying the aspirations of the Kenyan people and the global community through creation, preservation, integration, transmission and utilization of knowledge.
