Dr. Matthew  Theuri -  Dean School of Business, Management & Economics

 

Our main campus is located approximately 6 km from Nyeri along the Nyeri - Mweiga highway, Nyeri with the other two campuses located in Nyeri Town and Nairobi City.


Programmes have been developed over the years to meet the needs of a wide range of people, organisations and industry sectors. Now the scope of business programmes covers manufacturing, leadership, teamwork, workplace efficiency, computing, civil construction, distribution, general trades and it is continuing to expand!

Engagement
At the Dedan Kimathi University of Technology School of Business,  Management & Economics we pride ourselves in offering unique, practical, and rewarding programs to all of our students. Our aim is for everyone who passes through our doors to become engaged: engaged with their education; engaged with their research; and engaged with the community. From this comes a passion for business, a respect for ethics and best practices, and a diverse set of skills to help launch your career.


Opportunities
In our classrooms, students have the ability to study all areas of business. While this is important, we know there’s more to learning about business than hitting the books. That’s why we offer a co-op work placement program, international exchanges, study tours, unique research opportunities, executives-in-residence, and a global network of alumni and industry contacts who support the School. These opportunities, and the sheer number of them, set us apart from other business schools, and will set you apart from other graduates.


Diverse Programs
The Dedan Kimathi University of Technology School of Business offers undergraduate, graduate (MBA and PhD), and Executive Education programs, all of which have multiple options and specializations to choose from. Whether you’re new to university and are interested in studying business, or you’re an executive looking to sharpen your skills, the Dedan Kimathi University  School of Business, Management & Economics can help you achieve your best.
