Welcome note from the Dean

I take this opportunity to welcome you to the School of Business and Economics of South Eastern Kenya University. The vision of the school is to be “A Centre of Academic Excellence in Teaching, Research and innovation in all areas of Business and Economics”. The mission of the school is “To provide all round quality education in areas of Business and Economics through teaching, research, innovation and Entrepreneurship”. This is arguably one of the largest schools in the university with a student population of over 2000 students and full-time teaching faculty of 30. We are a young dynamic school where we value close interaction and mentorship of our students to help them realize their aspirations.

The school is currently in the middle of preparing a five year strategic plan where it envisions having over 20 academic programs both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels by the year 2017. Some of the upcoming programs cover areas like real estate management and housing administration, cooperative management, entrepreneurship and innovation management, financial services management among others. The student
numbers across the 20 academic programs is projected to grow to over 7000 by the year 2020 and the teaching faculty will grow to over 100 full-time staff members.
The school is currently organized into three academic departments, namely the department of Management Science, Department of Business and Entrepreneurship and the Department of Economics. More departments will be created in due course are the school increases the menu of academic programs on offer.
We are basically on a journey to excellence.  We envision our-self being the most preferred business school both by employers and students in Kenya in due course. We do not have the baggage of the established old institutions. We have learnt from the best practices and we have implemented them. I welcome you to join us in this journey to excellence. Take time and browse through the information about the various departments in this school through this site.

Once more, welcome to this journey of excellence.
