In line with university of Nairobi strategic plan enabler of competitiveness and image which aims at positioning and marketing university globally, the School of Business guided by the concept of incremental innovation organized a coffee talk with its existing international students enrolled in both undergraduate and graduate programmes.

The event was held on Friday 3rd August, 2018 at the school of Business Lower Kabete campus.  The aim was to network, appreciate the international students for choosing university of Nairobi, School of Business and encourage them to be brand ambassadors’ of University and School of Business in their home countries.


The occasion was graced by the Acting Dean, School of Business C. N. Kariuki, Director Centre for International Programmes and Links (CIPL) Prof. William Ogaro, Associate Dean Graduate Business Studies Prof. Mary Kinoti, and Coordinator International Links and Student Exchange Programmes, School of Business, Dr. Margaret M. Kariuki.


During the discourse and networking session it came out clearly that the international Students significantly contributes to cultural diversity which the School of Business have the opportunity to utilize.

Some of the issues and challenges that were noted as faced by International students include:-

  • Language barrier                                      
  • Acquisition of legal documents
  • Security issues
  • Accommodation
  • Remittance of funds from their sponsors for fees payments
  • Failure to complete programs within the time allowed by their home countries especially those on government or employer scholarship.

The Centre of International Programmes and Links (CIPL) office promised to assist in addressing these challenges and thanked the school for coming up with this brilliant intiative.

Moving forward, it was agreed that the School of Business will be hosting coffee talks on Quarterly basis as a way of continuously engaging with the international students; that the school organize and facilitate outreach Programmes and trips outside Nairobi to give them opportunity to tour and experience Kenyan hospitality, beauty and diversity among other experiences. These activities are envisaged to enrich their experiences in Kenya and therefore, they will be more likely to market the University and the School internationally. The school is proud to have hosted this very important event
