Friday, February 19, 2022, the Office of Career Services in partnership with Harley Reed rolled out a pilot session to introduce the Business Readiness Program to the Faculty of Business and Management Sciences students. The theme of the pilot session was “From Learning to Earning.” The blended session was held at the NTB4 Hall at the Lower Kabete Campus and with some students and facilitators joining the session virtually.  

During the sessions, the Participating students worked in small groups to discuss tasks assigned by the facilitators of the day Sonia Weston, Edith Uyovbukerhi, and Mercy Muchiri from Harley Reed. The session covered a variety of topics that introduced students to the real-world business environment and the necessary skills like emotional intelligence, self-awareness, stakeholders’ identification, mapping, and management the students will need as they transition from the university to join the workforce.  

Harley Reed has designed the Business Readiness Program targeting University of Nairobi students pursuing a degree in Business Commerce. The program aims to equip the students with skills in the workplace to make them valuable members of a team in an organization. Once the program is launched, Harley Reed will conduct a series of activities at the Faculty of Business and Management Sciences for the better part of 2022.
