MKU among the most popular searched Universities in Kenya- research
The new study commissioned by Madison Insurance Company also revealed that in 2015/16, MKU had the highest student population among private universities, at 21,562. It thus accounted for nearly a third of the total number of students studying in private universities during this period.
Overall, MKU has the seventh largest student population in the list topped by UoN.
The study’s findings echo those by Corporate Staffing Services Ltd, a leading human resource consultancy firm in Kenya. The research shows that employers prefer hiring fresh graduates from private universities. MKU was among the most preferred with a 13 per cent popularity rating (View report here). The study by Breakthrough Consulting also shows that MKU competes favorably on fees charged, when compared to what public universities are charging under the Module II programme.
The University’s fees is affordable and payment is in flexible monthly instalments, thus making university education accessible to many in the region. For example, MKU’s fees for Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery compete well with what is charged by Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) and University of Nairobi.
MKU’s Bachelor of Science in Dental Technology degree programme is highly affordable. So are the University’s Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Economics and Statistics degree programmes. Other degree programmes in which MKU competes well include: Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology, Bachelor of Arts Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution, Bachelor of Science in Food Science, Nutrition and Technology, Bachelor of Education – Arts, B/Ed Sciences, Journalism, Law and Information Technology.
The study found that fees at MKU have either been revised downwards or kept constant in the last five years.
