Lecturers provided high quality teaching during my academic years. They were extremely knowledgeable and had a way of teaching that allows the information to seamlessly make sense. Supervision of Thesis was conducted professionally and the supervisors were always available and willing to talk or spend extra time on any confusing concept. There was good access to quality facilities. Transferable skills are taught well at School of Business to ensure graduates have better employability opportunities in the market place.

    • As a young student with no properly defined professional future, I joined Karatina University for an undergraduate program in Actuarial Science. First it was challenging to adapt due to chilly weather having hailed from a place with totally different climatic condition. Am proud to be associated with the institution and more so Karatina University Actuarial Students Association(KARUASA) which shaped me into a reasonable and knowledgeable professional. Currently I’m building my career in insurance and risk consultancy at ZAMARA Kenya.

    • I studied at Karatina University from 2011-2015 where I completed my undergraduate degree in business management, Purchasing and Supplies Management.

      Despite the few challenges we encountered owing to the transition from University college to chartered University in the early days, the experience that followed is unparalleled.

      Among my favorite memories was the treatment I received from my lecturers in the School of Business especially on career mentorship.

      Also, the university location, cool ambient and landscape design best fits the definition of a conducive learning environment for a university student.
