My learning experience at MKU
Mr Nicholas Kirwa Biwott, the director and CEO of Kabiyet Dairies in Nandi County, is an alumnus of Mount Kenya University (MKU) Eldoret Campus. He completed his studies for Bachelor of Business Management (Accounting option) in 2012. He had joined in 2010 at year two through credit transfer. He tells the story of his study experience at the university:
“Mount Kenya University became a university of choice because they kept their promise of giving me credit transfers, which they did because I had attained CPA (K) earlier. “The best thing I can talk about the faculty is that they were always committed and dedicated towards imparting knowledge to their students. I am one of the beneficiaries throughout my third and fourth years.
“I remember the days with nostalgia; the university founder Prof Simon Gicharu visiting us in our campus and encouraging us ‘to be great men and women in the society’. He would treat us to lunch or dinner. May God bless him abundantly for his generosity. “While at the university, I got an opportunity to participate in sporting activities and became the volleyball captain. With the university management support, we got an opportunity to participate in leagues and managed to win the KUSA games 2016.
“I completed my studies and graduated in the year 2012 with a First Class Honours (degree) from the School of Business and Economics. “After graduation, I furthered my leadership role by participating in socio-economic empowerment programmes, and I was elected as a director of Kabiyet Sacco Society Limited in Nandi County in 2013. I served for a year.
“On 2 January 2014, I became General Manager and CEO of Kabiyet Dairies Company Ltd after emerging victorious in an interview attended by graduates from other universities. I am still working diligently with the same organisation. “Big thanks to MKU for being student- centred, since this helped me complete my studies very well without any financial difficulties. MKU mode of paying fees is flexible and affordable to everyone.
“As a CEO, I have constantly attached students in my organisation, and I can attest that they have been properly prepared. “Therefore, I urge all the prospective students to enrol with Mount Kenya University and feel the state of the art facilities and highly qualified personnel…. Studying in MKU is studying in a world class university. May God bless the MKU founder Prof Simon Gicharu and the entire university.”
