Invitation for Students at Thika main campus to register for STEP
The Students Training for Entrepreneurial Promotion (STEP) has been introduced at MKU. STEP at MKU ( or STEP@MKU) shall target the 2nd year students from any degree program at Thika Campus to start with as a pilot project before it is introduced at other campuses.
STEP is offered in about 15 countries throughout the world by Leuphana University (Germany). In Kenya, it is offered in collaboration with Kenya National Commission for UNESCO (KNATCOM-UNESCO) and the hosting university (MKU in this case).
This is the introductory pilot project hence will only involve 2nd year students at Thika Campus from across all Degree programs.
The training will take place at the Old Senate Boardroom, for 11 to 12 weeks, 3 hours per week where students will chose to be trained on Monday 5-8pm, or Tuesday 5-8pm, or Wednesday 5-8pm, or Thursday 5-8pm.
As an entrepreneurial promotion program, all students will work in groups of 5 to form a company and each company will receive from Leuphana University some Ksh, 10,000 (USD 100) as seed capital to practice the skills learnt between January and March 2018. The seed capital will be returned in March upon completion of the training and students shall keep the profits. Thus STEP training uses real money, in real business and in real time.
Note: Only limited spaces are available on the first-come-first taken basis.
