Message from the Dean School of Business and Economics
It is with great pleasure that I write about School of Business and Economics (SBE), a school that is currently experiencing a major leap of all times. SBE is a sphere of business and economics studies. The School of Business and Economics was established in the year 2014, with a mission to provide a holistic Business Education, Training and Research in Human Capital Development aiming to produce globally competitive graduates.
The School boasts of quality, market driven and very innovative programmes administered in Garissa University. We believe in the power of education to transform and to offer opportunity and access to all. Students within the school at all levels of progress and more that will join are assured of a resourceful team of staff that have a common focus, that of academic progress. SBE is driven by a strong belief in fairness, professionalism and academic progress. The reason why SBE is such a great school is its faculty and its broad academic offerings; its palette of culture and technology.
In line with the promise of global relevance and desire to build the future graduate of business and economics in the image and likeness of the country’s needs and challenges, we face head on the fact that business is increasingly becoming complex and require the ability to operate in the context of the broader society. Our students start by learning to master the foundations of business and economics. This is no longer enough: today’s business environment requires graduates to have the ability to address issues that cross-functional boundaries with global perspective, an innovative and entrepreneurial mind-set, ethical grounding, commitment to diversity, respect for sustainability, and technological sophistication. SBE has embraced Problem Based Learning and modular approach to teaching. Our ability to contribute to the solution of many of today’s societal problems is based not just on academic excellence, which we have great abundance, but on sustained culture of creativity and innovation.
SBE improves society by developing principled leaders for the world of practical affairs. This drives everything we do. The school’s approaches to achieving our mission- include student-centered learning, thoughtful leadership and active engagement with the business community.
