Developing Professionally – Networking Breakfast for Master of Applied Philosophy and Ethics

The School of Humanities and Social Sciences (SHSS) held a networking breakfast for Masters of Applied Philosophy and Ethics (MAPE) on 11th November 2015 with the aim of equipping people with knowledge on the theme; Developing professionally – minded professionals. MAPE is a two-year part time program that gives a base for development of any human activity in a way that it is not only technically well done, but also conducive to the betterment of all people involved in it.


Speaking at the event was the Dean Strathmore Law School, Dr. Luis Franceschi, who broadly deliberated on ethics in motion; the art of becoming original thinkers pointing out systems of ethics that needed to be put in place. Some of the systems highlighted included; courage, prudence, self-control, justice and humility, which is the ability to overcome selfishness and serve others habitually. Dr. Franceschi further explained on the realities human beings face in their daily lives which include school, family and work. He went ahead to discuss on the great dangers affecting the youth such as attitude to roles, elasticity, individualism, maturity and the wrong gods. He concluded by advising that MAPE is designed to make one a better person with much knowledge in ethics.


A MAPE alumnus spoke of her experience at the school which she said was an eye opener as she got to discover so much about herself through the program. MAPE changed my career path because I got to know myself better, unlike my career which only concentrated on my technical skills. The alumnus emphasized on the importance of personally improving oneself through self-awareness; knowing who you are, what you stand for and what you’re working for. She found the course very interesting and according to her, the classroom experience was fantastic.
