Strathmore Institute: We transform passion into impact

 

 There is “keeping busy” and then there is “Strathmore Institute Busy.”  When the pandemic took over many were lost in the maze of what to do next. However, that was not the case at the Strathmore Institute of Management and Technology. The team spearheaded online-learning to a level that saw the seamless continuation of a semester that was already half over. In addition, this learning has been blended in as the institute absorbs new trends for the ongoing and upcoming semesters.

Blended Community

Strathmore Institute is the professional training arm of Strathmore University and is an accredited institution under the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TVETA). The institute was registered by TVETA in February 2017.  As a platform for higher learning our focus goes over and above providing professional courses in accountancy, information technology, management skills, entrepreneurial skills and enhancing teaching. In addition we are keen to continually immerse ourselves in other emerging areas of interest in technological, technical and vocational training so we can better meet what the market demands.

Desire to shine as a trailblazer

Our approach is unique; through a combination of academic, experiential learning and a dynamic student experience, we deliver an education that is advanced and with learning models that are above par.

Students are taking advantage of the online learning to exploring opportunities to better themselves and the community. For example, John (Diploma in International Relations)  has shared that online classes have allowed him to save money and he is now working on a project “ Be My shoes”. The initiative seeks to fit young soles with a pair of shoes for going to school.  For Neeti (Diploma in Business Management), being in Strathmore Institute ignites her hunger to become a “woman in business “. She is being nurtured and the environment allows her to take her quest head-on as she develops her abilities. For many others the availability of internet bundles, courtesy of Strathmore University, has created access online classes that have been a welcome gesture for those on the way to being productive

Last year in November, the institution awarded diplomas and professional certificates to 531 graduates. Some of the nations represented included the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Malawi, Uganda, South Sudan, Rwanda, India and Kenya.
