About Our Institution

Mount Kenya University established a foothold in Rwanda in 2008. The idea of establishing a presence in Rwanda was hatched by enquiries by Rwandan students who were yearning for international degrees. After placing an advert in a regionally-circulating newspaper, the university received several inquiries
about its academic programmes.   

  • Competitive & Accredited Programmes
  • Top notch research, Incubation and innovation
  • State-of-art- teaching infrastructure
  • Friendly Student life & On-Campus Accommodation

The Land of a Thousand Hills

Only two decades ago, Rwanda,a small, land-locked country in Central Africa was the epicentre of one of the worst pogroms in human history. Over 800,000 people were killed in a three month orgy of violence now remembered as “Genocide Against Tustis.” Fast forward to 2014 and Rwanda is the veritable phoenix that rose from the ashes. It has become a model country not only in East Africa but the entire continent. Its governance system, economic opportunities, efficiency, cleanliness and general order have become the barometer against which other countries are measuring their success. At the heart of this progress is Mount Kenya University-Kigali Campus, which introduced the first International Executive MBA programme to enable the country harness its human resource potential to the full. Kigali, the capital of Rwanda is a vibrant, undulating land replete with youthful talent and energy. The Campus helps mould this talent, shaping the future and successful destiny of a phoenix rising from the ashes.
