A business network is elementary for universities. For this reason, several individual events are held to strengthen and expand cooperation between the Kenyan partner universities and companies.
Mount Kenya University through the Directorate of MKU Foundation organised a successful breakfast meeting with 21 industries under the umbrella of the Kenya Association of Manufacturers, Central Region. Also present were representatives from Linking Industry with Academia (LIWA). This was the first of a series of initiatives meant to forge strong partnership
with the industry that will enable the university and the industry to realize their respective mission. During the meeting, representatives from the industry suggested areas of possible partnership that will enhance practical-oriented training that qualifies students for the labour market and for individual transformation.
