The School was established in 2008 from the then Department of Economics that was housed in the School of Humanity and Social Sciences. Formation of a School of Economics was to give the economics discipline at Kenyatta University a chance to evolve and increase its research activities in order for the School to contribute its fair share to knowledge augmentation in Economics. The School has the autonomy to develop specialized Degree Programmes that are market driven so as to attract more students who currently go abroad in search of specialized economics courses such as Bachelor of Economics and Statistics; Bachelor of Economics and Finance; Master of Economics in such specialized areas as Health Economics, Financial Economics, Environmental Economics, just to mention but a few. Moreover, the for a very long time, the students of economics have been clamouring for an award of the “Degree of Economics” as distinct from the general Bachelor of Arts degree. Furthermore, there exists great demand by both the public and private sectors for graduates with degrees in specialized fields of Economics. This is evidenced by the large number of students with degrees in Economics, who have in the recent past been employed by financial institutions and the Public Service Commission. We are therefore responding to a market need.

Success in life more than just understands a concept, memorizing it and reproducing it in an examination. We all need to be practical and creative outside the class environment too. The decision to join KUESA is one of the best decisions I have ever made since I joined this university. It has given me an opportunity to impact lives through community service, interactions with students, listening to their ideas and helping them link to the corporate world and also an opportunity to practice my skills. I have been able to grow both academically, mentally, professionally and as a leader. This is a journey of holistic growth that I would recommend every student in the School of Economics together with those interested in economic affairs should take. KUESA is the best club in the School of Economics and the university at large. It is a family you will never regret being part of. Join and let’s grow together.".
