KENYATTA UNIVERSITY ECONOMICS STUDENTS ASSOCIATION

Kenyatta University Economics Students Association (KUESA) is a conglomeration of students studying economics and also those interested in economic affairs. It operates in conjunction with the school of Economics under which it falls.

It was established with the theme of promoting students’ intellectual welfare which is achieved through its various activities.

Its running of affairs is overseen by a patron who is also the current Director of School of Economics under whom there is an executive committee:

 VISION

We are committed to our Vision of “Nurturing world class economic leaders who can confront conventional thinking to deliver solutions to the economic challenges of the new millennium”.                                                                      

MISSION

Our Mission is to “create an enabling and challenging environment for accomplishment of academic, professional and social pursuits for everyone interested in economic affairs through facilitation of internships, seminars and career talks.”                                                                                                                                 

OBJECTIVES

i.        To further academic and professional knowledge through academic and professional discourses.

ii.      To facilitate linkage between the theoretical knowledge and the practical industry applications through facilitation of internships and attachments.

iii.    To promote and facilitate effective communication and understanding of economics through research and whenever possible, publications in form of newsletters and other documentations.

iv.     To promote a cordial students-lecturer relationship.

v.       To promote personal and social development of members through participation in activities such as community outreach

 vi.     To sharpen skills and awareness of members in the wake of a competitive and rewarding labour market.

STRATEGIC PRIORITIES

After carrying out a careful situational analysis we have identified various key areas that will enable us meet our vision and achieve our plans and it is from these areas that we plan our activities:

  • Link our members to the job market.
  • Liaise with the corporate world through research, extension and other activities.
  • Social responsibility.   
  • Increase our resource base.
  • Continuous improvement of our club image.
  • Link with Economic clubs from other Universities and educational institutions.

 

A massage from the Chairman.

" Ever since I joined Kenyatta University School of Economics, I have never looked back. The School of Economics is one of the best schools in Kenyatta University. Kenyatta University Economics Student association (KUESA) is a club mandated from School of Economics. KUESA’s main objective is to link students with the corporate world through corporate visits, career day, public lectures and through soliciting for internships. This club enables students to interact closely with their lecturers in forums such as corporate dinners and in the first years’ orientation. Finally, KUESA enables students to nurture their leadership skills either by serving in the club’s executive committee or by serving in the various departmental committees. The School of Economics and KUESA all work in harmony to ensure that Kenyatta University nurtures world class economists. Thank you and God bless KUESA, the School of Economics and Kenyatta University.’’

Testimonials

KUESA is the best ground where economic leaders are nurtured. I thank the School of Economics administration from the Dean who is our patron, the chairmen of departments and the lecturers who in full capacity have mentored, inspired and nurtured me to be who I am. I have personally grown and developed myself, networked with different corporates and nurtured my talent through the various platforms provided by KUESA. This platform has created an enabling and challenging environment for accomplishment of my academic, professional and social pursuits, enhanced linkages between theoretical and practical industry and promoted effective understanding of economics. I thank the Almighty God for enabling me to serve in KUESA and impact on students through various forums".
