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:
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”.
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.”
- To further academic and professional knowledge through academic and professional discourses.
- To facilitate linkage between the theoretical knowledge and the practical industry applications through facilitation of internships and attachments.

" KUESA has given me an opportunity to impact lives through community service. It has also given me an arena to transform ideas from imaginations to practical application. It has also built my confidence through interaction with students and corporates. It is the only association i would recommend any student interested in Economics affairs to join. KUESA is also a hub for employees and entrepreneurs. "
