Strathmore University students to attain Kempinski opportunities after institutions establish MoU


Strathmore University and Kempinski Hotels recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) where Strathmore University School of Tourism & Hospitality (SU-STH) students will from now on be lined up for internships at the prestigious hotel chain.

The number of SU-STH students selected will be dependent on SU’s departmental needs and Kempinski’s operational capacity. In the agreement that was recently inked, Kempinski will also provide job shadow opportunities for two Strathmore University staff members per year for a period of one month each for industry exposure.

On the other hand, Strathmore University will offer a 15% discount on tuition fees to Kempinski staff who meet the entrance requirements. Staff members who hold a 3- or 4-year diploma in hospitality management from an accredited institution will also be free to apply for a special exempt programme for a Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management as long as they meet the admission requirements as set by the Commission for University Education (CUE).

A further 10% discount on the applicable tuition fees will be extended to Kempinski staff who participate in executive programmes conducted at SU-STH.
