Eldoret-based Moi University has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Cytonn Investments to offer mentorship and training to its students after they graduate.
The programme will allow students from the university to gain work experience at the investment firm in the fields of entrepreneurship, real estate, HR, investments, economics, marketing, quantity survey, ICT and legal.
“The selected students will undergo 12-week intense training programme that exposes them to the office environment and culture,” said Cytonn Company Secretary Patricia Wanjama during the signing of the MoU at Moi University's main campus today.
She explained that the programme will expose graduates to challenging career options that are available to them, with an emphasis on leadership and problem solving skills.
Moi University Vice Chancellor, Professor Laban Ayiro, said the initiative will increase employability of its students.
“The programme will enable the graduates to be ready for absorption into the job market,” said Prof Ayiro.
Cytonn has also partnered with Embu University for a similar programme and seeks to sign MOU with six more universities as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility efforts in mentorship and career growth.
