Director - Postgraduate Studies
The Directorate was formally established in September 2014. The Directorate performs its strategic functions through the Board of Postgraduate Studies (BPS) in collaboration with the schools offering graduate programmes.
The Board performs the following responsibilities: development, support and review of postgraduate programmes in order to meet the needs of the nation and the world; oversight of graduate students’ admissions in collaboration with the relevant schools; and finally, monitor standards and requirements and maintain accurate students’ records.
The Board, therefore, is expected to provide the requisite environment for graduate studies and also function as an administrative and support unit for all graduate students.
The Directorate is fast-growing, dynamic and committed to training, monitoring and molding graduate students to become astute academicians and researchers capable of working under challenging conditions to provide sustainable solutions to problems. The board is expected to facilitate dissemination of research findings through conferences and publications. The board ensures that before graduation, students publish at least two papers from their thesis.
Since its inception, the Board of Postgraduate Studies has enrolled over 500 students into various programmes. The Board is committed to ensuring that our students graduate within the stipulated time.
The Board takes this opportunity to congratulate the graduands of 2015 and wish them well. As you step out, endeavor to join the list of individuals who are shaping the destiny of this Nation and making contributions to the developing story of Africa on the rise. We also welcome prospective postgraduate students to Maasai Mara University.
