Center for Executive Education hosts GEMBA Alumni workshop

By Jemima Oloo
The Centre for Executive Education in partnership with the Alumni Relations Department held a workshop on Friday 16 at the Sarova Panafric Hotel. The workshop brought together Alumni from different Global Executive Master of Business Administration (GEMBA) cohorts.

The networking event was packed with insightful conversations spearheaded by the event speaker Hannah Karanja who emphasized on the need for individuals to self-promote their achievements. Self-promotion according to Hannah is vital for one’s confidence.

According to Hannah, it is important to acknowledge achievements made for career growth.

“It is up to me to blow my own whistle. However, one has to be careful to back their praise of self with facts. Think of all the ways either big or small that you are remarkable and exercise the muscle of appreciating yourself,” she said.
Deputy Vice Chancellor, Transformational Teaching and Learning, Professor Amos Njuguna expressed his gratitude to the alumni as he recounted the GEMBA journey that initially started at a hall in Sarova Panafric Hotel, a testament of the hard work put in by every GEMBA Alumni. Prof. Amos shared on the institutions commitment to create a respectful, supportive culture that offers a robust engagement with communities and the industry.

“We educate for complex global challenges,” reiterated Prof. Amos, our dedication to educate the next generation of problem solvers who focus on impactful research that touches on global challenges especially with a focus on the creative arts sector. He called on the Alumni present to keep engaging and offering insights that will propel the university to a global stage as it carries out its mandate.

The host of the event, Edward Mutuku, Business Development Manager, Centre for Executive Education, and Professor of Marketing at USIU-Africa, Peter Kiriri encouraged the Alumni to continue to be part of the change through enrolling for the Customer Service Mastery Course.

The Customer Service Mastery Course that kicks of next month offers insights on how to bridge the gap between management and service delivery as a way to win the hearts, heads and hands of customers regardless of the industry. The Centre for Executive Education is committed to offering interactive learning techniques for global executives.
