MKU emerges among the top 10 universities in Kenya

Mount Kenya University (MKU) has been ranked among the top 10 best universities and the second best private university in Kenya.

In Africa, the institution has been ranked at position 258 out of more than 2,000 universities after improving from position 16 to 10 out of 124 institutions in the Kenyan ranking. In the sub-Saharan ranking, MKU has jumped from position 177 to 151 among the 1,393 colleges in the rankings released last week by Webometrics.

The Thika-based institution is now rated among the top 16 in continental rankings. 

“The ranking is a true reflection of the efforts that the university has put towards enhancing, teaching and learning, research and innovations,” says Prof Deogratius Jaganyi, MKU Vice-Chancellor.

“The university organised a research and innovation week last year where staff disseminated their research findings,” he said.

Overall, the University of Nairobi has retained the top slot in Kenya while Strathmore University is the best private college, according to the latest Webometrics rankings. Other leading institutions in Kenya include Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, Kenyatta University, Egerton, Moi, Maseno, Technical University of Nairobi and Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology.

This year, MKU has also ranked as a top performing institution of higher learning by UNIRANK and EDURANK after improving from position 6,318 to 5,437 out of 32,140 institutions in the world ranking. This put MKU in the top 19 per cent in the global rankings by the two institutions.
