Director, Open Distance and E-Learning

 

The Management University of Africa has been offering academic programmes through Open Distance and E-Learning (ODEL) and a blended mode of study since 2013; with the aim of creating wider access to University Education. This blended mode of study caters for professionals from all walks of life and students to study away from the traditional brick and mortar classrooms without interrupting their work and other important schedules.

 

Worth noting is that ODEL has a population of over 1,000 students and manages 13 centers regionally and 4 centers internationally. MUA recognizes that studying under ODEL mode of study requires self-sacrifice, hardwork and discipline.

Save a Dream

Save a dream Logo

 

The Development Fund of the Management University of Africa was established in September 2014. The establishment of the fund was informed by the desire to allow access to affordable University Education to students from deprived communities and regions that are graded under the equalization fund as well as support bright and gifted students in Kenya and beyond. Others are persons with physical challenges and other disadvantaged groups particularly women and the youth. Moreover, the conflict prone deprived communities and regions in Kenya and indeed Africa and the World require high calibre human resource skilled in Management, Leadership, Governance and Entrepreneurship for development.

In addition, Resource mobilization, conflict management and Resolution knowledge and skills are also a prerequisite for development. This is much more so important now in Kenya with the recent discovery of natural resources such as water aquifers, oil and gas deposits in Northern Kenya. The purpose of our Fund is to cater for tuition fees as well as upkeep of the beneficiaries while studying at the University. In addition, the fund hopes to establish a Work - Study Programme for continuing students who can no longer afford to pay tuition fees along the way.

 The University and its sponsor offer their programmes on cost recovery basis so as to reach as many Kenyans as possible. This means that revenue generated from academic programmes is not sufficient to provide scholarships, fellowships and bursaries to young bright, talented and needy students as well as meeting other obligations of the University. This state of affairs persuaded the University to establish an Endowment Fund in August 2014.

 

OBJECTIVE AND PURPOSE

The objective of the fund is to support bright but needy and talented students from disadvantaged backgrounds in Kenya, Africa and the World to study and redeem their dreams at the Management University of Africa, thus the name ‘Save a Dream’ Scholarship Fund.

The purpose is to:

  1. Pay tuition fees and upkeep for the benefiting students while studying at the Management University of Africa;
  2. Establish a Work - Study Programme for continuing students who can no longer afford to pay tuition fees due to unforeseen circumstances; and
  3. Support renowned international professors, scholars, adjunct faculty and highly regarded business personalities to MUA from around the world to deliver lectures on topical issues.

 

STRUCTURE, GOVERNANCE AND ADMINISTRATION 

The fund is structured through the following categories:

  1. Investment Fund – to invest in easily convertible markets to generate quick returns;
  2. “Save a Dream” Scholarship Fund – to pay fees and tuition to the University;
  3. Work-Study Programme Fund – Proceeds paid to the University to off-set outstanding fees/tuition balance; and
  4. Facilitation Fund – to bring in highly regarded and respected Scholars, Professors, Business personalities, Adjunct Faculty, and among others from around the World to speak on topical issues at the University.

The fund is governed by the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the Management University of Africa and administered by the University’s Endowment Fund Secretariat.

ICT SHORT COURSE TRAININGS

The Microsoft Dynamics Navision Ethics, Security, Fraud and Forensic Training

 

Preview

 

Universities, Colleges and SACCOs have realized the benefits of adopting ICT for efficiency in operations and competitive advantage. An information system is an expensive organizational asset that needs to be utilized properly and protected to achieve its intended organizational strategic objectives. Companies have recently adopted enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems which seek to automate all the business operations including finance management, human resource, payroll and procurement. This Automation of business processes has introduced new risks to organizations through transforming the manual internal controls into automated controls. In view of this, there is a need for organizations to deeply understand how the ERP system is structured developed and the interrelationships between different modules available. The network platform on which this ERP interconnects provides opportunity for hackers to intrude the information system. The organizations need to empower the key ERP custodians/user with the necessary information system auditing skills to detect and deter any internal and external threat to the system.

The Microsoft Dynamics Ethics, Security, Fraud and Forensic training will provide these necessary skills and knowledge to users to be able execute their duties effectively and enable the ERP system achieve its intended objectives seamlessly.
