Historical Background of Strathmore University
In March 1966, the first intake of Accountancy students, twenty-five in number, joined the Sixth Form students, and began preparing for the examinations of the UK-based Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). These first Accountancy students were sponsored by Shell East Africa, BAT (East Africa) and the East African Breweries. At this time Strathmore College was unique as a fully integrated post-Form 4 institution offering both academic and professional courses.
In October 1982, owing to the increased demand from companies for the professional training of their employees, the College began evening courses in Accountancy after normal working hours, with 60 students sponsored by various companies.
A total population of 4,393 students(full-time and part-time) studying Accountancy, Administration, Commerce, Finance, Management and Information Technology.
Becoming a University
In August 2002 the Commission of Higher Education awarded Strathmore a Letter of Interim Authority to operate as a University with a Faculty of Commerce and a Faculty of Information Technology.
The first undergraduate students to enroll in these faculties completed their 4-year degree course in December 2004 and graduated in August 2005.
In June 2007, Kenya’s Commission for Higher Education approved the award of a charter to Strathmore University.
