ISBI Institute @ Strathmore was founded by Strathmore Educational Trust (SET) and an Austrian NGO, ICEP (www.icep.at), with the goal to promote business and management mastery amongst small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
We offer comprehensive innovative business programmes for entrepreneurs who wish to streamline their operations, expand their business and graduate from small informal stage to formal or higher levels of scale enterprises. The main focus of the programmes is on the immediate practical value for entrepreneurs and best practices from each industry involved. All business cases were developed based on real-life Kenyan examples. The class framework also provides an excellent opportunity to network and exchange ideas with like-minded entrepreneurs.
Our faculty is uniquely suited to address the SME segment. The combination of vast industry experience in their respective fields and interactive in class lecturing aims to provide a real competitive advantage through people.
