In today’s highly competitive Kenyan job market, people are looking to gain an advantage by adding more skills to their repertoire.
They may want to pursue a certificate, diploma, degree, or postgraduate program that they believe will provide them with the skills necessary to compete in the global job market.
Some are already working and are unwilling to leave their jobs to pursue higher education on campus. They want to work and study at the same time.
This explains the growing popularity of online learning and many Kenyans choose this form of study as it allows them to “kill two birds with one stone”, work and study.
One of the universities that Kenyans are joining is Nexford University, an industry leader in online learning.
The American university offers its courses completely online, which is very attractive for busy Kenyans due to the flexibility.
As Kenyan students prepare for success in the global talent market, Nexford University will equip them with the skills needed to excel as digital leaders in today’s dynamic technology world.
Online learning is also preparing them to work remotely, a trend that has gained traction since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Learners from 95 nations, including Kenyans, study 100 percent online at Nexford University with 24/7 support from advisors and faculty.
One of Nexford University’s Kenyan learners is Hesbon Oenga. When he decided it was time to graduate, he decided to study online at Nexford University. Rachel Ndunda also chose the same university as Beatrice Ani.
These three Kenyan students share their reasons for choosing Nexford University and their individual learning experiences.
As a mother, Rachel says attending Nextord University gives her flexibility. She also appreciates how cheap the education at the university is. Nexford charges Sh10,900 per month for a four-year undergraduate degree and Sh21,900 per month for an 18-month MBA program.
Hesbon, who is pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration in Supply Chain Management, loves that he can work and study at the same time. “It saves me time and money because I don’t have to move,” he says, noting that not having to study on a physical campus costs him less.
For her part, Beatrice, who is studying for an MBA, cites Nexford’s affordability, flexibility and quality of education as what impressed her.
Beatrice is happy that she can study for an American MBA in Kenya from the comfort of her own home. “I would recommend Nexford University to anyone looking to improve digitally, professionally and personally.”
She adds: “Nexford University is the next big thing and everyone should be a part of it.”

Nexford University’s connection to Kenya goes beyond these students, as the American university also has Kenyan staff in its ranks.
Prospective students from all parts of the world can choose from a number of specializations and acquire in-demand skills.
The Washington-based university was founded in 2017 in response to a global need for a different kind of higher education. Nexford is designed as a next-generation university for today’s digital learners who want to master in-demand skills without having to leave their job, as would be the case for a campus-based education.
Nexford University believes that this is the time for a paradigm shift in university education and putting learners first and equipping them with the skills to be successful now and in the future should be a priority.
Nexford University recently held its first global degree in Washington DC (Nexford’s hometown) in the United States, releasing the 2022 graduates to the global job market.
