The courses listed above are trending in Kenya today.One of the best courses in the list is Criminology. Due to the threat of Alshabaab,several private institutions, the government and international institutions are seeking the advice of these professionals. Criminology is the best course and one of the highest paying careers in the country. Let me surprise you today, the average salary of a forensic and security expert in Kenya is higher than that of a Doctor-Ksh 200,000 per month.
Bachelor of IT is also a nice course but you can easily be jobless if you are not good in programming. The course requires you to pursue popular IT professional courses like CISCO, CCNT, CCIT etc,but if you will come out here half baked woe unto you.
Bachelor of Nursing is the course I can advice anyone to study. This course is unique in that even if no one is ready to employ you as long as you have a certificate you can start your own clinic and become a millionaire instantly. You can also start a chemist and decide your profit.
Fincally, acourse in Mathematic is good but it becomes even better when you pursue a masters course and learn abit of statistical tools like SPSS,Stata,R and My SQL.But a plain Mathematics course is not so popular out here unless a bank decides to employ you as a graduate trainee or KRA employs you as management trainee.
What I can advice you even if you are not at MMUST,always make sure you don’t stick to your degree course alone,try to diversify by pursuing other popular professional courses. The best combination include Mathematics and CFA, Mathematics and ACCA, CPA, Mathematics and Statistics or Mathematics and Actuarial Science.
