Learning Process
Varied combinations of learning activities are employed on the Programme. These are designed to stimulate learning in participants as well as investigate new approaches to management by providing new skills and a platform for practical application.

The main pedagogical tool used in the OMP is the case study method. Skills are built through targeted lectures, readings, presentations and case studies, discussed in study groups with the aim of introducing new ideas and theories that challenge participants’ existing perspectives. This approach also permits participants to benefit from the latent knowledge of experienced faculty. Learning also includes business simulation games, business impact assessment, sharing of entrepreneurial journeys by participants and executive coaching sessions.


Delivery is over six months of six modules. Participants will be in class one week (Monday – Friday) every month.

Participants on this module will be opportune to visit top organisations, learn and exchange ideas with the Kenyan business community in addition to taking a module in Strathmore Business School owner-manager programme class. Payment for this international module is not included in the fees.
