About The College

Our History

MIBS College opened its doors on 1st April 2017, registered as Meru Institute of Business Studies, at Meru town, Sarah Plaza 3rdfloor, opposite Meru main stage. It was dedicated by Bishop Patrick Kariuki on May 2017.It had zero students and 3 staffs; director, lecturer and secretary. After 3 months of marketing with no results, the college was moved to Kamawe Building 4th floor on July 2017. Our first student joined, Florence Muthoni, under the school of business. She was taught alone till the end of year 2017. During that period, the director went round the villages, shopping centers, schools, churches and public gatherings, explaining the purpose of college; that is “To produce entrepreneurs, problem solvers and job creators.” The idea was well received and accepted as evidenced by the massive admission of over 70 students in January 2018 intake. This made the number of staffs to rise from 3 to 8 immediately. A once empty structures became a beehive of activities, the first student body was elected, and clubs were formed. Two more schools were formed; school of ICT and school of Beauty. Through strict adherence of the college’s core values; Teamwork, student focus and God fearing, the number of students and staffs has grown since then. Towards the end of 2018, the college moved to Meru-Makutano, Ntima House 3rdFloor, above co-operative bank. Today, the college has a population of 26 members of staffs and over 500 students, having had 2 KNEC sittings, where 100% of the students passed with credit and many with distinctions. We have 10 schools, a vibrant student leadership council, over 15 active clubs and student composition of over 35 counties in Kenya. MIBS College has been approved by the ministry of education under TVETA and appointed as a national examination center by KNEC. Over the period, we have developed strong partnerships with other organizations that we share the same purpose of solving the problems that affect our community. They include; Kenya National Library Service [KNLS], Google Agrica, Young African Leadership Initiative [YALI], Compassion Kenya and Chestus Computers Consultant LTD. Through these partnerships, we are able to achieve our purpose with ease since most of the skills have been sponsored, such as, working online, digital marketing and bonus skill for each course. In addition, ALL Talents (promotion, training and recording) have been fully sponsored; music [voice and instruments], DJ, Dancing, Modelling, Acting, Swimming, Dart, Chess, Soccer, Volleyball and Basketball. Our main focus is on entrepreneurship development. Based on the fact that there are many young people out there seeking for jobs, our mission is to equip our students with skills that will enable them to identify a problem and quickly develop an idea to solve it. This is the foundation and gateway to becoming problem solvers and job creators. Based on this, we have set aside one day in a week [Friday] to learn the common unit of entrepreneurship and business ideas, and hold business ideas challenge every month in order to polish up the students’ ideas before introducing them to investors for partnerships. Together with HODs and all staffs, we hold hands to ensure that each and every department sharpens its students to shine during the challenge besides the normal lectures as follows; 1.
