The Safaricom Academy offers a two year Master’s degree course in Mobile Telecommunications and Innovation.
The Safaricom Academy was set up in 2010 through collaboration between Safaricom and Strathmore University, one of the leading private universities in Kenya.
This is an important pillar in sustainable economic development in line with Kenya’s Vision 2030. The program also seeks to develop leadership skills and increase student’s entrepreneurial spirit to meet the growing demand for innovative ICT solutions in Kenya.
The Safaricom Academy provides talented mobile application developers and graduates an opportunity to further develop their skills and set-up start-ups through tertiary training and incubation. The goal of this is to bridge the gap and build capacity in Mobile application development to ensure local developers are able to provide locally relevant innovative solutions to Kenyan problems and challenges.
