Insights from Dr. Laila Macharia on the current state of higher education in Kenya
In 2018, the World Bank ranked Kenya the top African country for education outcomes. To discuss the state of the nation, and what is driving the current Kenyan higher learning landscape, we spoke to Dr. Laila Macharia.
Dr. Macharia has experienced first hand how education changes lives, now as a Senior Advisor at Nexford University, we are hoping that she will help bring Nexford education to Kenya, partnering with organizations looking to upskill and reskill their teams in the wake of digital transformation.
