The Chairman Of Council - RVIBS

Welcome to the Rift Valley Institute of Business Studies (RVIBS). The management, faculty and support staff are dedicated to making your experience at RVIBS enjoyable and rewarding. Exciting things are happening in the world of education today. COVID19 is transforming how we interact. RVIBS competitive repositioning and innovation design will no doubt make it highly exciting for you both inside and outside the classroom.

We are living in a world where young people are suffering because of our education system. The system has conditioned many to become job seekers of white collar jobs.

Institutions of higher learning are churning out hundreds of thousands of graduates who cannot match the low number of job opportunities in the industry.
The Rift Valley Institute of Business Studies strives to close this gap by offering training that nurtures creativity and innovation for wealth and job creation.

History is riddled with evidence that young people have potential to transform societies, we believe in this power and yearn to unleash it! Though academic grades are a requirement for training, we focus on an individual’s God-given talent and skills.

We have invested heavily in the best trainers, technology and equipment to ensure you are equipped with top skills in your field.

I invite you to be part of this exciting journey, check our courses and programs across campuses.

Through prudent and visionary leadership and strong partnerships, RVIBS has established six campuses namely Nakuru campus (Main),  Gilgil campus and Njoro campus. It is within our strategic plan to increase our presence in Kenya by establishing more campuses. In ten years’, time we endeavor to be in at least twenty-seven counties in Kenya. This is designed to make us more accessible to learners from all over Kenya.

To give it an international outlook and give our students and staff international experience, RVIBS has established relationships with international bodies and institutions. To name just but a few NOREC through the Norwegian government has helped in international trainer exchange programs which have highly impacted our trainer’s skills and enabled our students to experience international trainers.
