Welcome to the School of Tourism, Hospitality and Events Management (STHEM), Moi University. The School aims at offering insights into the real-world problems and issues confronting the tourism, travel and hospitality sectors at the local, national, regional and international levels. It is at the forefront in bridging training needs and gaps identified in Kenya Vision 2030, National Tourism Policy and the Ministry of Tourism’s Strategic Plan. The School offers a wide range of programmes at diploma, undergraduate and post graduate levels. The programmes are industry-relevant and seek to equip graduates with a perfect blend of theory and creative approaches needed to chart a career based on excellence with a focus on managing the challenges inherent in the tourism, travel and hospitality sectors. The school boasts of offering a variety of foreign languages, including French, Spanish, German and Chinese. This is out of the realization that tourism and hospitality cannot be offered without a blend of foreign languages. The School has put in place programmes to enhance the students’ welfare and tap into student’s creativity and talent. Students’ professional bodies such as Tourism Association of Moi University (TAMU) and Hospitality Association of Moi University (HAMU) have been instrumental in promoting students professional welfare.
