In 2004, Egerton University established a campus college to enhance the availability of affordable education in the Eastern region of Kenya. Three years later, in 2007, Chuka University was established through a legal notice and became a fully fledged public institution. This was made possible when the local community donated 550 acres of land to enable the institution to come up and to aid in any future expansion. Since its establishment, Chuka University provides various degree programmes and courses. One such programme is the Bachelor’s Degree program in Agribusiness Management. The degree course is a combination of Agriculture and Social Sciences. Individuals who wish to apply for the Bachelor of Agribusiness Management course need to satisfy certain admission criteria.
