Prof. Shibairo said that alumni are an important organ of any institution as they carry the image of their respective institutions. He called upon the MMUSTAA to work together and reach all MMUST alumni across the world to contribute towards the transformation of MMUST. “Our MMUST alumni are our best bet as far as branding and promoting of our University is concerned. You move with MMUST’s name whenever you go and that is the best way of marketing. My administration will work closely with the alumni to ensure the visibility and success of this great institution,” said Prof Shibairo.

According the MMUST Alumni Association Chairman Mr Kennedy Echesa, the alumni network has become stronger through the alumni awards and best performance recognitionheld a day before every graduation. Mr. Echesa expressed confidence that through such events, the MMUST alumni will be able to network and do great things together. He said that as the Chairman of MMUST Alumni Association, he will work towards ensuring that MMUST Alumni hosts career fairs for current students to connect with possible future employers from different companies across Kenya and beyond. He further said that as an alumni association, they will help best performing graduates to get scholarships and internships from different companies.

With the growing number of educational institutions around the world, institutions have a duty of making sure that they market themselves through their alumni. One of the best ways any institution can stand out, both locally and internationally is through branding and relentless promotion of their brand.
