The Strathmore University Business School (SBS) is now a member of the Business School Alliance for Health Management (BAHM).
SBS is the only institution in Africa offering an MBA in Healthcare Management (MBA-HCM), and a Ph.D. in Healthcare Management.

In addition to its full-time business faculty, SBS works with visiting faculty from institutions such as the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard Business School, both BAHM members.
“We believe that our BAHM membership will support our mission to advance the knowledge of our students and to provide our faculty with benchmarks for their pursuit of excellence,” said Dr. George Njenga, Executive Dean, Strathmore university Business School. “At the same time, we look forward to introducing BAHM members to innovations we have launched and participated in that could provide valuable learnings for health systems in the United States and beyond.”
