About Us

“We aim to build capacity and create a new generation of finance practitioners possessing competency in the field of finance.”


Prof. Kinandu Muragu, Executive Director

Our History

The Kenya School of Monetary Studies was established and registered as a corporate entity under the Companies Act (CAP. 486) Laws of Kenya and Limited by Guarantee in 1997 to build capacity in response to the bank failures in 1980/1990s. The bank failures were mainly attributed to inadequate staff with requisite skills in banking and financial management, economic reforms arising from World Bank/IMF Structural Adjustment Programme and inadequate postgraduate economists required to formulate economic policies.
