Graduate students network and talk research over cocktail
The School of Graduate Studies held a dinner for first-year Masters students on Friday, January 26, 2019 at the Strathmore University Business School’s Maasai Mara restaurant. The Masters dinner brought together students from all the 16 Masters programmes offered by Strathmore University. The dinner created an environment for the students to network and to hear from faculty on what to expect in their search for the graduate degrees.
Prof. Ruth Kiraka, Dean of the School of Graduate Studies, urged the students to give their best in their programmes because apart from granting them a degree, their research will have an impact in Kenya and around the world.
While giving the students tips on how to conduct effective ethical research, the Dean of Research and Innovation, Prof. Ismael Ateya, stated that an institutional review and ethics committee has been constituted to ensure that the process of getting a permit to carry out research is smooth. Each student’s research will be studied by the committee to ensure that ethical standards are adhered to.
He emphasized the need for the students to take advantage of the research conferences and symposiums in the different schools throughout the year. These are opportunities for the students to present their research to industry as well as meet the requirements for their degree.
Some of the conferences slated for later this year include the ICT conference which will be held on 22nd and 23rd March, 2019 and the fourth African International Economic Law Network Biennial Conference which will take place from 18th to 20th July, 2019.
