Personnel who will be employed in service industry, financial institutions, production organizations, research, consultancy and educational institutions.iii). Managers who will use IT skills to meet the current management requirements in offices and industry.iv). Trained personnel who will assist senior managers in the use of IT.v). Client advisors on the use and application of IT in business applications.
Admission Requirementsi). Candidates for admission into the Bachelor of Business Information Management (BINM) must satisfy the minimum common entrance requirement as stipulated by Egerton University Statutes.
