About Kenya Institute of Business Training (KIBT)
Kenya Institute of Business Training (KIBT) was established after a survey conducted in 1965 by the then Ministry of Economic Planning and Development, which revealed that African entrepreneurs and managers were very few. This was because most of entrepreneurial and managerial activities were the preserve of the European and Asian Communities who controlled the economy.
KIBT was established in 1966 with the assistance of ILO/UNDP. Prior to 1980 the Institute was known as Management Training and Advisory Center (MT&AC) and its mandate was to train and develop African managers and entrepreneurs in practical business management skills.
In 1980, it was renamed Kenya Institute of Business Training (KIBT). And currently, the Institute is a department in the office of the Deputy Prime Minister & Ministry of Trade.
The Institute has over the years played a major role in assisting MSME operators in starting, developing and sustaining their business through our business development services (BDS) conducted all over the country.
Between 1980 and 1987 Regional Business Training Centers were established in Mombasa, Kisumu, Nakuru, Nyeri and Nairobi in order to take the small business training and extension services to existing and potential small and medium business person in the rural areas. In 1987/88 the centers were however abolishes due to inadequate funds to run them.
