The institution is the Secretariat for Africa's only Association of Hospitality and Tourism Schools (AHTSA) which has a membership of more than 27 Hospitality schools drawn from over 15 countries. It is also an East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) accredited Center of Excellence in Hospitality and Tourism training.
KUC is renowned for providing world class training for the Hospitality and Tourism industry both locally and internationally. One of the strategies we have put in place is collaboration with other reputable training institutions, both local and international, to help us deliver our mandate: Training for the Hospitality and Tourism industry.
The institutions include some of the world's best Hospitality and Tourism training institutions such as the Manchester Metropolitan University, UK, Makerere University, Uganda and Dr. Livingstone International University of Tourism Excellence & Business Management (LIUTEBM), Zambia. Locally the College has partnered with one of the leading public Universities, University of Nairobi, in offering two degree programs; Bachelor of Arts in Hospitality Management and Bachelor of Arts in Travel and Tourism Management. The two programmes have boosted the provision of quality training in the Hospitality and Tourism industry. They have attracted scores of new entrants with interest for professional training in the Hospitality and Tourism industry. In order to meet the ever growing demand, the College is preparing itself to start offering e-learning in the near future.
Increased linkages between the College and the Hospitality and Tourism industry stakeholders has seen most KUC graduates get internships and jobs in leading establishments within the industry. The institution is closely linked to the industry through the Tourism industry/Kenya Utalii College Liaison Committee. Some of the institution's alumni have secured jobs internationally, regionally and locally- a move that re-affirms Kenya Utalii College's position as a market leader in Hospitality and Tourism training in Africa.
