Good discipline is an essential component to success not only in academics, but also in many spheres of life, at Embu College we emphasize on societal values and morality, we aim to guide our students to be of good conduct in and after college.
At Embu College, we believe in professionalism, a student should embody the selfless nature of leadership in their daily life. This will reflect in their work as a team member, it will be conveyed through professionalism, quality service delivery, innovation, creativity and commitment to duty.
In everything, we do in Embu College, we seek divine intervention and believe that the power of prayer strengthens our desire to succeed. Since its inception the institution has been dedicated to support religious societies for spiritual nourishment.
Over the past two decades Embu College has been at the forefront in ensuring that tertiary training is readily accessible at affordable cost for thousands of young people. Many of our Former Students are in jobs and businesses that are socio-economically transforming this country.

As encapsulated in H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Big Four Agenda, the leadership of our country aspires for rapid industrialization of the country in pursuit of the twin goals of accelerated and sustainable development, and creating employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for the youth. an efficient,motivated and well-trained public and private workforce is essential to the realization of Kenya Vision 2030. These nation goals and strategies provide the strategic thrust and priorities of the programs and courses that Embu College will either strengthen, or develop and introduce in coming years.
Embu College is where it is today because of the dedicated efforts of the parents, the students, the staff, management and leadership over the years. I am proud and gratified for the concerted and collaborative contributions that everyone in the College’s fraternity continues to make. There is nothing that gives me as much personal satisfaction as when: I meet a past parent, past student, past lecturer, past Principal, etc. in such places as the streets of Nairobi and they make an observation about “OUR” college. The College’s success is also to a significant degree attributable to the cooperation and support that we have enjoyed over the years from the local community (especially our Blue Valley residents), our County and National Government agencies in Embu (especially those in education and security roles), our neighboring education institutions (including primary and secondary schools, University of Embu, etc.) and local businesses. On this note, I take this opportunity to thank all these stakeholders because they each have made an invaluable contribution to successfully and joyfully get us to this Far.
Embu College was established in 1995 with only a handful of lecturers and 18 Accounting and Secretarial students. The college was then located on the 2nd floor of a leased premises (Njigoru Building) in Embu town. In 2003, we moved to our current premises; 300 Meters behind Embu Law Courts off the Embu–Meru highway. Today, Embu College boasts of modern facilities and equipment, our student population has also increased and currently stands at more than 1,800 not to mention dozens of staffs. The institution has also diversified its academic programs to equip our students face the dynamic job market.
We are dedicated to continuous improvement of research and teaching activities, as well as in establishing an active role in the development of businesses and industries in Kenya through attachment programs and partnership with various stakeholders. We are committed to continually pursue and strengthen links with multinational and international organizations for enhancement of quality learning, innovation and knowledge.
