Our Impact

Our Impact

Kepler graduates enter the world of work as effective professionals, many of them getting job offers before completing their studies. Our robust internship program prepares them with the professional skills and the confidence needed to build a fulfilling career in the formal sector. 

The impact of meaningful and steady employment goes beyond the individual. Many Kepler graduates are the first in their family to have a formal job and support family members by paying for education expenses and other needs. Graduates become role models in their communities promoting the direct impact of higher education.

Kepler is committed to sharing our learnings with the broader higher education community in Rwanda and East Africa. We support other institutions strengthen their employment outcomes through rigorous professional skill training. Kepler’s example continues to increase interest in cutting-edge pedagogical approaches such as blended learning, student-centered learning, and competency-based learning.
