The College of Human Resource Management (CHRM) is a leading middle-level academic institution in Kenya that is committed to developing the human resource required for the management of people at the workplace, in both the public and private sectors of the economy. Hence, our courses aim at preparing and equipping students with the required knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be able to deliver HR services at various hierarchical levels of the organization. 

From the feedback received from employing organizations and other stakeholders, CHRM graduates have been found suitable in carrying out a wide range of strategic and operational activities in the human resource (HR) function. It is therefore not surprising that a good number of the graduates hold senior positions in the industry and the public service. Others are offering HR training and consultancy services as independent consultants to meet the rising demand for such services.

CHRM is located in the Nairobi Central Business District (Campuses on the Ufundi Coop Plaza, 1st, 3rd & 4th Floors, and 3rd floor of Caxton House). It offers courses from Certificate, Diploma, Higher Diploma levels as well as Certified Professional programs in both HR Management and other Business Management related programs. These are examined and certified externally both locally and internationally by Examination Bodies like HRMPEB, KNEC, KASNEB, KISM, CIC-UK, and most recently the security programs by CDACC. 

Also located in the Ufundi Coop Plaza on the 4th floor, is the very specialized award-winning William Gitobu Memorial Library, named after the first Executive Director of the Institute.  The Library has several information resources, which can be grouped as Books, Electronic Journals, print journals, as well as CDs/DVDs. As a center of intellectual human resource management (HRM) inquiry, the CHRM William Gitobu Memorial Library aspires to be the most dynamic learning resources environment and a leading library in HRM and related areas. The Library ensures that its collection remains forward-looking, diverse in breadth and form, up-to-date, and of world-renowned quality. Through the CHRM website ( the Library makes people aware of the resources available to them, and through innovation, it makes access to these resources easier.

The College of Human Resource Management (CHRM) offers flexible study modes to meet all the student's needs at their convenience. Some classes are on a full-time basis while others are on a part-time. Part-time study options include sunrise (6:30am - 8:00am) class, lunch hour, evenings (5:30pm - 8:00pm) and Saturdays only classes. Another mode of study is distance learning whereby students are provided with learning resources to read at their own convenience. Whichever mode of study the students select, they are expected to take both external and internal examinations to test their mastery of the knowledge and skills acquired. The flexible approach to the transfer of knowledge has enabled CHRM to produce professionally qualified HR professionals who are providing required HR services to meet the needs of employing organizations.

Vision: To be a Centre of  Excellence in Leadership Development, Research, Innovation, and Training.

Mission: To provide quality academic and professional training, promoting excellence in research and integrating learning and innovation.
