1. Bachelor of Commerce plus CPA/CFA/ACCA/CIFA- Bachelor of Commerce remains one of the most marketable courses in Kenya. But before you decide to enroll for the business course ensure you also enroll for a professional course.

The growth of social media and the development of mobile apps have created opportunity for software engineers to find a place in Kenya. Web Designers have not been left behind either; they have several opportunities related to web design and management as several Kenyans opt to start websites to have their presence on the internet.

The two courses go hand in hand and they are regarded as the best in the Kenyan job market. There are several wonderful opportunities for Architectures and Structural Engineers in Kenya.
Nursing and pharmacy are courses you cannot overlook when picking a nice course that would give you a better life in future.The best thing with these two courses is that even if you are not lucky to get a job you can employ yourself.

GIS deals with spatial analysis and mapping. GIS is the idea behind Google Earth and Google Maps. This is a rare course in Kenya which you should do everything to pursue. It’s so marketable that any graduate spotted with the qualifications is offered a job without applying for one.
Statistics is both marketable at undergraduate and Masters Level. The professionals in this career are well paid and it’s rare to find a statistics graduate being jobless. The average salary for a fresh statistics graduate is Ksh75, 000.
These two courses are also marketable but Civil Engineering is better because it has more opportunities than Electrical Engineering
