The Faculty of Commerce, CUEA has been ranked among the top four business schools in Kenya as a ‘2 palmes of excellence - Good business school with strong regional influence’ in 2014 by Eduniversal.
The Faculty, stood out among three other Kenyan academic institutions who were among the best 1,000 business schools in 154 countries. These are, Strathmore Business School, University of Nairobi School of Business and the USIU School of Business. These were ranked position one to three in Kenya respectively as 3 palmes of excellence - Excellent business schools with reinforcing international influence.

The Eduniversal system rates schools according to their international reputation at a national and global level, and by geographical zone. After their selection, they are divided within each country into five levels of excellence which Eduniversal titles the Palme of Excellence. A Palme level is awarded to each school based on a set of internationalization criteria developed by the International Scientific Committee. These schools are then ranked within each Palme level according to the assessment made by peers: The Deans vote.
The announcement was made on October 22, 2014, during the 7th Eduniversal World Convention with 250 Deans and Directors from the prestigious and best Business Schools in the World such as Harvard Business School, London Business School, Copenhagen Business School, etc gathered.

More than 120 Schools from 60 countries participated in this one‐off event to promote the internationalization of Higher Education & student mobility.

The Eduniversal official selection is the result of an evaluation work done by the International Scientific Committee, composed of nine independent expert members who are highly experienced and who are prominent personalities in the academic field of their particular zone. The objective is to establish a global mapping system that would take into account the international influence and reputation of each academic institution.

For the ranking of the best 1000 business schools, the system determines, from thousands of different business schools, which business schools from 154 countries will be selected for the ranking. And the number of schools selected per country is determined according to a quota method using both quantitative and qualitative criteria.
