LAP Lambert Academic Publishing The book examines the factors that affect the internal efficiency of the regular masters degree programme, by coursework, examination and thesis of a Kenyan public university. The findings indicate that the programme had low internal efficiency levels in the area of submission rate, completion rates, the graduation rate, and the average years per graduate. The private cost increased for each marginal year. This lowered and threatened the benefits and the future of the programme . Among other factors the book indicates that the coursework content did not ground the students effectively for the research work and this affected the completion rate. Specific areas, which the students were not adequately prepared, included analytical skills, data analysis, writing skills and the theoretical framework. Supervision of students is discussed as a strong cause for low internal efficiency.
