Questionnaires were administered by issuing to the respondent and picking as they finish using 'drop and pick later' method. Analysis of the Data indicated that opinion leadership plays a key role in enrolment of MBA students in the university of Nairobi. Other factors like consumer buying behaviours, reputation of University, quality of education, the credibility lecturers and adequacy of amenities were also found to either affect positively or negatively the enrolment of students. The case study was based on a restricted population of MBA students and it may be erroneous to extend the findings to other disciplines.
