OUR IMPACT

IUGB provides critical higher education opportunities to male and female students. In a region where only 8% of eligible students are enrolled, we’re working to close this gap.

An IUGB Student says

I will always be grateful to everyone at IUGB for making my life a success and for continuously supporting me. Naturally, I want a PhD so that I can join important organizations like the World Bank Group, where my future work on policy issues can have as much impact as possible.”

Expanding our Campus Buildings and Infrastructure

IUGB’s growth has been rapid and shows no signs of slowing. From 17 students in 2007, the University now has 809 enrolled. This growth is expected to triple in the next ten years. To address this crucial need, IUGB is seeking financing and strategic partners for state-of-the art facilities to house our students and our academic programs.

A Message from the IUGB Foundation Executive Director (May 2019)

Early in April, IUGB and the IUGB Foundation were invited to participate in the Mo Ibrahim Foundation Governance Week in Abidjan. It is an annual conversation with a different theme each year. On this occasion the theme was Africa’s youth job migration. Our students were part of the Now Generation conversation and showed initiative and purpose in their participation.
