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.
MORE IMPACT AT IUGB
Our Spring community event gave all of our guests opportunities to make new friends, and all who attended learned a lot about how to jumpstart a dream career. Dr. Tullier and Ms. Primus proved their career building chops and provided fascinating career anecdotes as Amini Kajunju presented them with thought-provoking questions.
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.
IUGB English instructors held a meeting to discuss formation of a club for local English teachers on April 6, 2019, in IUGB’s meeting room. In all, 20 participants from local schools and IUGB attended.
