About the Campus

The Institution was founded by Dr David Richard Namwandi, first as a non-degree awarding body. On 26 October 2002 it obtained University status when it was officially launched by the then state president of the Republic of Namibia, His Excellency Dr. Sam Nujoma. The university is fully accredited by the Namibia Qualifications Authority and the National Council for Higher Education(NCHE).

The Main Campus offers students a wide variety of study options. These include academic programmes at Certificates, Diplomas, Bachelor Degrees, Bachelor Honours, Masters and PhD. It has female student accommodation, teaching and research facilities, and leisure activities all together. The Campus also offers a myriad of opportunities for student engagement and support.

The International University of Management (IUM) has its roots in the Institute of Higher Education which was founded in 1993 and is a sole Namibian initiative which started with one student and has now grown into an institution whose student population is currently more that 9,000. 

The intellectual and vocational bases of the university are firmly rooted in Management and ICT.Since its inception, the university has gained recognition as a centre of excellence for the teaching of Management Science and ICT disciplines at all levels.

While these disciplines remain the university’s anchor, plans are afoot to diversify its offerings at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in the not too distant future in order to address different economic needs of management in Namibia. In addition, the university has carried out numerous consultancies on behalf of both the private and public sectors in Namibia.
IUM was officially launched as the first private university in Namibia on 26 April 2002 and its Hi-Tech campus at Dorado Park in Windhoek was inaugurated on 26 April 2011.
