Our Impact–Student Success Stories

Since opening its doors to 13 students in 2005 and operating continuously through nearly a decade of conflict in Cote d’Ivoire that ended in May with the inauguration of President Quattara, the University is already seeing the impact of its educational vision and model. Through the links below, we summarize a few examples of the positive impact IUGB is making through its students and as a new private higher education institution modeling academic excellence, accountability and opportunity for institutions in the country and throughout the sub-region.

Here we highlight the accomplishments of former IUGB students. These young people benefited from the quality education provided by IUGB, and distinguished themselves beyond their country’s borders. Their testimonies are inspiring and document the impact of IUGB on their lives and the global community.
