Strategic Plan

This strategic plan (SP 2016-2020) for the International University of Grand-Bassam (IUGB) is the result of our second exercise in strategic planning. It builds on the previous one (SP 2011-2015) and sets the path to reach new heights of excellence, as we strive to deliver high-quality American-style education, producing well-rounded graduates open to the world and competently trained to contribute to the development of Côte d’Ivoire and the West Africa region.

The strategic plan was prepared in a participatory manner and benefitted from the contributions of University stakeholders (board members, management, professors and staff, students and employers). The process started with a critical analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of IUGB, as well as the opportunities and threats that helped refine the University’s vision, mission, core values, and guiding principles.

The strategic plan is built on six overarching goals: (1) Student Enrollment; (2) Infrastructure Development; (3) Financial Stability and Diversification of Funding Sources; (4) Internationalization of IUGB; (5) Institutional US Accreditation; and (6) Community Engagement. These goals will be served by thirteen strategic objectives and the plan expects thirty-six specific results.
