IUGB is committed to providing academic excellence and opportunity for all students seeking a US-modeled undergraduate degree.

The School of Business and Social Sciences (BSS) provides high quality education in business, information systems and political science. IUGB’s STEM school is a response to high demand for graduates in scientific and technology areas in the West African region.

IUGB offers a University Preparatory Program (UPP) to students needing additional training in Math and/or English in order to be admitted to an undergraduate degree program. We offer this program so our students can achieve success when taking the TOEFL and SAT exam or its equivalent.
