IUGB offers a safe and enjoyable academic and social environment for personal and professional success for all of our students.

IUGB offers academic and social support unlike any other institution in Côte d’Ivoire. In addition to academic advising and other resources, we have a health office and professionals on hand to help with our students’ physical and emotional needs.
