Student life

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. Its main purpose is to create co-curricular activities and recreational opportunities for the students. We aim to enhance the personal and professional growth of the students and complement their academic life.

Where are we from?

IUGB Students come from a variety of countries, including Nigeria, Togo, Benin, Morocco, Ghana, Kenya and the USA.
