International University of Grand-Bassam
Grand-Bassam, Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast)


University description (as per official university website)

The International University of Grand Bassam is envisioned as a Regional Center of Excellence that will help educate and train the human capital required for sustained growth and development in West Africa. Graduates of the IUGB will be well prepared to participate and to assume leadership roles in the global society.

The IUGB is a privately governed institution, organized under the laws of the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire as a non-profit organization. It operates as an autonomous institution and its non-profit status makes the University eligible for public grants and other funding from the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire, other countries, international organizations and the private sector.

The University was officially established by Presidential Charter on May 16, 2007 as published in the Official Journal of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire.


The Mission of the International University of Grand-Bassam is to provide internationally recognized higher education through technology-enhanced English medium instruction in fields critical to regional development, international success and life-long learning.


Promoting quality, excellence and equal access without regard to social standing, ethnic or racial identity, national origin, religion or gender.

Following the American model of higher education in all aspects including the use of information technology.

Attracting and retaining the best students and providing financial aid to assist needy students.

Offering academic programs that respond to local and regional economic development and employment needs.

Moving toward financial self-sufficiency through tuition, fees and aggressive fundraising.

Internationalizing the institution by incorporating international content and programs in the curriculum and through partnerships with universities and other institutions around the world.

Encouraging understanding and tolerance and fostering principles of non-violent conflict resolution.


The impetus for the International University of Grand-Bassam came more than a decade ago, when the government of Côte d’Ivoire began to look at ways to reform its higher education system to offer more of its citizens and those of the West African sub-region access to higher education opportunities.

An important first step was to team up with Georgia State University in Atlan, Goergio. In 1994 "Project Link" was initiated to facilitate faculty and student exchange and teacher training, and to enhance academic programs in business, human resources development and education. Through Project Link, relationships were established with several higher education institutions in Côte d’Ivoire such as Ecole Normale Supérieure, the University of Cocody and the National Polytechnic Institute.

Building on the experience of Project Link, in 1998 Côte d’Ivoire and Georgia State signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work on establising an International University in Côte d’Ivoire modeled on the American style of higher education.

Despite political challenges in Côte d’Ivoire in 1999 and 2000, Georgia State and the Agency for Education and Development (AED), a non-governmental organization in Côte d’Ivoire established to sponsor and raise funds for the new institution, continued working together.

In 2004-2005, the Côte d’Ivoire/Georgia State University partnership celebrated important milestones as the two-year curriculum of the International University of Grand-Bassam (IUGB) was established and the university's first eight students started classes in January 2005. In three short years, IUGB enrollment has grown to 145, and the university will soon launch an ambitious five-year business plan that sets an enrollment goal of approximately 1,200 by 2014.
