A.D.U. is an innovative not-for-profit university in Niger. Founded in October 2017, A.D.U. currently offers undergraduate programs, an MBA program, and executive courses. Over the next decade, A.D.U. aspires to become the hub of innovation and excellence in higher education in West Africa. A.D.U. was established to address two of the most pressing problems facing the region:

• The dearth of quality tertiary educational institutions.
• The increasing cohort of young adults unprepared for participation and leadership in the 21st-century workforce.

Our desire to train a new generation of skilled, ethical leaders is motivated by our commitment to advance Niger’s development and improve living standards for all. We ultimately aim to advance the development of countries throughout the region and raising the standard of living across the region.
