Rector Message

Welcome to East Africa University (EAU)
As the chancellor of East Africa University, I am proud of our dynamic quality-oriented academic program, which is an opportunity
for post-secondary students.

EAU is the largest university in the Somali peninsula as it has seven branches both in the Somali Federal Republic and in Somaliland. I would like to take this opportunity to share our success story with you, whether the student is a current student, prospective student, a parent, a stakeholder, or one of our alumni. This booklet will allow us to present our success and the many positive changes taking place at this University.

Our institution is prepared to produce competent and highly skilled graduates that gain national and international recognition. Our success is the result of our strong academic foundation based on new era technology. As has been locally and internationally accredited, we are enforced to maintain and upgrade the quality reputation of our institution.

We have substantial evidence that supports our mission of ‘quality education’. For instance, during 2005 our students who finished their degree programs achieved
superior positions in both public and private systems. Others obtained post-graduate admission from internationally recognized universities in Britain, Australia, the United States, India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Egypt, Kenya, Uganda, South Africa, Sudan, and Yemen.

We attract qualified lecturers locally and internationally who are dedicated to enhancing our institution and are devoted to keeping up our success in academic culture and values. Our goal is to increase our students’ academic ability and enable them to have a more productive career and a better future. Our achievements are the result of a variety of activities that is set for the students to accept challenges and responsibilities.
