School of Graduate Studies

Thank you for your interest in graduate study at the American University of Nigeria. Coming to AUN for graduate study will almost certainly be one of the most important decisions you will ever make. The American University of Nigeria was founded for a higher purpose: to be Africas development university. The AUN Graduate School plays a key role in fulfilling that mission. Our Graduate School’s vision is to deliver research with the highest possible impact on the human condition, particularly in areas of information technology, business and entrepreneurship, and in applied development.

No nation has ever achieved its true potential without first developing an ambitious research and innovation program. We see our mission as inextricably linked to the future of the African continent. That is why we have built a vibrant and world-class research community at AUN with a deep consciousness of our role in the future of the continent. Our location in the beautiful and serene city of Yola in northeast Nigeria gives us a unique perspective and an opportunity for applied research across disciplines.

I encourage you to join us. Bring your dreams, bring your passion and enthusiasm, for here you will find the tools and community to turn your dreams into Africa’s future. I am incredibly proud of our Graduate School, students, and esteemed faculty. Come and join the vibrant intellectual community they have created.
