AUN: Africa’s Gateway to Global Grad Schools

As an associate member of the Association of American International Colleges and Universities, AUN provides its graduates with the knowledge needed to continue their educational pursuits both within as well as beyond the continent.

AUN has partnerships with John Cabot University in Italy, Eastern Mediterranean University in Cyprus, Oxford University in the UK, and Kansas State, George Mason, and Tulane Universities in the U.S.A. These international relationships make AUN most unusual in Nigeria.

AUN alums have gone on to pursue graduate degrees in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, France, Korea, and Switzerland, among others.  Their stories inspire us all.

Dooyum Malu is studying software management at the very prestigious Carnegie Mellon University, while Wisdom Omuya has graduated with a degree in computer science from Columbia University in New York.  They are just part of a growing crop of AUN graduates who have gone on to achieve great things.

After studying at Oxford University as part of the study abroad program, Cynthia Dieyi was recently accepted to the University of Southern California (USC), to work towards a graduate degree in Strategic Public Relations.

Teinye Akobo, who graduated in 2009, completed a Master’s degree in International Management at Bath University in the UK. He is currently working on a degree in law at Queen Mary University of London.

Joseph Ogbonna graduated from Tufts University with a Master of Public Health. Currently, he is the Project Manager for the Department of Quality and Patient Safety at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts.

After he graduated from AUN, Hamman Samuel received a graduate degree in computing science from the University of Alberta in Canada. He now works as a research assistant, and is close to completing a PhD at the same university.

The future looks bright for all AUN graduates. While many do not go to graduate school, they have other career prospects that set them apart from other Nigerian graduates.

Babatunde O. Johnson has been hired by McKinsey Nigeria, a global management consulting firm; Florence Young is an Economic Associate at the US Department of State, and Steven Prest works for McCormick & Company in Maryland.

What the future holds for AUN graduates is very exciting. In just a few short years, this University has proven itself an important training ground for Nigeria’s new young leaders. Our graduates' records speak for themselves.
