Mount Kigali University (MKUR) is a leading citadel of teaching, research and academic excellence at the heart of Kigali in Rwanda. The University started as a Campus of Mount Kenya University in 2010 and has since grown into a fully-fledged university accredited by the Rwanda Higher Education Council under the Ministry of Education. Today, the Board of Directors of MKUR have invested in excess of 10 billion Rwandan Francs on establishing post-modern infrastructure including well equipped laboratories, administration offices, teaching and learning facilities, a library, hostels, and recreational facilities. 

The strategic foundation of MKUR is embedded in delivery of quality education in pursuit of realizing competent and employable graduates.
