Aga Khan University Report 2014
AKU was founded in 1983 as Pakistan’s first private, not-for-profit university. In 2000, it expanded to East Africa – where Aga Khan educational institutions have been present for more than a century – followed by the United Kingdom and Afghanistan. Today, the University has more than 2,300 students across campuses in six countries, including Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. Yet its growth over the last 15 years will pale beside that to come in the decade ahead, as AKU transforms itself into a comprehensive university offering liberal arts and graduate professional degrees that prepare students from the developing world to lead their societies toward a better future.
