The International University of Management (IUM) has embarked on expanding its infrastructure at some of their campuses countrywide due to its growing staff and student population.
The university's founder and chairperson Professor David Namwandi shared this today during the university's second and last graduation ceremony for 2022 at the Dorado campus in Windhoek. A total of 942 students graduated with different qualifications.
"As I am talking to you, the construction is ongoing in Ongwediva to upgrade those facilities. Equally, our university council has approved the construction of a multi-purpose center here at the cost of N$63 million in Windhoek," said Namwandi.
Namwandi added that a new campus for research is envisioned for Swakopmund and construction will commence in two weeks time. The facility will cost N$25 million, while they also plan to expand to Ohangwena region.
"Eenhana is a fast growing town in Namibia. This council has also decided to spread our wings on that side," he said.
The first convocation by IUM was held in May, bringing the total number of qualifications awarded this year to over 2300.
