We exemplify our commitment to balance innovative ideas and theories with real-world application.

KIM University is a decade old institution which traces its origins to a 2005 decision by the Board of Directors that transformed the International College of Accountancy and Management (ICAM) into a degree awarding Institution. This gave birth to Kigali Institute of Management (KIM). By the beginning of 2016 KIM transformed itself into KIM University.
