Our New Brand
Our rebranding, from Kigali Institute of Management to KIM University, signals our new strategic orientation. The acronym KIM encapsulates our strategic intent. As a University we strive to provide knowledge (“K”) suffused with the skill sets and requisite competencies that the market requires. Our programs are market responsive and inspire (“I”) creativity and a sense of self-worth in our students, and motivate (“M”) them to attain their dreams in life. To align of processes and get KIM on a steady path of creativity, the board has approved a new senior post of DVC Innovation, Research and Development.
Our mission is to educate and nurture talented and motivated men and women – through quality undergraduate, graduate and professional executive education programs – to become successful, creative and innovative professionals and enable them excel in their chosen professions and to lead rewarding lives.
We aspire to be recognized widely as the premier university providing exemplary programs which integrate academic excellence with professional competence to achieve socio-economic transformation.

This accounts for the reason why KIM stands for Skills for Competence.

I'm going to start with a controversial opinion; I loved it here in KIM University campus. But it wasn't always easy to. It wasn't easy to read all those long books. It wasn't easy to learn all those long words. It wasn't easy to wake up for all those early classes.
And it certainly wasn't easy when we saw none other than very few students from our accounting class in the Accounting professional exams (CPA). But KIM University showed me that if it something was easy, it was probably boring. And if I wasn't being pushed, I was probably approaching it the wrong way. We were not held by the hand. We were not coddled. We endured.
Like Sophie Nunbers; my motto in KIM University was, ?Let me Stand for something, or I will fall for anything." The chase for my dreams will not stop, will not stagger, will not dry up and will not die. My dream would not be a reality if it were not for my incredible University and especially my wonderful teachers here in campus who has stood in the gaps for me when I felt too weak to fight for my own dream.
Finally, I would like to thanks Chairman of Board of Directors (BoD) Mr. RUTAREMARA Peter sent best wishes and wish KIM University can uphold the concept of innovation, forge ahead, in the wave of the future development, have been able to become a leader in the education industry, to better serve the people in the East Africa, to create a higher accounting professional value!Read Less
