The International University of Management (IUM) which has its roots in the Institute of Higher Education (IHE) was founded in 1993. This is a home grown Namibian initiative that started with one student and metamorphosed into an establishment catering for over 1,000 (one thousand) students with a main campus in the capital Windhoek and branches in Swakopmund, Ongwediva and Walvis-Bay.
Following the establishment of IHE, the institute quickly gained recognition as a centre of excellence for the teaching of management subjects and carried out numerous consultancies for both the private and public sectors in Namibia . The Management courses were offered on behalf of international, professional, and academic institutions.
On 26 October 2002, IUM was officially launched by the then State President of the Republic of Namibia , His Excellency Dr. Sam Nujoma. The university is fully accredited by the NQA (Namibia Qualifications Authority).
