Our university will provide a distinct educational experience while fostering innovation, research, and sustainable outcomes.”
The university is located in Amizi, Ikwuano Local Government Area of Abia State. The cultural richness and lush topography of the environment offers an ideal setting for learning.
The university’s faculties and departments will cover various fields of study, ensuring a comprehensive and well-rounded education for its students. Additionally, the institution aims to foster academic, sporting and social linkages with other universities across the globe, further enriching the learning experience.
According to Prof. Akaneren Essien, Chairman of the university’s Planning and Implementation Committee: “Education is a powerful tool for empowerment and positive change. Through Amadeus University, we aspire to produce globally competitive graduates who will drive socioeconomic development with meaningful results.
