Bay University

Bay University was established on 5th April 2013 as an institute of higher learning to foster academic excellence. The pioneers and the ideal personnel of this great and fruitful institution were youthful professors with diverse educational backgrounds including but not limited to Engineers and Doctors who possessed their credential from high ranking universities at home country and abroad overseas.

The aftermath of Somalia’s long running conflicts which lasted more than two decades have destroyed the country’s assets including education infrastructures throughout the country. These prolonged civil conflicts in Somalia have fostered a lost generation who has no experience of a kind of effective government and poor access to basic social services particularly education and employment opportunities, which cause Somalia to be in the last position in the world’s ranking in terms of education
Thus, we step in with the intention of overcoming the above stated situation, in regard we decided to establish/unwrap University of Bay to provide a quality education.
