Mogadishu University

The idea to establish an educational institution started in June 1997, after which time it took five years to develop and open the university. It opened in September 1997 as a non-governmental, non-profit institution for higher learning, governed by a Board of Trustees and a University Council.

Mogadishu University has relocated its activities to its Main campus on the outskirts of Mogadishu.

The main campus in Mogadishu was initiated with the assistance of the Islamic Development Bank, among other donors. In 2008, Mogadishu University opened another campus in Bosaso in the northeastern Puntland state of Somalia, which recently formed into an independent University called Red Sea University in Somalia.

The institution has been invited to join the Somali Aid Coordination Body (SACB) Educational Sector Committee. On 21 September 2004, the MU representatives Mr Fathudin Mohamed, Westley Bii and Hussein M. Iman (MU Program Director) attended the SACB Educational Sector Committee meeting in Nairobi, Kenya.

Two delegates from MU, Dr. Abdurahman Moalim Abdullahi, the Chairman of Board of Trustees and Dr Abdullahi Farah Asseyr, MD, Adviser of the President and Head of faculty of Health Sciences Affairs at MU, paid a 10-day visit to Norway during which they signed a partnership agreement with the University of Tromso.
