The American University of Iraq – Baghdad (AUIB) is a not-for-profit University that opened its doors in January 2021. AUIB began as a dream of influential individuals in Iraq and United States business, industry and government who want to see a world-class institution of higher learning established in Baghdad, reminiscent of the days when the city was an educational and cultural mecca and the flourishing capital of the Muslim world. AUIB follows in the tradition of three historical institutions in Baghdad: The House of Wisdom, al-Nizamiyah Madrasah, often described as “the largest university in the medieval world,” and al-Mustansiriyah Madrasah. The vision of AUIB is to become a comprehensive university, internationally recognized for research and teaching, thought leaders on contemporary issues that benefit the public and preserve the heritage and culture of Iraq, while preparing entrepreneurial, innovative graduates to meet the demands and the challenges of Iraq’s economic and social development in an increasingly dynamic and diverse world.
