Our History

World economies are in crises today because in many countries business, labor and government are led by corrupt people who lack the character and vision for nation building and development of a better world for the institutions and the people that they lead. The International Leadership University (ILU) exists, therefore, for the purpose of developing and educating future leaders of integrity and vision who will become world-changers and lead transformation in every facet of society.

ILU is a network of accredited universities, colleges, schools and ministries in Africa that has the common purpose and mission of educating and producing emerging national leaders of integrity and vision. ILU’s network comprises of the following institutions; the African Centre for Theological Studies (ACTS, Nigeria), Africa Leadership and Management Academy (ALMA-in Ghana and Zimbabwe), Nairobi International School of Theology (NIST, Kenya), ILU-Burundi and Institut Facultaire De Théologie Appliquée (IFTA, Congo).
