Founder Hon Dr. David Richard Namwandi
The Institution was founded by Dr David Richard Namwandi, first as a non-degree awarding body. On 26 October 2002 it obtained University status when it was officially launched by the then state president of the Republic of Namibia, His Excellency Dr. Sam Nujoma. The university is fully accredited by the NQA (Namibia Qualifications Authority).
Although Dr Namwandi is no longer part of the IUM management, his legacy and vision lives on. His footprints will be a guide to IUM and will certainly propel the University to greater heights.
