The AIU Experience

About AIU

Officially being incorporated in 2019, American International University (AIU) is a privately owned and funded, coeducational university located in Kuwait. Members of the inaugural leadership team have designed this new institution with a US Higher Education style, with a particular commitment to educating the next generation of Kuwaiti leaders.

AIU seeks innovative and creative institutional leaders, who are excited by the opportunity to be part of our team by bringing years of experience with US higher education methodology into this international setting.

American International University educates and serves the people of Kuwait.  AIU’s mission is to provide high-quality, relevant, and varied educational programs and opportunities for the intellectual, cultural, and personal growth of all members of its community. To achieve this mission, AIU provides an educational experience and curriculum that is based on the American model of higher education. 

Our diverse academic offerings, general education requirements as part of all majors, open inquiry and rigorous academic expectations, assure academic excellence and allow students to reach their full potential as ethical and responsible learners and leaders. The University values its role as an educational leader that promotes individual development and improves the overall quality of life in a diverse community.  


American International University is owned by the Ali Al-Alghanim LLC Group (Owners Group). A member of the Owners Group serves as the Chair of the Board of Trustees of AIU.  The creation of AIU builds on the success of the American Baccalaureate School, a K-12 school started by the Owners Group in 2006, also in Kuwait.
