P12 - Caucasus University - CU

The history of Caucasus University goes back to 1998 when with US government funding and in cooperation with Georgia State University, the Caucasus School of Business (CSB) was established. Thus, the implementation of the first western-style education was launched in Georgia. Before long, Bachelor’s, Master’s and Ph.D. academic programs were started. It was in 2004 when the first private education institution - Caucasus University - was founded on the basis of the Caucasus School of Business.
Currently, Caucasus University has 10 schools (faculties): the School of Business (CSB), the School of Law (CSL), the School of Media (CSM), the School of Technology (CST), the School of Governance (CSG), the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (CSH), the School of Tourism (CTS), the School of Medicine and Healthcare Management (CMS), the School of Economics (CES) and the School of Education (CES).
Caucasus University aims to prepare professionals committed to the values of democracy and ethical norms and in this way contribute to society’s progress and knowledge-sharing. Most of the programs offered by the University are designed by taking into account successful international practices.
