By: Saint Monica University
"We want to re-assure our current and prospective students that Saint Monica University has the required permit to run over 50 undergraduate and graduate programs in Cameroon," said Professor Januarius Jingwa (JJ) Asongu, President and Chief Executive Officer of SMU. "We are going to comply with the Ministry's order not to train students at the level of the PhD in Cameroon."
It should be noted that Saint Monica University is an international university with operations in the United States, the United Kingdom and Cameroon. While we may not be allowed to operate certain programs in Cameroon, we have the authority to do so in other countries. We currently have partnerships with multiple universities in the United States, Mexico, Nicaragua, and British West Indies, where our students can earn accredited foreign degrees.
