Botho University is Botswana’s largest private tertiary education provider, founded in 1997. The institution has grown over time from a single discipline college to a multi-disciplinary university offering quality undergraduate programmes and some graduate studies through five faculties of Business and Accounting, Computing, Hospitality and Sustainable Tourism, Engineering and Applied Sciences, and Health and Education. Programme development draws significantly from industry input to ensure relevance. Some professional programmes are also offered in Accounting. BU also offers a range of short term corporate training programmes to public and private sector organisations. Botho University has campuses in Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Eswatini where it is duly registered and accredited by the relevant higher education regulatory authorities. In addition to the physical campuses, a number of programmes are also available through the Blended and Distance Learning campus. Botho University aspires to be an integral player in building an economically diversified, fast growing, and prosperous Africa built on integrity, excellence, inclusiveness and financial viability; with a mission to produce well-rounded, entrepreneurial, and globally-employable graduates with the knowledge, skills and competencies to create value and drive productivity increases needed to catalyse sustainable economic growth.
