The Ethiopian Civil Service University (ECSU) is a school of higher education in Ethiopia.


It was established in 1995 by the Ministry of Education with the mandate to meet the training needs of the Ethiopian Civil Service System and to carry out research.

ECSU is currently in the process of re-orienting its training programs to respond to the changing needs of the Ethiopian Civil Service System and the Civil Service Reform program. It has three campuses scattered across the capital city of Addis Ababa.[1]

It has post graduate programs in urban management, law, development economics and public financial management since 2007. The university had (and may still have)a low profile because it was blamed to admit and educate cadres of the incumbent ruling party. Leaving the validity of the notion aside, the University has fared well regarding the admissions, teaching-learning process, facilities...etc. Now, the facilities and the teaching learning process of the university are better or at least comparable to the "prestigeous" universities. For instance, postgraduate programs admit students based on tough admission criteria. to get admission to the postgrad programs, one has to take entrance exam which consists program related exam, English proeficiency exam, and Aptitude. This is probably the toughest entrance requirement in the HEI's of the country.
