Africa International University is a Christian university in Karen, Nairobi, Kenya.


Africa International University is founded in 1983 as the Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology through the vision of the Association of Evangelicals in Africa.[1] The goal was to provide training for pastors beyond the basic certificate and diploma levels.

In March 2011, AIU was awarded a university charter by the government of Kenya and has continued to develop undergraduate programs, particularly in business, ICT, Development Studies and Counselling Psychology.
