Kardan University (Pashto: کاردان پوهنتون‎ / Persian: دانشگاه کاردان‎‎) founded in 2003 in Kabul, Afghanistan is the first privately owned university in Afghanistan.[1]

It began its operation in a small classroom with 15 students in a country that was experiencing privatization in higher education for the first time. It has over 15,000 alumni as of 2014. The university quickly became one of the largest private higher education institutions in the country and later elevated to university status by the Ministry of Education.

Kardan University offers courses in the disciplines of Management Sciences, Information Technology, Engineering, and Social Sciences at the graduate level, and Business Administration and International Relations at the masters level. Kardan University has two campuses in Kabul city.
