College of Management and Leadership – Bishoftu Campus

Background

Background
The former Ethiopian Evangelical College (EEC) at Debrezeit/Bishoftu was established in 1949 on an area of 34,770 sq. meters provided by the government. The college was one among the best colleges in Ethiopia, delivering a High School education program (grade 9-12) and a teachers Training program at college level until its confiscation by the Communist Derge Regime in 1984. It was a boarding school accommodating over 150 students coming from different parts of the country through synods. After a lot of hard work by successive leaders of the church, the compound together with its facilities was returned to the church in 2011.

The church’s 7th Council had decided and endorsed to re-arrange the compound and its premises to deliver education for the public at large. In the meantime, the idea of establishing Mekane Yesus University (a church-affiliated institution of higher learning) was born of the EECMY’s desire to expand the impact of the church’s commitment to serve the public at large. The conceived vision was brought to the attention of the 16th General Assembly. The Assembly thoroughly discussed the matter and decided that MY-MLC should grow to MYU by adding more disciplines and upgrading its programs gradually to Master and doctorate levels both at Mekanisa and Bishoftu campuses.

Bishoftu campus has secured accreditation from pertinent government body to launch higher education at bachelor’s degree level in Accounting & Finance and Management fields of study as of October of 2018. In addition, the campus provides, a tutorial service for high school students known as Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Academy where we provide tutorial service in STEM fields for more than 60 students per year. The campus also provides a one-year leadership training program for women known as Women Institute and center (WIAC) working with the women ministry department of the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus (EECMY). Currently, work is in progress to begin Technical and Vocational Educational Training (TVET) programs during academic year 2020/2021.
