We at Kotebe Metropolitan University have been proud of 60 years academic tradition. In the rapidly changing era, as one of the core Universities, we were the Mark of Teacher Education in the Nation.

 At current, as the only Metropolitan University in Ethiopia, we are making efforts in order to pace with all rounded teaching and learning programs tuned to the demand of our City per se. In the fast changing global economic environment, Kotebe Metropolitan University has plans to strive to bring urban perspective to all its programs and activities. Latest technologies will be employed for effective delivery and the curriculum emphasizes practice orientation in its entire curriculum.

 Our university is planning to lead in many areas of critical research and creative endeavour, and our colleges, faculties and centers are committed to bring a high quality of education in order to sustain our urban development programs in addition to inspiring teacher education. We offer our students a research-enriched education that is complemented by work-integrated learning opportunities, making it among the best in Africa.

 We believe our deep commitment to and leadership in community engagement should make a difference in the lives of people in Addis Ababa City in particular and our country in general. Our motto “Committed to Sustainable Urban Development” represents our collective aim to achieve world-class results in all our pursuits.

I believe that now is the time to press forward with KMU’s traditional enterprising spirit to address the many challenges our City now faces.
