International Leadership University


About this center

In response to a growing need for a graduate level theological institution in Kenya, the International Leadership University (ILU) was established in 1980 by the Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC) International with the mission to educate and train Christ-like visionary leaders to spearhead holistic transformation in Africa and the world. Through the years, the University has endeavoured to maintain a distinct emphasis on a balanced and integrated approach to academic excellence, character formation, field ministry orientation, and transformational leadership development and strives to always be a world-class institution by offering affordable and flexible Certificate, Diploma, Bachelor, Masters and PhD programmes led by passionate, knowledgeable, and experienced lecturers. 

Situated five kilometres from Nairobi's city centre, in a quiet and serene neighbourhood on Mtito Andei Road, the International Leadership University provides a peaceful and conducive learning environment for students, so as to equip them for a life of learning, leadership, and service by integrating faith and education, and empowering graduates to excel and positively impact their world for Jesus Christ. In all programmes that the institution offers, emphasis is placed on keeping to their mission and values including dependence on God, passion for the Great Commission, moral integrity, passion for excellence and contextual relevance. For the past thirty eight years, the school has nurtured and equipped Christian leaders with a Biblical worldview to serve and lead in the Church and the world. 

We offer: 

  • Affordable and flexible Certificate, Diploma, Bachelor, Master, and PhD programmes to suit all lifestyles and needs. 
  • Hope Counselling Centre (HCC) to provide psychological support to students, staff, organisations, and members of the local and international communities in Kenya. 
  • Free student membership to our well-stocked Allendorf Memorial Library 
  • Open, Distance and Electronic Learning (ODEL), an alternative mode of instruction that provides learners with an opportunity to access education without physically attending classes (intakes are January, May, and August of each year). 

Today, ILU strives to meet the contemporary needs of students by designing a Christ-centred curriculum that not only prepares them for their chosen profession, but also gives them the knowledge and desire to live out their faith in the modern world.
