The University of Namibia (UNAM) is a leading public, higher education institution in the country.  With a student population of close to 10,000 students each year, academic programmes at the University emanate from the seven faculties of agriculture and natural resources, economics and management science, education, humanities and social sciences, law, medical and health sciences and the faculty of science.  A young but yet dynamic and committed faculty and competent administrative support staff has earned UNAM a ranking of being one the top African Universities.  During 2006, UNAM was rated as the best higher education institution in Namibia by the Professional Management Review of South Africa and won a Golden Arrow Award.  The previous year a Geneva based Foundation for Excellence in Business Practice nominated UNAM to be the recipient of the Foundation’s Gold Medal for Excellence in Business Practice. To date UNAM has graduated over 12,000 students who are serving the country in various sectors of the economy with most occupying prominent positions in government and the private sector.
