Admas University, which is one of the pioneer Private Higher Education Institutions in Ethiopia, commenced its operation in October 1998 under the name “Admas Business Training Centre.” The Training Centre then started delivering training services in certain tailor-made short-term programmes. By undertaking deep assessments of further training needs and making preparations in terms of the required human and material resources, the centre upgraded itself to a college status as of April 1999, and to the status of a University College as of March 2007. Finally, after ensuring that all the requirements of Higher Education Proclamation No. 650/2009 have been met, the Ministry of Education of F.D.R.E. granted full University status to Admas as of July 2014.
