Academic City launched its leading-edge campus in 2021 with a focus on engineering, technology, business, and communication arts programs.
In 2009 at the time of its establishment, Academic City College was a standalone facility in Ring Road, Accra that was popularly known for its affiliated programme with Sikkim Manipal University (SMU). Over the course of 9 years, Academic City College graduated over 3,000+ students from over 23 countries in Africa. The college’s alumni established themselves as distinguished professionals working at reputed organizations such as international banks, manufacturing firms, corporate offices, government departments and financial institutions in Ghana and West Africa.
In 2021, the group recognized the re-adjusted need for premium quality tertiary education infused with entrepreneurial thinking, innovative problem-solving, application-based learning, and an emphasis on ethical practices, within the African context. Henceforth, the Eureka Africa group re-positioned Academic City with a renewed purpose and a brand new campus, to deliver transformative, modern-day tertiary education.
