We are a university with thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students, nestled in 5 campuses across the republic of Benin with our bi-lingual city campus domiciles in the heart of Cotonou the commercial capital of Benin republic.

Founded Decades ago, to meet the demands of a new kind of society, economy, and world. Our principles resonate now more than ever. ESAE University was born from a pioneering vision, one of a different kind of university.

The University’s founding aim was to produce graduates who not only had the technical and specialist knowledge to move society forward, but who understood the social and political landscape that drove this need.

Fast-forward till date the university’s original ethos remains at the core of the University’s mission, and our global network of over 10,000 alumni in 120 countries is creating positive impact across the world in a range of diverse careers.

We also provide an enabling environment, training, and mentorship for students to awaken their entrepreneurial spirit.

We train our undergraduate on how to proffer practical solutions to economic and all-round societal challenges facing the African continent and the world at large. At our university students are mandated to learn both French and English language, which make them well prepared to take the lead in the international scene.
