The American University in Iraq – Baghdad is a newly established institution founded in January 2021, as a, “…dream of influential individuals in Iraq and United States business, industry and government who want to see a world-class institution of higher learning established in Baghdad. Reminiscent of the days when the city was an educational and cultural mecca and the flourishing capital of the Muslim world. AUIB follows in the tradition of three historical institutions in Baghdad: the House of Wisdom, al-Nizamiyah Madrasah, often described as “the largest university in the medieval world,” and al-Mustansiriyah Madrasah.”
