Yerevan Haybusak University (International Academy of Education)

Yerevan Haybusak University was founded in 1990 and since then it has become the largest private educational institution in Armenia. With 18 departments, undergraduate college and high school, it is now the recognized leader of the country’s private education.

Yerevan Haybusak University is fully accredited by the State. Our over 7/000 alumni work not only in Armenia, but also all over the world. Both Bachelor degrees and Master degrees are available to our students.

In 2007, Yerevan Haybusak University, Armenian Open University, Diplomacy and Oriental Studies Institute after H. Lazaryan, Haybusak undergraduate college and Haybusak high school and several overseas educational institutions joined to form the International Academy of Education, an institution which would ensure the best possible quality of education by sharing resources, techniques and strategies of teaching. In 2010, the “Roslin” institute of design,   in 2014  Armenian  Institute  of  Ecology,  Economy  and  Law  also joined International Academy of Education (IAE).

Yerevan Haybusak University has an  agreement  with the Educational Commission for Medical Graduates (ECFMG) which provides opportunities to obtain USMLE performance data about our students and graduates, reducing the time spent verifying the status of our students and graduates.

Several courses from our overseas partners, such as the European School of Management (Spain), Ex Marseille University (France) and Moscow Sechenov’s Academy (Russia) are available to our students. Several times a year, a visiting professor from these institutions delivers a lecture or a seminar on the subjects our students are most interested in (surveys are conducted to reveal the interests of the students).
