The University of Mzumbe is among the East African top in the field of academic research. We are successful because we apply fundamental academic research in an innovative way when dealing with social and individual problems. Mzumbe University lecturers actively involve their students in their research. This way, both parties are stimulated to continue to push their boundaries.
Developments in academia often emerge at the interface of several different subject fields,which is why many research groups at Mzumbe University are multidisciplinary. In addition, the University participates in national and international research programmes, and many MU-based researchers collaborate with colleagues from all over the world on a daily basis.
