Mulungushi University

Mulungushi University is one of the public universities of Zambia.

Previously known as the National College of Management and Development Studies, it was turned into a university by the Zambian Government in a public-private partnership with Konkola Copper Mines in 2008. The university consists of three campuses: the Main Campus, or Great North Road Campus, located 26 kilometers North of Kabwe on the banks of the Mulungushi River; the Town Campus, located along Mubanga Road, off Munkoyo Street, near the center of Kabwe town; and the Livingstone Campus, located in Livingstone, which is home to the medical school. The university provides bachelor's degrees and master's degrees for full-time and distance education. In 2009, more than 500 distance education students enrolled. They were mainly former diploma students of the National College for Management and Development Studies.[3]

The Main (Great North Road) Campus is located near the Mulungushi Rock of Authority, a kopje often called the Birthplace of Zambian Independence, where Kenneth Kaunda and the Zambian African National Congress secretly met for rallies. Today, a more accessible rock is still used for political conventions and meetings as well as graduation ceremonies of the university. A series of chalets were built to house dignitaries and other guests.

Mulungushi University is ranked as the #3 top university in Zambia during 2024. This is the same rank as last year.
