The University of Namibia (UNAM) is a leading public, higher education institution in the country.  With a student population of close to 13,000 students each year, academic programmes at the University emanate from eight faculties and two schools. These are: the Faculty of Agriculture and Natural Resources; Faculty of Economics and Management Science; Faculty of Education, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences; Faculty of Law; Faculty of Health Sciences, consisting of the School of Nursing and Public Health and the School of Medicine; and the Faculty of Science.  These young yet dynamic and committed faculties and competent administrative support staff has earned UNAM a ranking of being one the top African Universities.  During 2006, UNAM was rated as the best higher education institution in Namibia by the Professional Management Review of South Africa and won a Golden Arrow Award.  The previous year a Geneva based Foundation for Excellence in Business Practice nominated UNAM to be the recipient of the Foundation’s Gold Medal for Excellence in Business Practice.
