Years of history and education

In 2012, the Higher Institute of Professional Studies (HIPS) was founded by brothers Maliva Samuel Lyonga and Isuma Lyonga, marking the beginning of a transformative journey in the landscape of education in Cameroon. With a shared vision to provide accessible, high-quality education, they embarked on a mission to establish an institution that would not only meet the educational needs of the nation but also set a new standard of excellence.

Authorized by the Ministry of Higher Education, HIPS opened its doors to a small cohort of students, laying the foundation for what would soon become one of Cameroon’s premier private universities. Despite its modest beginnings, HIPS was driven by a commitment to academic rigor, innovation, and social impact.

As word of its exceptional educational offerings spread, HIPS experienced rapid growth, attracting bright and ambitious students from across the country and beyond. The institution’s dedication to providing affordable education without compromising on quality resonated with students and families seeking opportunities for advancement.

Throughout its history, HIPS has remained steadfast in its mission to empower students to shape the future through education and research. The institution’s curriculum is designed to not only impart knowledge but also cultivate critical thinking, creativity, and leadership skills essential for success in a rapidly changing world.

Moreover, HIPS has continually adapted to meet the evolving needs of its students and society. It has invested in state-of-the-art facilities, modern technology, and a diverse faculty comprising esteemed professors and experts from various fields.

Over the years, HIPS has forged strategic partnerships with renowned institutions worldwide, further enhancing its academic offerings and global reach. These collaborations have provided students with opportunities for international exposure, exchange programs, and research collaborations, enriching their educational experience and broadening their perspectives.

Today, HIPS stands as a symbol of academic excellence, innovation, and social responsibility. Its graduates are equipped not only with knowledge but also with the skills, values, and determination to make a positive impact in their communities and beyond. As it continues to grow and evolve, HIPS remains committed to its founding principles, striving to empower future generations of leaders, thinkers, and change-makers.
