When it was created, Agenla Academy had several courses in various fields of studies . The programs offered gradually expanded with the constantly growing demand, which required an administrative restructuring . This administrative restructuring took place in December 2018, and was concretized by The Minister in charge of Higher Education via the correspondence referenced 18-10519/L/MINESUP/SG/DDES/ESUP/ SDA/GA dated December 17, 2018. In the terms of this restructuring, Agenla Academy moved from the status of ‘Higher Institute’ to that of ‘University Institute’, baptized under the new appellation “Sub-Regional Bilingual University Institute – Agenla Academy, Yaoundé”, with 4 big schools namely :
Each of these school is made up of specialties .

The mission of the University is to prepare its graduates for effective and practical roles that align with the needs of the business world. Training is conducted within the specialized training pools of the University, adhering to the demands of each profession. This approach ensures that graduates acquire skills essential for international positions.
The University consists of four major schools. Each one is dedicated to training in a specific domain: engineering, social sciences, commerce and management, health sciences, and audiovisual media.
Each school offers a course program leading to various diplomas: BTS, HND, the diploma of a healthcare technician, a Professional Bachelor’s Degree, or a Professional Master’s Degree. In addition to these diplomas, there are opportunities for the continuing professional development of company workers and administrative staff.
Each of the four training pools benefits substantially from the support of a group of business partners. These businesses collaborate with the school based on a clear partnership: participation of business representatives in entrance exams, testimonials from company representatives praising the high training standards of the school, the establishment of a Chair within the school responsible for pre-recruitment and subsequent hiring of school graduates, engagement of company staff in the school’s continuing professional development programs, and financial contributions from the company to the school.
Each of the four training schools collaborates closely with one or more application companies. Here, students can apply classroom knowledge, and both faculty and students can participate in research and innovation. These application companies also contribute financially to their respective training pools, ensuring the school has the resources to achieve its objectives.
Application companies operate independently and sustainably. They report their economic and administrative performance to the University’s Board of Directors, especially during special sessions addressing matters related to these companies.
Such companies often collaborate within a collective of application companies, seeking solutions to shared challenges under the guidance of a Coordinator.Furthermore, the University hosts a business incubator providing a range of support services to startups. This incubator welcomes students from all schools, encouraging them to view entrepreneurship as a prime avenue for professional integration. It’s also open to faculty, administrative staff, and external project leaders.
