We have contributed substantial sums to fund advance planning for the American University of Mongolia. This is a good investment for the future of Mongolia. We clearly recognize what a great asset AUM will be to Mongolia and the young people who will be our future.

Having had the privilege to live and work with Mongolians in Mongolia over 14 years since 1994 – including as a teacher myself – I deeply appreciate how innately passionate and capable Mongolian people are to learn and grow their intellects, skills sets, and international experiences. The American University of Mongolia will give so many more Mongolian youth rich opportunities to satisfy those passions and earn a world-class accredited undergraduate and post-graduate degree, or degrees, in their own country. The AUM is a non-profit investment in Mongolia’s most valuable asset below or above the ground: her human capital.

A successful democracy depends largely on a well-informed and well-educated civil society. An American style university education will encourage the critical thinking and questioning necessary to promote democratic values in Mongolia.

Stephen A. Maloy

      General Counsel (Retired), Asia Pacific, General Electric Company

Today's generation of Mongolians are blessed with the promise of a rapidly developing democracracy and abundant natural resources. Developing and preserving these gifts for future generations will require not only strong technical expertise but also a truly global perspective on human history, economics and culture. I hope AUM can help to prepare young Mongolians for this promising, exciting and challenging future.

  

  

J. Peter Morrow

      Corporate Director
      Chairman of the Board, AMU

Our goal is to establish a first class university; one that teaches locally but that thinks globally. We intend to educate young leaders for Mongolia’s future; leaders who can advance Mongolia in the global community.

Puntsag Tsagaan

      Chief of Staff of the President of Mongolia

The future of Mongolia is a topic of significant international interest. The nation is blessed with great natural resources and with that comes great responsibility. To wisely fulfill our goals and aspirations, the nation needs a university as good, as vibrant, and as strong as our future. The “American” university educational model, which is long overdue in Mongolia, will help us reach our full potential.
