About Ider

Ider University began by renting available space at an Ulaanbaatar university when it began in 1995. At the time only two disciplines were available, management and sociology. Since then Ider has expanded to become one of the top 10 private universities in Mongolia. We have three schools offering 14 degrees in social science, pedagogy, information technology, and language.


Our mission is to contribute to the establishment of modern civic society. We aim to involve students in decision making processes and to improve their problem solving skills, helping them to resolve not only personal issues but the issues facing the country.


Ider University is conveniently located in the heart of Ulaanbaatar within walking distance to shopping, grocery stores, and entertainment.
