Jubilee University is the brainchild of late Justice Maxon Mbendera who wanted to contribute towards the development of young people in Malawi by interacting with them positively through Higher Education. He viewed such interaction as an opportunity to influence the future leaders of our society. He was excited about the University and had worked extremely hard to get the university ready for launching.

We are proud to carry on with his dream and launch the Jubilee University. The founder chose the name Jubilee as a celebration of fifty years of Malawi’s existence. Enjoy the rest of your visit at Jubilee University.
