The idea to establish Al-taqwa higher studies institute emerged in 2002, based on the success of other universities around the world. Today, the university is Afghanistan's only not-for-profit, private and independent university. It is non-political and non-sectarian, and committed to educating future generations of leaders in business, society and government.
Finally, this idea got implemented in 2012 by getting the registration with government of Afghanistan, ministry of higher education. We got inspected and appreciated. The government of Afghanistan welcomed this idea into a leading educational institute and started its programs in 2012. Currently, ATIHE offers degrees in Political Science (LLB), Business Administration (BBA), and Economics (BEc). ATIHE also offers diploma programs in Business Administration (DBA) Information Technology (DIT), and English Language (DEL).
