The schools of higher education and universities are peaks of pride for Azerbaijani culture, science and national identity.

About Us


We are a university with four schools. Our School of Public and International Affairs, School of Business, School of IT and Engineering, School of Education offer both graduate and undergraduate degrees. ADA is a culture of collaboration, teamwork, analytical thinking, critical reasoning and strategic planning. 

The support of Government of Azerbaijan is expressed in a significant capital investment through which ADA University has been building a world-class campus. Moreover, the government’s strong financial support during the launch years has ensured the university’s continuous promise to quality. ADA University’s goal, instead, is to ultimately become self-sufficient, to help meet the needs of the Azerbaijani people through research and learning… but not depend on its purse.



Launch of a permanent endowment fund is one of a few innovative concepts ADA has pioneered in the education sector of Azerbaijan. Our Foundation is the endowment-building arm of the university. 

It is organized exclusively for charitable purposes to support the university in creating and maintaining educational activities in Azerbaijan and elsewhere in the world. By supporting ADA University Foundation and building a permanent endowment fund, we are investing in the future of the university. This is an ambitious and worthy goal, and we hope you will join us in its pursuit.



The Foundation has a four-floor building located in downtown Washington DC which has become a significant extension of ADA University and its activities in the USA. It is a membership organization offering a variety of services to public and private entities. 

Built in 1900 and located just steps away from Dupont Circle and Philipps Collection, ADA University Foundation is a marvel of old world craftsmanship and contemporary design. Spanning over 4 floors, Foundation promotes social, fraternal and networking opportunities; facilitates educational activities and exchanges; and advances cultural ties and understanding between the United States and Azerbaijan. 

Completely renovated in 2015, ADA University Foundation is a charm of Washington DC’s Gallery Row. Together with ADA University, we promote research, scholarly, educational and cultural activities, hence, foster more awareness and understanding.
