Caribbean International University (CIU)
Caribbean International University (CIU) is a university that has been recognized by the government of the Dutch Antilles since December 7, 2001 under the number 6062/JAZ. The founding principles surpass those of traditional teaching at the university level and they have been an inspiration for the many changes that have occured since the statement of the Sorbona in 1998, to the Conference of Prague, in the 2001, and constitute a source of vital experience.
Presently, knowledge is an essential good in the modern activities, it is also a decisive factor to measure the margins of competitiveness between one economy and another.
The time between the generation of new knowledge and its application should be as brief as possible; and if the knowledge is not updated, it tends to become obsolete. The competitive advantages of an economy are gradually defined by the society's human resources which, in addition to being trained appropriately in its schools, are constantly being updated.
The labor market every day is more competitive and it is necessary that Higher Education should be of the highest quality in order to confront the challenges of the knowledge. The governments are aware of this demand, nevertheless, they don't always have the necessary resources to invest in education. It is up to the private sector to contribute in a more direct way in the formation of the institutions to the Higher Education. To achieve this, it is necessary that the training programs have quality standards, that the curricula are efficient, short and also flexible; that the students and professionals have all the ability to update his knowledge constantly.

Isles Internationale UniversitÚ (IIU)
The Isles Internationale Université (European Union) receives its name from two sources, the original company register filed in Ireland, and the further Charter from Ministry of Education in the UK to act as a University, deriving into a British Isles born organization, now established in the heart of the EU, elsewhere of the British Isles.
The original concept of the institution was first conceived in 1995 by a group of academicians; the first batch of distance learning students were enrolled in 1996 and the first batch of graduates were produced in 2000. When those foundation students graduated as 'Convocation Year 2000', they were quickly recruited by some of the largest corporations worldwide and their subsequent achievements in the workplace firmly established the University reputation.
The IIU was first registered in Ireland; at the dawn of the millennium, the institution was officially launched in year 2000 and first official convocation was held in September of that year, as a not-for-profit company, meant to act as studies validation and awarding body for a number of universities, schools and colleges throughout Asia and Africa, as well as for IIU partner institutions in Europe.
Over time, the organisation’s Charter gave place to development in Europe of the Isles Internationale Université (European Union) to become an internationally recognized self governed community of scholars, established in Belgium to work under the EU academic alignments on pursuing its mission’s accomplishment, run by highly internationally recognized academicians, scientists and education specialists.
The IIU-EU’s organization is a totally autonomous institution, which works independently of the old company’s functioning; nevertheless, to favor the IIU-EU’s mission achievement, it maintains a link to the old company through its International Office, in order to take advantage of its international financing schemes and of its international relations framework.
