Kathmandu University (KU) is an autonomous, public institution established in 1991. The university’s mission statement is “to provide quality education for leadership”. The vision is “to become a world-class university devoted to bringing knowledge and technology to the service of mankind”.

On behalf of KU, the Kathmandu University School of Management (KUSOM) Policy Lab and Master of Public Policy and Management joined EPIC-N in 2021.
