Copperstone University was established in 2004, through company incorporation, with the primary objective of fostering quality and solid higher education to Zambians and the world at large.
It is founded on the strong premise of the “Copper – Stone” principle – a stone that lays a solid foundation for Zambian‟s development and a backbone to the country‟s economy.
So the name “Copperstone” is steeped in the historical aspects of this country and it becomes the first institutionalised named to be coined in this fashion.
Copperstone is one of the leading private university, a Registered Chartered University registered by the Higher Education Authority (under 2013 University Act) Certificate of Registration Number HEA/030
