Université Ouaga II

L'université de Ouagadougou (UO) enregistre depuis l'an 2000 une arrivée massive de nouveaux bacheliers. L'accroissement rapide des effectifs a conduit à l'insuffisance et l'inadaptation des infrastructures d'accueil. Pour faire face à ce problème des effectifs devenus pléthoriques, le gouvernement burkinabé a décidé par décret le 12 décembre 2007 de la création de l'université Ouaga II qui sera basée à Gonsé, localité située dans la commune de Saaba.
Cette université regroupe depuis l'année universitaire 2007-2008, les unités de formation et de recherche (UFR) en Sciences Juridiques et Politiques (SJP) et en Sciences Économiques et de Gestion (SEG). Ces unités étaient précédemment rattachées à l'université de Ouagadougou.
