Establishment and Historical Background of the College

Shalom Business and Technology College was founded by Dr. Tsegaye Mathewos Mena, who believes that human beings can change through education (learning and training). Before Shalom College was established on July 30, 2019, Dr. Tsagaye Mathew was giving Education Service in his born place in 2008 in the community of Wondo Gent Wsha. When the community was suffering from the lack of modern education due to the lack of primary and middle school, they opened a pre-kindergarten school "Selam Academy Kindergarten and Primary School" and have been serving the community for 14 years. After that, with the broad and progressive idea of why we are limited to kindergarten and elementary school, then He opened “Selam Distance Education Academy”, he was able to become the first Academy registered in the region to teach Distance
Education programs from the southern region, from the present Sidama region, through a distance education program called Selam 5th - 12th Grade Distance Education Academy. Due to his good start in distance education, he is still working in the field of distance education at Shalom Business and Technology College in two disciplines, Accounting and Finance and Management Department, after preparing the necessary requirements of the High Quality and Relevance Agency (HERQA).

After that, we started teaching a regular curriculum and started to teach in five teaching Departments in Diploma (TVET) program
