Laureate International Universities

Laureate International Universities is the most important international private university network, leader in education worldwide. Its members share knowledge and the best practices in the higher education field in order to train professionals at international level.

UPC is, since 2004, a member of Laureate.

MUCH MORE THAN AN INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENT

Being a part of Laureate is much more than just entering into cooperation agreements. Laureate is an organization that gathers excellent higher education institutions in an international platform and offers students an education with global perspectives for every program. The aim is for every student of the network member institutions to broaden his or her program horizons and, at the same time, study in eleven other higher education institutions.

WE HAVE BEEN CHOSEN FOR THE SAME REASON YOU DID

Laureate International Universities has chosen UPC, in Peru, for its leadership and prestige in order to become part of their innovative educational project worldwide.

This is an acknowledgment of the trajectory and work by UPC in such important areas as curricular updates, competency-based education, the practical approach of its programs, etc.  These are all matters that coincide with innovation in higher education at world prestigious universities.

LEADER INSTITUTIONS TRAIN NEW PROFESSIONALS

Laureate seeks the greatest synergy among its members. Respecting peculiarities and local perspectives, Laureate encourages each university to share its best practices in order to achieve excellent higher education.

Today, Laureate International Universities operates in sixteen countries and gathers twenty-four universities and colleges.
