Centers of Excellence


Laureate network institutions offer the widest range of high-quality programs in many fields of study. Many institutions in the Laureate International Universities network have earned international reputations for excellence in their fields, including health sciences, hospitality management, art, culinary arts, education and architecture and design. Laureate fosters collaboration among the institutions that offer these standout programs, called Centers of Excellence, and makes them available to students at Laureate institutions worldwide.

Among the hallmarks of the Centers of Excellence are academic expertise and a track record of research and innovation in their respective fields of study. Laureate marshals the synergy of the Centers of Excellence to make extraordinary faculty, curricula and teaching practices available to students throughout the Laureate network.

Laureate Centers of Excellence also provide students with a global perspective on their industries and expand their opportunities to study abroad. The goal — and the result — is to increase Laureate graduates’ employability in these growing fields.
