Our International Network

We are redefining the future of higher education, and believe in the power of education to transform lives.  Laureate is committed to making a positive impact in the communities we serve. The Laureate International Universities network comprises over 25 higher education institutions and more than 875,000 students, primarily focused in Latin America. We collaborate with industry leaders to provide our students with the skills and experience that are relevant to what employers are asking. While our institutions are primarily located in Latin America, our impact is global.



Life-Changing Education

Academic quality and student outcomes are at the center of everything we do. Our goal is to equip every Laureate graduate – from a student pursuing a bachelor’s degree in software engineering, to a seasoned executive who returned to complete an online master’s program – with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in their careers. Some may strive to become the CFO of a Fortune 500 company, others to start or advance a business they founded. Whatever their goals may be, we want our students to leave with the tools necessary to contribute to making the world a better place.

Our Impact

We believe society is best served when our students, faculty, and our entire organization use our collective skills and diverse experiences to create positive and lasting change.
