About Laureate

We believe in the power of education to change lives. Laureate Education, Inc., is a leading provider of quality higher education through its global network of degree-granting higher education institutions and state-of-the-art collaborative partnerships with industry leaders.

Laureate is proud to be part of a global movement dedicated to making the world a better place.  We have a proven commitment to having purpose in all that we do, and to passing on knowledge and skills that help our students become change-makers and life-long learners. In this way, we are Here for Good. Whether through our network of student led-health clinics that offer free or low-cost health services to more than 150,000 patients annually, or with our Here for Good Award winners who have received global recognition for their outstanding social impact, our institutions, students, staff, and faculty are playing a part in changing the world.

Aligned to our commitment to being Here for Good, we are proud to be one of the world’s largest Certified B Corporations® and Public Benefit Corporation (PBC). Further, our PBC is the largest such corporation to be publicly traded on any stock exchange in the world. Being a PBC and a B Corp allows us to legally embed our mission into all that we do, pushing us to find meaningful ways to improve on our social and environmental performance. It helps us balance our purpose and profit, bridging the gap between our academic community and our business operations. We strive to be not only the best in the world, but also the best for the world. What sets us apart, though, is the scale and platform we have to equip students around the world with the skills and awareness to be ambassadors in this movement, preparing them to lead innovative companies and communities that are determined to effect global change.
