Univ San Ignacio, Peru

We at the Center for American Education and the Department of Communications at the Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola in Lima, Peru are looking to expand our North American degree offerings. We are currently accepting proposals for partnering institutions for our dual degree program in Communication Studies or Mass Communications.

Currently, we have an agreement with the University of South Florida to offer both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Business Administration (they are ranked among the top 25 public universities in the US in this field), and have recently concluded an agreement with the University of Houston (ranked among the top 5 in this discipline) to offer a BS in Hotel Management.

This partnership essentially provides an international annex campus for a state university in the US and allows us to extend our presence in the English-language world of Peruvian education. We pay a fee to the university based upon the number of students in the cohort. Our students leave with degrees from both USIL and the partnering institution. All faculty members of the programs we currently offer are SACS and AACSB-accredited in their respective disciplines.  Additionally, our US-based partner institutions have the opportunity to send faculty to our campus at regular intervals to teach the courses in their specialization.
