Our students: a large multi-national family

People from different countries on the five continents work, study and live side-by-side with professionals with the same diverse origins.

For any university, the student body constitutes the rationale for existence, the foundation of the vision and mission, the objectives, and of its teaching and learning programs. At CATIE, as an international university, there is an even stronger interaction with its students, among the students, and in many cases with their families, than at any other higher education center. Sharing customs, cultures, foods, experiences with students from the countries in America and frequently from other continents, turns out to be a wonderful growing experience for personal development. Nearly all of the students, whether they are exchange or internship students, or whether they continue on to receive diplomas, specializations or master’s or doctoral degrees, all live on campus where they form a true community and a large family.
