In 2015, Laureate and its network institutions went through a rigorous assessment by B Lab®, a non-profit organization that evaluates and certifies companies based on their overall social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. With our certification as a B Corporation, Laureate joins the global movement of businesses that strive to be a force for good.


We believe in the power of education to change lives, and remain committed to making an enduring impact in the communities we serve. This has been our focus since our first investment in higher education was made in 1999 and our conversion to a Public Benefit Corporation and B Corp certification reflects a natural progression for us. This process enables us to demonstrate our commitment to social impact, measure it, and continue to expand and strengthen our efforts to be ‘Here for Good’. The B Corp movement’s principles and commitment to rigorous assessment are ones that run concurrent to our own and make us proud to be part of their growing community.View
