In the fall of 2005, Walden University created partnership programs with Latin American universities so that students at the Universidad del Valle de Mexico (UVM) and other institutions in the Laureate International Universities network could earn a bachelor’s degree at their home institution and at Walden.
Walden’s dual degree program allows students from universities in Mexico, Panama, and Costa Rica to obtain degrees from Walden University while simultaneously earning degrees at universities in their home countries.
Walden University and Universidad del Valle de Mexico (UVM)
Walden University and Universidad del Valle de Mexico (UVM) offer a dual degree program to students as part of Walden’s increasing focus as a global university. Through this partnership, students in UVM’s School of Administration and Economics, with 27 campuses, may obtain a United States degree without ever leaving the country.
Graduates in the dual degree program obtain both their Bachelor of Science degree and their “licenciatura” degrees without leaving Mexico for their schooling. UVM is one of the largest and most prestigious Mexican universities, and students enrolled in the University’s School of Administration and Economics can obtain the dual degree by fulfilling both UVM’s and Walden University’s requirements. Students complete requirements at one of UVM’s 27 campuses and online courses at Walden University. Both programs can be completed in nine semesters.
Walden University and UVM are part of the Laureate International Universities global network of accredited universities. Accordingly, Walden University has opened the Bachelor of Science dual degree program to Universidad Interamericana de Costa Rica in Costa Rica and Universidad Latinamericana de Ciencia y Tecnologia in Panama. Both are also part of Laureate International Universities.
