WHAT DOES U.S. QUALITY EDUCATION MEAN?
Our institution positions Costa Rica as the first country in Latin America to have a satellite campus. Our programs are recognized worldwide and our students enjoy international job opportunities, as well as a student life experience like the one lived by other TTU students in Lubbock, Texas.
Costa Rica is a host country where other Latin American students can receive an U.S. education. Our presence in our country strengthens the job market and aids in the preparation of national talent. Our Work & Study program helps students gain experience and earn a salary that can cover part of their expenses.
Our programs are accredited by boards such as SACS-COC, among others. We have an established mission, and the necessary resources and services to work towards our goals. We are constantly incorporating new technologies that are taught by a competent staff. Our degrees are valued across the world.
We offer a student-centered educational experience that promotes the development of soft skills. Soft skills are highly sought by companies, as they understand that they help organizations reach their goals. We strive for our students to develop strong communication, stress management strategies, customer service, and personal productivity.
Our position in Costa Rica acknowledges the country’s role in connecting Latin America. More than 250 multinational companies are located in the country. By helping students perfect their conversational and professional English, they are able to develop interpersonal and professional relationships in the language.
