The Eller College is now beginning to establish a network of micro-campuses around the world.
What is a micro-campus?
A micro-campus is a UA space on the campus of a partner university, which enables the international delivery of UA degree programs to local students, collaboratively with our partner university. It also serves as a synergistic hub for other forms of internationalization including faculty collaborations in research, student intercultural learning and development, interdisciplinary community engagement, and more.
How does it work?
SHARED CAMPUS – The partner university allows use of its physical campus and classrooms, and provides a designated space for the UA, which alleviates the need for new infrastructure and allows the UA to focus on delivering high-quality educational instruction in collaboration with the partner university.
SHARED STUDENTS – Students maintain their student status at the partner university, while enrolled in for-credit UA courses, offered on location at the partner university.
COLLABORATIVE TEACHING – Courses are co-taught by a UA and a local professor, or a locally-based UA faculty member.
DUAL DEGREES – Students earn a UA degree and a degree from the partner university, including bachelor’s and master’s-level degree options available across multiple disciplines.
American University of Phnom Penh (AUPP)
The Eller College of Management’s first micro-campus partnership is with the American University of Phnom Penh (AUPP). The first Business Administration degree cohort started in May 2017, with approximately 30 students enrolled in summer courses. AUPP is a private, not-for-profit, university in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Offering an American-style education in its fourth year of operation, AUPP has already solidified its reputation as the most academically rigorous university in Cambodia. They will move into a state of the art campus in Fall 2017.
The Eller/AUPP undergraduate dual degree program offers a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree from a top-ranked program. AUPP dual degree students complete the same prestigious degree program that our on-ground students earn. This program allows students to complete coursework in achievable seven-week sessions. With the support of Eller and AUPP faculty, a success coach, and fellow dual-degree students, they will achieve a major professional milestone.
