A few words about us
Founded in 1997, CEPA is a German-based company which specializes in university-level academic faculty-led programs, summer and semester programs, as well as the organization of higher level seminars and professional workshops.
We are proud of our expert knowledge and years of experience in university-level study abroad programming. Our success is measured by our growth, which has occurred, virtually, by “word of mouth”, due to our outstanding personalized service and flexibility.
The destinations we currently serve extend throughout Europe and also include multiple locations in Asia, Latin America, and Australia.
CEPA Foundation & Corporate Social Responsibility
The CEPA Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 2013 to advance and enrich CEPA’s education abroad programming and its CSR initiatives in developing countries.
Through collaborative efforts like this, CEPA is making quality academic experiences accessible to all.
We place our partners at the heart of everything…
Our mission is to develop and deliver education abroad programs with strong academic and cultural components in close partnership with faculty leaders and administrators at colleges and universities.
Together, we create custom designed study abroad programs that are based on the learning objectives unique to each course to reach those goals.
Through our expert knowledge of the destinations, close connections to local communities and cultures, as well as years of experience in university-level study abroad programming, we offer high-quality short and long-term programs.
CEPA is an excellent partner who will support the international initiatives of U.S. and Canadian universities.
They have a magnificent team that will take that great idea about a faculty-led program and make it a reality.
