URUBAMBA–César Vallejo University is in the works to open a university in Miami to serve Florida’s Latin American population, says the university’s director, Juan Manuel Pacheco, in an interview with LivinginPeru.com.

The university is also planning to open a second campus in Los Angeles as well as a Spanish language school in Shanghai.

Pacheco said that César Vallejo University started 19 years ago and has eight campuses, mainly in Northern Peru and Lima.

Offering 27 career paths, César Vallejo University has over 100,000 students, from which 60,000 are bachelor students, 28,000 are in the graduate program, and the rest participate in other courses and programs.

The director also highlighted that César Vallejo University is currently developing new career paths with greater technological content, based on what a university delegation learned in a recent visit to China.

The César Vallejo university consortium also includes two other universities, Señor de Sipán and Autónoma del Perú.
