The main reason that I came to Panama was to finish my college education and I highly recommend other people to do the same. One of the best schools to go to is Quality Leadership University. It is a campus that houses multiple American universities and is conveniently located in the city (Bella Vista area). All classes are in English so you don’t have to worry about any language barriers. Click here to check out their website, or here for their Facebook page.

They have the following programs:

University of Louisville: Offers all general education courses as well as a Communications degree.

Towson University: Great business program that offers you a degree in business management.

Empire State College: Offers degrees in Marketing and International Business. This is a hybrid class, you attend class for a week in the evenings, then have 8 weeks of online classes and then go back to class for the last week. Great program if you will be working in Panama and want to attend school at the same time.

Florida International University: Offers a masters program in business administration and construction administration.


Experience Panama


I'm from Louisville, Kentucky and moved to Panama in 2011 to finish a degree in International Business. I enjoyed the hot tropical weather and the lifestyle on offer in Panama City so much that I decided to make it my permanent residence.
