Earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Cambodia from a Top-Ranked U.S. University

The University of Arizona and the American University of Phnom Penh offer innovative programs that allow students to earn bachelor’s degrees in Business, Engineering, and Law from Arizona and AUPP in only four years. The partnership enables students to complete a U.S.-accredited degree entirely in Cambodia.

Arizona + AUPP Professors

Students learn from Arizona and AUPP faculty, access Arizona and AUPP resources, and become part of Arizona's network of 295,000 alumni worldwide. Innovative course delivery prepares students for an increasingly technical world.

Ranked TOP 1% in the World

The University of Arizona ranks number 69 out of more than 20,000 schools in the world, according to the Center for World University rankings,
placing Arizona in the top 1% percent of
universities globally.

Study Abroad

Students may complete the program entirely in Phnom Penh or study abroad at the Tucson, Arizona campus in the U.S. for a summer, semester, or longer. The palm-tree lined campus is known as one of the most beautiful in the country.


Business Administration

The Business Administration program prepares students to work in Cambodia, the surrounding Southeast Asia region, and beyond. Students gain an understanding of economic concepts and mathematical relationships, as well as analytical and communications skills to succeed in a variety of industries and operations.

Civil Engineering

The Civil Engineering program prepares students to apply scientific and mathematical principles to engineering design and construction. Courses include physics, chemistry, geology, and hydrology—and practical sciences such as surveying and computer graphics. Students receive specific instruction across a range of Civil Engineering practices, including structural and geotechnical engineering (buildings and their foundations), transport engineering (roads, airports, bridges), water resources engineering (dams, rivers, urban water systems), and construction engineering management (cost estimation, scheduling).


The dual bachelor’s degrees in Law from Arizona and AUPP offer rigorous training for high-performing undergraduates. The program includes specific courses on Cambodian, Southeast Asian, and U.S. law. Students receive instruction in civil and criminal procedure—and take courses in evidence, legal research, and lawyering skills. Elective courses and specialized internships allow students to focus on areas of potential interest.
