Welcome to the American University of Phnom Penh

Welcome to the American University of Phnom Penh, founder of the Center for Leadership and Professional Development

The American University of Phnom Penh (AUPP) is the only university in Cambodia that meets American educational standards. Determined to follow the American education model, the university started its first Bachelor’s degree courses in 2013. It now offers a total of 12 different majors including business, law, and architecture.

The AUPP is the only university in Cambodia that offers American accredited dual degrees. Graduates earn two degrees, one from AUPP and the other from our partner universities in the USA, upon completing studies. These programs are delivered by top-quality postgraduate professors and individuals with teaching experiences and backgrounds in countries such as the USA, UK, and Canada.

The university is founded on seven core principles that guide its faculty, staff, and students. These principles are:

  • Academic freedom
  • Continuous improvement and accountability
  • Diversity, equity, and cultural heritage
  • Excellence
  • Leadership and integrity
  • Life-long learning
  • Social responsibility

The Center of Leadership and Professional Development (CLPD) was grounded on these principles, emphasizing lifelong learning. We strive to provide professional world-class development opportunities to our community, making it our first and foremost mission.
