Today — with a U.S. Office to support U.S. institutions and students at home, Study Centers in Paris, Florence, London, Madrid, Rome and Sicily and plans for more — Accent now engages 4,000 students in 190 programs from 60 different academic institutions in global learning.
Accent’s growth and success are rooted in deep institutional partnerships and a wide variety of innovative programs, a number of which span more than a decade. We continue to be inspired by the idea at the heart of our founding — our belief that global learning is essential to achieving higher education’s most noble goals.
