MLAP: Duke CE & Partners

At the intersection of business and education

Duke Corporate Education (Duke CE), a global provider of learning and development services that helps clients address their business challenges, is a blend of a business and a university – but distinct from both.

Borrowing from the university world, we offer a thoughtful, stimulating forum for safe and open expression by everyone; and from the business world, we bring the values of client service and of being driven by client outcomes.

The worlds of business, of education, of established and growing markets – Duke CE brings them together to offer our clients more than they expect.

A very diverse group of academics and business practitioners

We are staffed by a very diverse group of 125 people, including academics and business practitioners.

Our headquarters are in Durham, North Carolina, USA. Other offices are in London, UK; Johannesburg, South Africa; Singapore; and Ahmedabad, India; as well as San Diego, California in the USA.
