One of the most prestigious awards conferred by Azteca University is the Honorary Doctoral Degree
It is awarded to those individuals who have made extraordinary academic or social contributions, particularly in fields of relevance and importance at national and at international levels
The selection of honorary degree recipients is overseen by a Committee at the Division of International Programs at Azteca University. The committee will seek approval to recommend a slate of honorary degree candidates for approval.


Azteca University will not normally award honorary degrees: posthumously; in absentia; to active politicians; to financial donors whose only affiliation to Azteca is monetary; or to current members of its own faculty, staff, students, or Board of Governors (consideration can occur after 3 years’ post-service). Individuals may not nominate themselves or members of their own family
