Academic Travel Abroad, Inc. was formed in 1950 to assist colleges, universities, museums and other cultural institutions, and professional organizations in the creation and operation of educational group travel programs for their memberships and patrons. Today ATA, a leader in cultural and educational group travel, operates unique travel programs throughout the world.

ATA has staff in the U.S. and around the world involved in all phases of travel: tour design, land operations, travel services, airline sales, and marketing.
ATA also has two subsidiary divisions which include offices around the world. CET Academic Programs is well known for its innovations in the field of study abroad.
