University of the Andes

About US

The Universidad de los Andes’purpose continues to be that of providing a high quality education that will help to close the knowledge gap between Colombia and the latest and most advanced scientific knowledge available in the world. From its onset, Universidad de los Andes established agreements with the universities of Illinois, Pittsburgh, and Texas, so that its students could study abroad. This was a very innovative program at that time. With this vision – that would later be adopted by other Colombian universities as well – Universidad de los Andes began its work in 1949 with seven programs, 79 students, and 16 professors.
