HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY

The founding of Universidad EAN had its genesis in the late 1960s when Dr. Hildebrando Perico Afanador invited a group of professionals to formalize the establishment of the School of Business Administration, inspired by his conviction that the development and progress of the country depended on the stimulation of the entrepreneurial spirit among its citizens and the need to create businesses.

As the main proponent of this idea, Dr. Perico began academic activities on August 10, 1967 with 14 students in the Techniques of Business Administration program which was a significant achievement considering that up to that point administration had never been taught nor were there any tertiary level institutions that was dedicated to the education of business administrator and business people.

In the school’s Founding Charter which was signed on October 11, 1968 by HILDEBRANDO PERICO AFANADOR, CECILIA CRISSIEN DE PERICO, CARLOS RAMÍREZ CARDONA, ALVARO RUBIO SALAS and CARLOS ALFONSO CRISSIEN ALDANA, the founders stated their intention to devote their time, experience, abilities and lives to the development and progress of this new educational project, offering the creation of new academic and humanistic programs within the framework of the administrative and technical sciences, with emphasis on the development of entrepreneurs and the entrepreneurial spirit so that graduates mat contribute to the social and economic development of the countries in which they act.

With the permanent leadership of its founders and the contributions of a large number of teachers, administrators and staff who have worked in partnership with the institution since its inception, its programs and activities have extended both nationally and internationally as it establishes important links overseas. All these factors play an integral role in creating the prestigious institution is which now known as Universidad EAN.

This recognition is established in Resolution No. 2470 of May 30, 2006 from the Ministry of Education of Colombia. Currently, Universidad EAN ranks among the most prestigious institutions of higher education in the country, distinguishing itself as the pioneer among academic institutions for its educational model based on individual competencies, the development of business focused programs and the strengthening of the entrepreneurial sprit amongst its students who complete both undergraduate and postgraduate studies.
