Universidad de los Andes
Universidad de los Andes was founded on November 16th, 1948 under the leadership of Mario Laserna Pinzón. It was the first private higher education institution in Colombia that was both nondenominational and independent from traditional political parties. Because of these same characteristics, Universidad de los Andes was able to propitiate a visionary and avant-garde educational program at a historical moment in Colombia, during which other private universities were bound by political strife.
In the past decade, Universidad de los Andes has consistently been ranked as a top-10 university in Latin America and the top private university in Colombia. It continues to provide a high quality education that closes the knowledge gap between Colombia and the latest, most advanced scientific knowledge available elsewhere in the world.
