History

At CES University we are autonomous, private, non-denominational, non-profit, in search of the training of professionals in pre- and postgraduate studies in all areas of knowledge, with the highest human, ethical and scientific qualities.

Founded on July 5th, 1977, excellence has been the permanent challenge of the Institutional Educational Project -PEI-, seeking to innovate in the training of human resources, advancing in the internationalization of the institution and developing the virtual component of its educational proposal, with the purpose that the professional practice of our graduates is recognized not only nationally but internationally.

In 2007, we received resolution 1371 of March 22 from the Ministry of National Education of Colombia –MEN–, which endorses us as a university. The change of academic character from university institution to university responds to a desire and a decision of the entire academic community, embodied in the 2000-2010 development plan.

Continuing with our commitment to excellence, in 2014 we received by the MEN the Accreditation as a High Quality University, which was renewed through Resolution 013602 of December 9, 2019 with a validity of 6 years.

From the foundation and up to the present, we have enjoyed the recognition of both academics and society in general, an aspect that has been reflected in the High Quality Accreditation by the Ministry of National Education of 6 undergraduate degrees and 1 graduate program.

As part of our academic exercise, we have developed a wide variety of programs: 16 undergraduate and 95 postgraduate courses in accordance with the expectations of the graduates and the need for specialized resources in the field.

Achieving this recognition implied progress in all areas of the institution, in accordance with the guidelines of the Founders Chamber, the Superior Council and the path outlined by the Strategic Plan for Institutional Development, always having as its north the three substantive functions: teaching, research and innovation, and extension.
