Ranking and accreditation

University of the Andes is the only private university in Colombia with a Colombian National Education Ministry Quality Accreditation renewed for the maximum possible time of 10 years (Resolution 582 of January 9th, 2015). Uniandes also has four QS Quality Stars of five possible, given by British firm Quacquarelli Symonds.

Uniandes has also received international accreditations as the one awarded by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET to eight undergraduate programs of the School of Engineering in 2010. 

The Faculty of Administration is the first institution in Colombia accredited by the AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). This accreditation is a quality distinction highly sought after by management faculties, accounting for less than 5% of these schools in the world, including universities such as Harvard, MIT and Babson.

With this accreditation of AACSB, in addition to the accreditations EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) and AMBA (Association of MBAs), with which it already counted, the Faculty of Administration obtained in 2010 the Triple Crown, maximum award that a business school can achieve in the international context.



Triple Crown is an expression used by business schools, recognized worldwide as a hallmark of quality in 1% of schools, a group in which are London Business School, IESE and IE Business School in Spain, HEC In France and only six institutions in Latin America.

This recognition reflects the commitment to provide education of international stature to form human capital that contributes to the country's competitiveness.
