In an age in which knowledge and information are constantly evolving,
academic training must keep pace with those changes.
EAFIT’s Continuing Education Center offers nearly 700 courses and diploma programs in more than 70 knowledge areas. The EAFIT campus also welcomes students from Colombia and other parts of the world to its Summer School program, which offers courses for all ages during the vacation period.
The portfolio of services offered by the Continuing Education Center, or CEC, includes short programs, such as conferences, symposiums, and seminars, as well as diploma courses and regular or closed courses for businesses, depending on their needs. The subject matter covered in the CEC’s courses is coordinated by EAFIT’s academic areas and draws on knowledge from each of the university’s six schools.
The Saberes de Vida (Knowledge for Life) program offers nearly 500 senior citizens in Medellín, Bogotá, Pereira, Cartagena, and Llanogrande a space to quench their thirst for knowledge. The pleasure of intellectual exploration takes precedence in this program, which comprises diploma programs in different areas, wellbeing classes, and instruction with an international focus.
Universidad EAFIT’s Summer School has consolidated itself as an academic and cultural space during recess periods: between June and July and between November and December, offering courses and seminars (formal and continuing education) for children, adolescents, and adults from Colombia and other parts of the world.
This program uses novel elements to promote learning, giving participants from Colombia and abroad the opportunity to study alongside others and experience the city of Medellín from a historical and cultural perspective.
