Mission, Vision and Institutional Values



Universidad EAFIT’s mission is to contribute to the country’s social, economic, scientific, and cultural development through undergraduate and graduate programs that mold globally competent individuals within a framework of ideological pluralism and academic excellence, as well as through scientific and applied research conducted in permanent interaction with the private sector, government, and academia.
