University Community

One of the university’s main challenges is the multifaceted development of those who make up the EAFIT community; that is why it promotes spaces and activities that contribute to their wellbeing. ​​foto4.jpg​​


Nearly 10,200 undergraduate students and 3,200 graduate students are enrolled in the undergraduate, graduate certificate, master’s degree, and doctorate programs offered by the schools of Management, Engineering, Humanities, Law, Economics and Finance, and Sciences. This student community enjoys numerous benefits that extend beyond academics and include cultural, athletic, and outreach opportunities.​

Students not only are natives of Medellín and the Valle de Aburrá metropolitan area. They also hail from other regions of Colombia, especially the Atlantic Coast and the Eje Cafetero (Coffee Growers’ Axis). And it is increasingly common to see young people of other nationalities enroll in our institution.​

Over the past several years, EAFIT also has set its sights on building an increasingly elite academic community that contributes to the region’s and country’s progress. As part of that mission, it carries out efforts such as a scholarship program that benefits nearly 16 percent of the student body.​

Faculty and Administrative Staff​​

The faculty is made up of nearly 370 full-time professors and 660 part-time professors who impart their knowledge and motivate students to strive for academic and research excellence. Thanks to a campaign to boost its faculty’s credentials, 92 percent of EAFIT’s professors hold a master’s or doctorate degree.​​

EAFIT’s human talent also includes nearly 1,200 administrative employees whose professionalism and commitment help ensure fulfillment of the institution’s objectives.​​


EAFIT makes its mark on society through its nearly 46,000 alumni, who have distinguished themselves in the private, public, and social sectors of Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia, and other parts of the world.

Studies conducted by the Labor Observatory for Education confirm that EAFIT graduates are highly sought after in different sectors and are among the best remunerated in Colombia.​​

Children and Senior Citizens​

Academic training at EAFIT begins from an early age thanks to Children’s University, a program that promotes knowledge acquisition by drawing on the natural curiosity of this segment of the population. ​​

This initiative brings the university’s research-generated storehouse of scientific knowledge to some 800 children and adolescents between the ages of 7 and 17 from different public and private schools.​

The program is divided into three phases: Question-Based Encounters, Knowledge Expeditions, and Science Projects. Each combines playful elements, reflections, and observations to build scientific knowledge that transforms these young minds and provides them with a fresh perspective on how to foster the country’s social development.​

And the learning process never ends at EAFIT. That is why the Knowledge for Life program, part of the Continuing Education Center, was created. This initiative offers diploma courses in different areas, wellbeing classes, and international programs for senior citizens.​

Nearly 500 participants benefit from this program, sharing the experience with their generational peers on the Medellín campus as well as at EAFIT Bogotá, EAFIT Pereira, and EAFIT Llanogrande.​​​
