A University in Tune with Its Surroundings

EAFIT inspires, creates, and also transforms. It therefore is attuned to the needs of its surroundings so it can respond accordingly and through its study centers provides a space for academic reflection on societally relevant issues.​


Urban and Environmental Studies Center (Urbam) 

Drawing on the experience of Medellín and the metropolitan region, the Urban and Environmental Studies Center (Urbam) emerged as an academic space for thought, critical reflection, and action pertaining to the city and the environment. Academia, public policy makers, and the private sector come together there to seek answers to problems from a broad-based and inter-disciplinary perspective.​

Asia Pacific Studies Center

EAFIT, in conjunction with the public and private sector, created the Asia Pacific Studies Center as a space for the university’s students, professors, and researchers to work together and expand their knowledge about issues relevant to that region. The center seeks to strengthen relations between Colombia and Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region through academic, research, and cultural initiatives. 

Center for Political Analysis 

The Center for Political Analysis carries out activities on four fronts: government and public policy; public and citizen security; political communication; and geopolitics and international relations. 
Its work involves consulting, advisory, outreach, and applied research activities. 
​The center is affiliated with the School of Humanities’ Government and Political Science Department. All of the academic and research efforts of the undergraduate program in Political Science are linked to the center with a view to offering a portfolio of services to public and private-sector institutions. 

Center for Strategic Thought 

The main objective of this space is to promote discussion and reflection on key issues related to societal development, while at the same time contributing to the goal of making EAFIT a point of reference for society, enhancing its prestige, and providing support to decision makers. The Center for Strategic Thought has served as an opinion leader for local, national, and foreign media. 

Center for Economic and Financial Research (Cief) 

This research center was created in 2012, coinciding with the founding of the School of Economics and Finance. Its purpose is to represent the university nationally and internationally, as well as to serve as a resource for the private sector and a generator of public policy. Finance and Banking, Economics of Education, Economics of Crime, Export Competitiveness, and Export Diversification are some of the lines of investigation being pursued in this academic space.​
