University of Málaga

The University of Málaga was founded in 1972, as a State institution under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education and Science. The origins of the University of Málaga date back to the 1960’s, when the citizens of Málaga demanded its creation; its first department was the Faculty of Political, Economic and Business Sciences. After only 38 years, it has become the cultural center of the city and has an enrollment of nearly 40,000 students. The University strongly supports research and development that continually helps to bring Málaga into the 21st Century.
