In 1960, Colombian business leaders founded Universidad EAFIT, Medellín's most prestigious private university and the first in Antioquia to receive High Quality Institutional Accreditation from the National Ministry of Education. While the university specializes in business courses, EAFIT's Spanish as a Foreign Language Program has 25 years of experience in teaching languages and has earned ACCET accreditation. The program was also the first in Colombia to be certified by the Cervantes Institute. Located near the hip El Poblado neighborhood, the U.S. style campus features native trees and flowers and modern buildings. Campus amenities include a cultural center, library, research cubicles and study rooms, computer labs, bank, healthy-food snack bar, cafeterias and restaurants, gym and pool.
