Universidad Icesi, is a private, nonprofit University in Cali, Colombia, founded in 1979 by regional business leaders who still support the University in many ways, including financially.

Icesi's campus sits on 35 acres of prime real estate in Cali, a vibrant hub of industries and universities, with a mix of cultures and access to the Pacific basin markets. Construction of the campus began in 1989; today, it consists of 23 state-of-the-art buildings with cutting-edge technology. Universidad Icesi was created through the generous donations of leading companies involved in the institution’s governing bodies through their representatives on the Board of Trustees and the Board of Directors. The participation of these business leaders in our governing bodies guarantees engagement, innovation, and impact in our major strategic decisions.

Universidad Icesi offers 29 Undergraduate programs, 33 Master’s programs, 26 Medical specialties, and 2 Doctoral programs, as well as a diverse portfolio of Executive Education programs that meet the needs of professionals with various academic backgrounds.

Our students represent the academic elite in Colombia. Our admission criteria are highly selective, and the undergraduate programs consistently rank in the top ten in the SABER PRO standardized national test.
