Icesi is a private university that was founded in 1979 by local business leaders, who have since contributed significantly to Icesi’s initiatives by providing financial, institutional, and networking support. Since its founding, our University has been systematic in pursuing its mission: The pursuit of learning, discovery, and knowledge and taking action to create a better world.
