On April 24, 1986, the opening of the International University of the Americas was approved by the National Council for Private University Education (CONESUP), being the first private university higher education institution approved by this body. He began his work in a building located east of the capital in Barrio La California, where he taught the careers of Business Administration, Preschool Education, International Trade, Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering, English, and Tourism.
At the end of the eighties and beginning of the nineties, the new campus was built where today the facilities of the main headquarters are located, located on 23rd street and 7 bis avenue in the Aranjuez neighborhood of the city of San José in front of the complex cultural Old Customs. Currently, the International University of the Americas has 21 careers that cover the areas of health, engineering, architecture, economics, social sciences, and languages in the baccalaureate, bachelor, and master degrees.
The University was born with the slogan of being a benchmark in private higher education, which has become evident over the years, leaving its mark on the training of professionals integrated into the labor market. Today we want to continue the story walking towards the future with optimism, constantly renewing ourselves, adopting new teaching methodologies in accordance with the demands of the time, expanding our resources for research, and projecting ourselves with greater force to society to detonate change.
