The Universidad Panamericana (commonly known as UP, English: Panamerican University) is a private Catholic university located in Mexico. The university's Law School is ranked as one of the nation's best. The IPADE, the UP's business school, is ranked as one of the best in the world, having more than 15,000 Mexican and international CEOs as graduates. It has two main campuses, one is located in Mexico City and in Guadalajara.

History

UP was founded in 1967 as a business school. A group of wealthy businessmen and academics gave life to the Panamerican Institute for High Business Direction (Instituto Panamericano de Alta Dirección de Empresas), later they promoted the creation of a university. The Panamerican Institute of Humanities (Instituto Panamericano de Humanidades- IPH), founded in 1968, merged with the IPADE and created the Panamerican University. It was all done under the spiritual direction of Opus Dei, a personal prelature of the Catholic Church.

In 1978, the IPH was given University rank and took the name Universidad Panamericana, eventhough the IPADE and IPH conceived from their origins the universal and unitarian knowledge.

It began with 2 programs: Pedagogy and Administration. During the 1970s new programs were added including Law and Philosophy (1970), Economics and Business Administration (1977), and Industrial Engineering (1978). New programs were added in the 80’s and 90’s including:Electromechanic Engineering, Accountancy (1981), Informatics, Marketing, International Business, Finance (1993) and Medicine (1996).

Motto and Coat of Arms

Ubi spiritus, libertas (Where the spirit is, there is freedom) is the university's motto, it synthesizes the educative philosophy. Love to freedom in a space where the human spirit is cultivated: therefore, love to authentic freedom.

The University's arms is formed by two elements: The red square and the blue band in the golden left side, which represent the coat of arms used by Christopher Columbus when he discovered the Americas, they simbolize Panamericanism.

In the right side, on top of a golden bottom, there's an Oak, symbol of strength. Its roots are the diverse sources of integral development; the four ramifications symbolize the Cardinal Virtues: Prudence, Justice, Fortitude and Temperance; the leaves and acorns represent the rest of the virtues, which derive of the fundamental four.

Schools and Faculties

The University is divided by both schools and faculties. As of 2007 there are 5 faculties and 4 schools:
  • School of Nursing (''Escuela de Enfermería)
  • School of Medicine (Escuela de Medicina)
