Abstract

Bucaramanga, the capital of the department of Santander, is not only a city with some of the best social indicators in Colombia, but also one whose economy has been growing faster than the other main Colombian cities. This document analyzes the importance of human capital, and how it´s related to economic growth and social welfare. The results show that Bucaramanga is a highly educated city with a strategic alliance between the public and private sectors in the pursuit of knowledge, for which academia, private sector, and government play an important role in joint research projects. RESUMEN: Bucaramanga, la capital del departamento de Santander, no solo es una ciudad con los mejores indicadores sociales de Colombia, sino que su economía viene creciendo a tasas superiores a las de las principales ciudades del país.
