Los primeros programas de economía en Colombia


  • Alvaro Montenegro García



La Economía, como tema de cátedra universitaria y área del saber, parece haberse consolidado durante el siglo XVIII en Europa, conociéndose inicialmente como economía política. Fue solo hacia 1900 cuando el término 'economía' comenzó a popularizarse. La Universidad Javeriana ofreció la primera carrera universitaria de economía en Colombia a través de su Facultad de Ciencias Económicas y Jurídicas fundada en 1931, cuyo programa tenía una duración de cinco años en el cual, dependiendo del programa escogido, el alumno podía recibir el título de doctor en Ciencias Económicas, doctor en Derecho, o doctor en Ciencias Económicas y Jurídicas.
