With the primary objective of raising the human and social condition of the men and women of Mexico and the world, in 1964 the Anahuac University was founded in its provisional headquarters in Lomas Virreyes, in Mexico City. In 1968 its first definitive campus was inaugurated in Interlomas, municipality of Huixquilucan, State of Mexico.
From the consolidation of this first university, the commitment to comprehensively train an increasing number of university students continued with great dynamism, promoting the emergence and integration of the rest of the institutions that today make up the Anáhuac University Network.
It was in 2000 when the Universidad Anáhuac Cancún opened its doors. On August 28 of that year, it received its first 147 undergraduate students, which began the first academic cycle. The degrees offered at that time were: Law, Communication, the common core of the Business School to study the degrees in International Business, Marketing, Business Administration and Public Accounting, and the common core of the School of Tourism to study the Bachelor’s degrees in International Tourism, Hospitality and Restaurant Management.
The goal in terms of admissions had not only been met but exceeded, and given the demand, on January 22, 2001 a new group of the first semester of the common business trunk was opened with 22 students.
As far as academic extension is concerned, the first diplomas were opened in October 2002 and the academic programs chosen for this were: Child and Adolescent Psychology, Iconography, and Senior Management. It is worth mentioning that for the latter, the University signed its first agreement with COPARMEX, which enrolled 35 prominent local businessmen to the course.
The university was taking its first steps and was beginning to position itself within the preferences of the community; each of the courses that came to Cancun found a pleasant response. Since then it was possible to foresee the exponential growth that the institution has had in these years.
