  • By generating academic exchange opportunities with universities abroad –those which Universidad EAN has agreements with.


It is advisable for students to have constant access to a computer with internet access. The minimum requirements for having access to the virtual platform of Universidad EAN are as follows: a PC holding a Pentium processor, at least 1 GB RAM, internet access, and the Microsoft Windows XP operating system or an advanced version.

Universidad EAN uses campus platforms and virtual classrooms to facilitate not only the access to different services but also the academic interaction between students and tutors. Consequently, the campus becomes the university environment for the student, and the virtual classrooms become the classrooms.

It is necessary to install always the last version of Java programs, and browsers other than Internet Explorer.
