The Universidad Anáhuac was founded in 1964 as a fundamental part of the educational project of the Congregation of the Legionaries of Christ with the primary objective of raising the human and social condition of the men and women of Mexico through the student formation.

The Universidad Anáhuac México Norte began its activities in 1964, in a house located in Lomas Virreyes, with only 48 students in two majors: Business Administration and Economics. Under the presidency of Fr.Faustino Pardo L.C., in the following years, it opened: Psychology and Human Sciences in 1965, and Architecture and Law in 1966. At the same time, and thanks to the support of distinguished Mexican visionary men and businessmen, the construction of the new facilities in Lomas Anáhuac began.

The year 1968 was especially significant, not only did the first generation of Anáhuac alumni graduated, but the new campus was also inaugurated on June 4. Based on those years of effort and confidence in the future, the University was consolidated, which is today recognized as one of the most prestigious private higher education institutions in the country.

In 1981, the Government of the Republic recognized the quality of the Anáhuac by granting it the Right of Autonomy and Official Validity of Studies. That same year, to consolidate our Institution in the southern area of Mexico City, the Universidad Anáhuac México Sur was born, the first step in the creation of the Anáhuac Universities Network.

The Universidad Anáhuac México Sur began classes with the majors of Business Administration, Tourism Administration, Graphic Design, Industrial Engineering, and Industrial Relations. A year later, Actuarial Sciences, Electrical Engineering, and Electronic Engineering emerged.

In 2006, the Ministry of Public Education (SEP) granted recognition to the Universidad Anáhuac México Norte as an Institution of Academic Excellence, endorsing its academic quality and confirming its commitment to the training of positive action leaders, and one year later, in 2007 and just after its first 25 years, México Sur received the same distinction.

In 2009, the Ministry of Public Education gave the Universidad Anáhuac México Norte a recognition for the quality of its programs, which confirms that the majority of the programs studied by our students are endorsed by prestigious and demanding accrediting bodies.

In 2014, in order to remember our history with gratitude and pride, to live the present with passion and generosity, and to project ourselves to the future with vision and confidence, the Universidad Anáhuac Mexico Norte celebrated its first 50 years of life.

As of 2016, the process of Integration between the Anáhuac Mexico Norte and the Anáhuac Mexico Sur starts with the aim of bringing together the strengths of both institutions to form the Universidad Anáhuac México.

Mr. Cipriano Sánchez García, Legionary of Christ, was appointed as the new and first President of the Universidad Anáhuac México.
