Furthermore Sapiens highlights that the areas of knowledge with active programs with the greatest offer are social and human sciences, economy and related careers. As opposed to agronomy and veterinary, fine arts, mathematics and natural sciences which have the least offer which may be related to low demand. 

Currently graduate program concentration is in the areas of social and human sciences, economy, business administration and accounting, insofar as most graduate program are of specializations and master’s programs. 

Regarding the general rankings of different Colombian universities, the report highlights Colombia has a good and ample graduate program offer, placing the country at less distance from the most developed countries in the world. 

According to Sapiens Research, the best postgraduate programs in Colombia are measured according to quality, experience and research. 

The 5,194 graduate programs ranked by Sapiens Research are classified by three ratings: AAA, AA and A (the least high). However the group explains that although in terms of quality Triple A is the best, all programs ranked as A have high quality. All programs classified as A are registered with the Colombian Ministry of Education. 

”They are all active because most of them are part of the best universities in research and because year after year they prepare their students with excellence and best quality standards,” said Carlos Roberto Peña Barrera, Director of Sapiens Research Group. 

Sapiens Research says these reports analyze the current graduate program situation of different higher education institutions in Colombia with the purpose of disclosing its most relevant features and in a special manner distinguish and choose, in the best possible way, the best graduate programs according to the ranks assigned by Post-Sapiens.
