Founded more than 40 years ago, EDP offers undergraduate and graduate programs through several modalities and experiences. In 2006, the institution became the first private independent institution in Puerto Rico to be accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education up to the master’s level. The institution obtained accreditation through 2011, complying satisfactorily with the 14 standards of excellence proposed by the accrediting organization.
