Wall Street Institute Colombia Wall Street Institute has been teaching people English in Colombia for 15 years. The first center opened in1997 in Bogota, and was located at the corner of 9th Avenue and 70th street in the core of the financial, commercial, and university district.
Shortly after that first center opened, 2 more centers opened in the Parque Central Bavaria and Santa Barbara districts, which provided coverage to the downtown area and north part of Bogota.
In 2003, the flagship center was relocated to 7th Avenue, one of the main streets in the city but still very near the most important financial area. Since then, Wall Street Institute Colombia has executed a well planned expansion process across the city. The expansion plans were helped by strong economic growth in Colombia and the effectiveness of WSI’s proven blended learning method.
Now, WSI Colombia has 11 centers throughout the country with an enrollment of 3200 students. Nine centers are located in Bogota, one is in the city of Medellin, and one is in the city of Bucaramanga.
In the upcoming months, WSI Colombia will continue their expansion with the opening of two new centers in Bogota. The first opening will be in July. The new center is in the south part of the city at Centro Mayor Shopping Center. In August, the 13th center in Colombia will open at the Cafam Floresta Shopping Center, located in the northwest part of the city.
In addition to their traditional centers, WSI Colombia also has a center on the campus of Rosario University, one of Colombia’s most prestigious universities. WSI Colombia also is the English language provider for the students at The Colombian Physiotherapy Institution.
