History

La Facultad de Ciencias Administrativas y Sociales, abreviada como FCAyS, es una institución dedicada fundamentalmente a la enseñanza en las áreas de la Administración y las Ciencias Sociales. La Facultad pertenece a la Universidad Aut{onoma de Baja California y junto con otras escuelas, que son las de Ciencias de la Salud y la de Idiomas, constituyen la Unidad Valle Dorado de dicha Universidad en la ciudad de Ensenada, Baja California, México.

In November 1982, the creation of the School of Accounting and Business Administration (ECA, in Spanish), in Ensenada, was authorized in an extraordinary session of the University Council. It began its activities on August 13, 1984, with 60 students in the Public Accountant Educational Program. In the period 1985-2 begins the Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, and in the school year 1989-1, the Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology. The main circumstance that originated the creation of this school was the demand, due to the significant number of students who had to travel daily to the city of Tijuana to study to get the Bachelor's Degree in Public Accountant and Business Administration. The College of Public Accountants of Ensenada, A. C., through a commission headed by the Public Accountant Esteban Rodríguez León and the Public Accountant Mario Navarro Alcaraz made the request to the then Rector of the University Héctor Manuel Gallegos García. The Public Accountant Héctor Manuel Miramontes Soto was appointed as Founding Dean.

The first years were taught in facilities borrowed from the School of Engineering, to move in 1986 to occupy the first own facilities annexed to the School of Biological Sciences. In response to the challenges demanded by society of a higher quality education, in October 2002, the School of Accounting and Administration (ECA) obtained the accreditation of the educational programs of: Bachelor’s Degree in Public Accountant, Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology granted by the Council of Accreditation in the Teaching of Accounting and Business Administration, A. C. (CAECA, in Spanish), organization recognized by the Council for the Accreditation of Higher Education, A. C. (COPAES, in Spanish).

In response to the growing demand for expansion of the educational offer, in August 2003, it initiated the offering of educational programs: Bachelor's Degree on Science in Communication, Bachelor's Degree in Educational Sciences, Bachelor's Degree in Law, Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology, which is taught since 1998, as a venue outside the Faculty of Human Sciences (FCH, in Spanish), in the semi-schooled modality, being at that time the only program of its nature in the Baja California.
