This paper have intended describe the first commerce colleges in Colombia, and the first Universities that create the Accounting program in the country. At the second half fo XIX century begin the teaching of comercial knowledges and the mercantil accounting. The phrase “public Accounting” dont exist, in this place was used the phrase “Bookeeping”; is important to mention that before the foundation of “Commerce Schools” is possible find schools or universities that although not be really mercantils schools, offer subjects matters. A clearly example is the National Mining School, that formed engineers with a comercial orientariosn and receibed instruction like Industrial Acounting. That`s how the Account Proffesion take relevance in the country combined with the neccesities of the people (comerciants principally) and the State, driven for the economic growth of these years.
