On 13 April 1998, Centro Universitàrio IESB (English: CESB, the Center of Higher Education of Brasilia) was founded, aiming to be an institution that developed education, research and extension activities of a higher level. After four years, the Ministry of Education authorized the two first undergraduate courses: Education Science and Administration, with concentrations in Science and Technology Policy and Management and Human Resources. In 1998, two more courses were authorized: Legal Sciences and Social Communication, with concentrations in Journalism, Advertising and Marketing.
