Our institution was founded as an innovative option in education, fostering entrepreneurship in our students. We offer education in business management in all of our programs, as well as a holistic scientific and humanistic education. USIL offers modern infrastructure, with all of the facilities and equipment students need for an optimum education experience. The university has four campuses, three of which are located in the city of Lima and one in the city of Cusco.
The business spirit is our constant source of inspiration and one of the distinctive traits of our students’ education. We cultivate an entrepreneurial culture, built on a solid ethical and moral foundation that fosters innovation, leadership, competitiveness and the creation of value, enabling students to identify and take full advantage of business opportunities.
We are committed to contributing to social development and improvement in the quality of life of those with the lowest incomes. Putting solidarity into practice, our university carries out activities geared toward sustainable development and instills awareness and sensitivity regarding their responsibilities as citizens, for the purpose of overcoming inequality, fighting extreme poverty and promoting inclusion.
Our global perspective prepares our students to perform effectively and efficiently anywhere in the world. Over a hundred strategic partnerships with academic institutions all over the world, corporate presence in different countries and our being a bilingual institution enable our organization to offer an education with a global outlook, meeting the highest international standards.
