UNIVERSIDAD SAN FRANCISCO DE QUITO
Universidad San Francisco de Quito USFQ is a leader in education, research, creativity, entrepreneurship and freedom in Latin America. It seeks to form free-thinking, innovative, creative, and entrepreneurial individuals within the framework of the Liberal Arts, an educational philosophy in which all disciplines of knowledge are of equal importance. Founded in 1988 by Santiago Gangotena through the Corporación de Promoción Universitaria, and in response to the need for a high quality private institution of higher education in Ecuador, it was the first fully self-financed university. It is named in honor of the capital city of the country: San Francisco de Quito.
Since the First Class, the acceptance of an applicant has been a recognition of his or her human potential and intellectual capacity, and not a right. Students have full autonomy to learn within the ideological framework of their preference, within the USFQ Honor Code.
The USFQ community: students, professors and graduates have contributed to the development of higher education through scientific research, artistic creativity and entrepreneurship, and therefore the welfare of society.

Education is a strategy for the sustainable growth of companies because it achieves better individual performance, business competitiveness, and contributes to the development of societies around the world. As in productive and social areas, business education continues to evolve to strengthen the academy-business relationship and continuously improve the training of business leaders.
Management has evolved from its scientific approach, through management by objectives and technological development, to a focus on people. The development of talent is a key and transversal ally of any organizational mission and today is considered a sustainable strategy that requires the continuous learning of its managers.
Competencies, which are the sum of knowledge, skills and attitudes, require continuous updating, and although the debate persists about which managerial competencies are the most relevant, their importance lies in accepting the richness of their diversity, globality and potential impact on others. Beyond updating knowledge in quality and productivity, talent development, finance, management and strategy, leadership, marketing and sales, research indicates that managers and professionals need to continuously update leadership competencies focused on results (vision and change management), people (communication and relationship) and the person (self-leadership).
At Escuela de Empresas we foster the development of leaders committed to corporate integrity and freedom. For us, leadership is a service and performance discipline that promotes the mental and moral maturity of people, and that is only possible if it is cultivated first and foremost in oneself. Business education is undoubtedly a way to achieve this.
We invite you to be part of a community of leaders who believe and invest in themselves and are willing to mature their critical thinking, liberal and entrepreneurial spirit to improve their personal and business performance for the benefit of society.
We have master’s degrees in face-to-face mode in:
- Business Administration, accredited by the Association of MBAs – AMBA.
- Master in Business Finance.
- Master in Marketing.
