The university focuses on its students ability to undertake business, to turn initiatives into economic realities, to organize activities, to assure development and stability of business, to locate resources and employ effective methods of production, development of risk management capabilities and a working knowledge of the economic and political environment are some of the areas of instruction offered to students


Mission Statement

"To contribute to the economic and social development of the country by preparing men and women in business to enter an ever-changing world where they will use their skills to develop their own entrepreneurial ideas within an ethical context, led by mentors committed to academic excellence in order to develop coming generations as agents of change and as shapers of sustainable development" [3]


In 1992, the idea of creating an institution to rescue the business culture in Ecuador, to form professional business leaders which strengthen this sector, was the inspiration for founding an academic institution. In June, 1994; after a long preparation, research and curriculum development, Universidad Del Pacífico and the Fundación para el Desarrollo de la Cultura Empresarial started to work.

In 1997, after the favorable acceptance of the National Council of Universities and Polytechnic Schools (CONUEP), today the National Council of Superior Education (CONESUP)[4], the National Congress passed Law # 43[5], creating Universidad Del Pacífico – Escuela de Negocios, a non-profit private institution, specialized in developing entrepreneurs and professionals, with an international model of higher education and authorized to grant degrees at an Undergraduate, and Postgraduate level including Continuous Education, Masters and Ph.D levels.

Years of experience, the academic commitment of the founding business professionals of the University and its faculty resulted in the national and international recognition of the institution.

Universidad Del Pacífico (UPACIFICO) has three campuses at strategic development areas of the country: Quito, Guayaquil, and Cuenca; with the purpose of reaching a national synergy and a contribution to the country's integration.
