Message from USIL founding president and chairman of the board of directors

Entrepreneurs training entrepreneurs


The San Ignacio de Loyola Education Corporation will soon be celebrating its 50th anniversary. We are proud of the way we have grown over the years and of all the achievements attained. Over time, we have improved our USIL educational model and specialized in every level of education, from prenatal care through the Coloring Dreams center for early childhood education through graduate studies at the USIL International Business School.


During this time, we have maintained the entrepreneurial spirit for which we are known. We began in 1968 with the San Ignacio de Loyola Academy, an educational institution that grew into the country’s first technological institute and, later, into our university. Along with the growth of our organization came new opportunities, such as the creation of San Ignacio de Recalde School, our Junior Achievement Peru programs, the USIL School of Culinary Arts, the USIL International Business School and the Institute of Entrepreneurs. In addition, we have engaged in international undertakings, such as San Ignacio de Loyola School and Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola in Paraguay, San Ignacio University and Coloring Dreams in Miami, and the BISU-USIL Peruvian Center for Latin American Studies in Beijing.


Today, we are proud to be able to say we have become one of the top Peruvian educational institutions and have 270 international strategic partnerships that make it possible for our students to go abroad and return to our country as entrepreneurial leaders that contribute to our country’s sustainable development.
