Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), one
of South America’s most prestigious universities, is an institution that
educates, researches and promotes knowledge, culture, and development. Located
in the capital city of Lima, UPC prides itself on its creativity and
innovation, being the first global university in Peru. UPC offers over 30 areas of study within the fields of Management in Hospitality and Tourism, Architecture, Contemporary Arts, Health Sciences, Humane Sciences, Communications, Law, Economics, Business and Engineering.
Lima is situated on the coast of the Pacific and is one of the largest desert towns in the world, making the contrasts of the city striking. Near the pre-Inca pyramids that survived the Spanish conquest and modern civilization are beautifully restored colonial mansions dating back to the 17th century. Not only is Lima physically beautiful, but it also offers a unique blend of cultural history and global modernization.
