Since its founding, ESAN efforts have been directed at strengthening the professional management in Peru and Latin America on the basis of international standards. For this purpose, has maintained a close relationship with the most prestigious academic institutions worldwide.

International links, initially confined to the United States and Canada, have gradually expanded to include organizations of the Americas, Europe and Asia.

ESAN continues to be fully immersed in an internationalization process, maintaining strategic links with prestigious institutions in the five Continents, and keeping a permanent and stimulating dialogue with their authorities and members. Through this effort we offer our faculty, students and alumni, new dimensions of knowledge and opportunities for professional and personal growth.

Our MBA has been formulated within the frame of the strictest international academic standards, with topnotch instructional and information technology and under the academic responsibility of a qualified management experienced faculty. It has international recognition, reflected in 6 double-degrees and over 60 one or two semester exchange agreements. Spanish language courses are also available to students and faculty.

We encourage international students from partner universities and schools to come to ESAN and to Peru, and to embrace the challenges of a unique professional and personal experience.

Peru presents interesting social characteristics such as its racial and cultural heterogeneity, its economic and social reality and a population growth that
has surpassed the Latin American average.

Our school is based in the suburbs of Lima, the country's capital, located on the coast. It takes a 15-minute drive to get to the beach and a 1-hour ride to reach the Andes skirts. The jungle is accessible by land or plane.

The city of Lima, also known as "The City of the Kings" is one of the most attractive Latin American capital cities to live in. It is a pleasant and safe modern city adequate for professional development, especially because it is a strategic city for multinational firms operating in the region.
