USFQ was recently ranked as the #1 university in Ecuador by the QS Latin American University rankings. USFQ has a strong tradition of welcoming American students to its campus in Cumbayá, the valley immediately outside of Quito. At USFQ, students benefit from a campus that is reminiscent of a small liberal arts campus in the United States.
