Know Us

San Marcos University has its origins in the first commercial school established in Costa Rica in 1922, under the name of Manuel Aragón School of Commerce, specialized in teaching Accounting and Commerce, a name that remained valid for many years. Our focus lies in the education of professionals with a profound sense of the present and a strong future vision, who contribute to the sustainable business development of the country. In addition to being pioneers, we are the only university in Costa Rica offering 100% virtual undergraduate programs approved by the Ministry of Public Education and CONESUP. Through these programs, students gain access to flexible schedules, state-of-the-art virtual platforms that are easy to connect to, quality services with academic support, and truly competitive prices. Campus Life: San Marcos University is an urban university located in the center of San José, in the historic Barrio Amón area, just 100 meters away from Morazán Park. Our on-campus programs are backed by the SINAES quality accreditation, which certifies our commitment to generating memorable, competitive, flexible, and socially responsible educational experiences.
