Abstract

Financial constraints and the scarce economic resources available in universities are essential barriers that young people find to enter and successfully conclude with a university degree in the Latin American region. Given this problem, this research focused on two cases of private university education institutions (HEIs) that implement innovative financing mechanisms that generate social and economic value for students. These institutions stand out for including in their mission statements these dimensions that seek to reduce the inequality gap in access to higher education. The research uses a qualitative approach with the study of two universities located in Peru and Colombia. The data collection was based on interviews with managers of HEIs, on the observation of the study environment and the analysis of documents and institutional financial reports of the two institutions. The results indicated that HEIs develop financing mechanisms based on commercial and non-commercial transactions. The information obtained allowed us to conclude that business units, as generators of social and economic value for students and universities, are transcendental for the economic and sustainable growth of the institutional mission.
