The University of Commercial Sciences (Spanish: Universidad de Ciencias Comerciales) (UCC), is a private university located in Managua, Nicaragua and founded in 1964.[1][2]


In 1964, Carlos Narváez Moreira founded the Institute of Commercial Sciences, that would later become the Center of Commercial Sciences, offering a technical degree in Accountancy and Finance. In the following years the academic offering was expanded and included Senior Technical Executive Secretariat, Business Executive, Public Relations Executive and Marketing and Advertising.

On April 3, 1997, the National University Council changes the category of the UCC from a Superior Technical Education Center to University.[3]
