The University is based in Manta , one of the top five cities in Ecuador , riverside city to the sea, one of the most important fishing centers of the South Pacific, and great touristic development potential. It is also a city which is projected as a possible future international transfer port. The ULEAM primarily serves the youth of the third province of Ecuador which has a population of over one million two hundred thousand inhabitants.

University Gives to Manta an unquantifiable contribution in order to become it into a city of vigorous development. It is a humanistic University with a clear secular conception of education and the most demanding educational freedom, defining the student as the great actor of it's own training and the teacher as the facilitator of a great professional future. In this context it conceives its academic offering with diversity in mind, in order to meet the different aspirations of young people wishing to pursue a college education, within the understanding that educational processes are dynamic and has to be adjusted to the requirements of the youth and the rapid evolution of the contemporary world.

Tn terms of institutional objectives there is a properly organized and cohesive work involving the governing authorities, academic units and departments, because as the ULEAM president says, a good directive is a good working team.
