Organization profile

The Financial and Applied Accounting Research Group (GIFCA) is composed of professors and researchers from the Accounting and Auditing career at the Salesian Polytechnic University in Guayaquil. GIFCA carries out studies on financial trends (international, public and corporate) emphasizing their link with the economic development of Ecuador; on the processes of cost management in different types of institutions, on the processes of integral audit and on the pedagogical processes of accountant training. These aspects are approached by the group from different perspectives, from the research itself, the presentation in national and international congresses, the teaching in pre and post grade, as well as in the improvement of the pedagogical and methodological work of the career. The aim is to consolidate a perspective of analysis that takes into account the economic, financial, accounting, social and human dimensions of the processes studied.
