Universidad Empresarial de Costa Rica, also known as UNEM or Business University of Costa Rica, is a private university in the city of San José, Costa Rica. It is not among the universities accredited by the Sistema Nacional de Acreditación de la Educación Superior (SINAES), the national accreditation agency of Costa Rica. In 2013 it was described by The Costa Rica Star as "infamous" for its involvement in several diploma mill allegations, in cases where students paid to receive degrees without following a course of study. The university has awarded PhD degrees to people in Germany and the United States. A 2008 investigation by Der Spiegel failed to find any legitimate campus or professors associated with UNEM.

The university reported no graduates in 2007, and enrolled no students in 2010; it may be inactive.
