The Lusófona University of Humanities and Technologies is the largest private university in Portugal. It first opened its doors in 1987 in Lisbon under the ownership of Grupo Lusófona, a Portuguese private investment group focused on the development of higher education institutions in the countries of Lusófonos. Since then, the Lusófona University has opened semi-autonomous branches in Porto, Luanda, Mindelo.
