This study compared the reality of Ecuador and Peru in the face of the impact of Covid-19 on activities in higher education, once universities were forced to im-plement online education. Despite being neighbouring countries with similar cul-tures, different results were obtained. 302 students of careers related to business and administration and continued their studies in 2020, participated in this inves-tigation. It was found that 95% of the Ecuadorian students surveyed consider that they dominate the use of the internet, while in Peru 84% affirm the same. In Ec-uador, a higher percentage of students have access to technological equipment, which facilitates access to online education; 38.5% of the Ecuadorian students consider that virtual knowledge management has been efficient, so they have less interest in returning to face-to-face classes; while 45.6% of the Peruvian students show a predisposition to study online.
