"Argentine University of Enterprise") is a private university in Buenos Aires, Argentina with a satellite campus in Pinamar.[1] Its mission is "to produce graduates with entrepreneurial skills, by providing advanced technology and modern management education, based on sound ethical values." It is recognised worldwide by ACBSP (Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs), PRSA (Public Relations Society of America), IAA (International Advertising Association) and TEDQUAL (Tourism Education Quality).

History[edit]

UADE is an institution with fifty years of university teaching was founded in 1957 by members of the Cámara Argentina de Sociedades Anónimas as the Instituto Superior de Estudios de la Empresa. Its activities began in the building of Belgrano Av. 687 under the direction of Dr. James Wainer, and with a total of 338 business executives enrolled. The first class was delivered by Dr. Anwar Obeid who spoke about "The corporation: its importance and influence in the development of the modern world." At the end of that year, to arrange education and higher education in a comprehensive manner, the Institute became the Argentina Foundation for Advanced Business Studies. It aimed to promote training in all disciplines related to the development of social enterprise as an economic institution, considering the specific problems of the real business in Argentina.Around 500 business leaders completed the course in 1958 and the following year, in a large ceremony held at the Plaza Hotel in Buenos Aires, the course for 1959 was opened. At the event, the Minister of Economy, Dr. William W. Klein, the Secretary of State for Trade, Dr. Joseph C. Orfila, and the Minister of Education and Justice, Dr. Luis Mac Kay (who spoke on behalf of the President of the Republic, Dr. Arturo Frondizi) delivered their speeches. The growth process was consolidated in 1962 when, in the context of the Law 14,557 of 1958 authorizing the operation of private universities in the country, the Chamber of Corporations decided to create the UNIVERSIDAD ARGENTINA DE LA EMPRESA, whose statutes were approved by that institution on June 7, 1963 and the National Executive Power on August 27 of that year.

In 1963, the first degrees were offered in areas of special interest for business: "Marketing," "Costs", "Finance and Organisation", "Organisation of Production" and "Industrial Relations" . In 1964 other degress were added, such as "Business Applied Statistics", "Market Research", "Public Relations", "Management Techniques" and "Production Engineering and Construction Organization."

In 1968, the Universidad Argentina de la Empresa joined the Council of Rectors of Private Universities (CRUP), after the Law 17,604, passed in that year, institutionalized the agency's performance in the educational activity in Argentina, recognizing it as a representative body in the planning and action of the private sector, acting as an adviser for the National Executive Power.

In 1984, the headquarters of the Lima St. 717 were inaugurated and, subsequently, in 1992, 1993, 1997 and 1998 new buildings were added to create the current building complex in Lima, functionally integrated, bringing all the faculties and departments of the University together. In 2000 the Faculty and Alumni Club was added, in an annex building on Chile St., thus extending the facilities that make the UADE urban campus the most modern in Argentina. In 2003, the School of Management (EDDE) was opened on Freedom St. 1340, with the purpose of developing a new business generation in the country. Finally, in 2005, the UADE University Residence was opened, which is capable of accommodating 105 local and foreign students.

In 2008, the Urban Campus UADE UADE was opened with the objective of helping students to live a comprehensive and complete college experience. The campus includes a Residence Hall, a Model Library, a Cultural and Exhibition Centre, a Sports Center and a Microstage with capacity for 1,200 people,which with the 181 classrooms and laboratories account for more than 75,000 m2.

In 2009, UADE and CONICET, the main body for the promotion of science and technology in Argentina, signed an Agreement on Scientific and Technological Cooperation which will develop an extensive interaction between the two institutions. In this regard, co-financing will be sought with the CONICET doctoral fellowships as well as the possibility that researchers from this body can develop their work of study in UADE.

Finally, the UADE Labs were set up in May 2010. This is a building of 9000 m2 which is presented to national and regional level as the first integrated university laboratory building in the country. In it, students in 51 undergraduate and graduate programs will attend annually 60 thousand hours of practice and research.[2]
