The UCEMA (Spanish: Universidad del CEMA)[1] is a private university in downtown Buenos Aires, Argentina. UCEMA is a non-profit private organization whose beginning dates back to 1978. First founded as a research center (Centro de Estudios Macroeconómicos de Argentina) with the objective of contributing to the economic development of the country, the university now offers seven undergraduate programs, nine graduate level programs, and three executive programs in business, finance, economics, computer engineering and political science. At present, UCEMA has more than 262 faculty members with terminal academic degrees in their fields of study, 6068 alumni and 2012 students.

The installations are fully equipped with the latest technology and include the Adrian Guissarri Library and Documentation Center (containing more than 29,000 volumes), an auditorium, a space for art exhibitions, an information and computing center, a reading room and several study rooms throughout the university.
