There are many factors that are analyzed when choosing a university, but surely one of the most important is academic quality.

Students are looking for a place where they can learn everything they need to develop their dream career in the future. They hope to gain the theoretical knowledge and practical skills that will make them stand out when looking for a job. And they also want their university to be a differential when it comes to going out into the job market.

The quality of education is very important and, therefore, it is key that there are bodies that accredit this level. UADE is a University that aspires to the highest standards and with that objective constantly adds validations at a national and international level.

These accreditations are carried out by highly recognized associations or organizations at a global level, which certify the quality of the contents, the skills acquired by the students and the practical and professional training. "This is essential for the different careers, since it allows us to achieve international standards regarding the academic excellence of each discipline," explained Silvina Thernes, academic secretary of UADE.

There are different international certifiers that ensure the quality of UADE courses. The University is the first and only one in Argentina to be accredited by the ACBSP (Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs). It is an international association specializing in the accreditation of business schools and programs.

Careers in the area of public relations are endorsed by the international accreditor PRSA (Public Relations Society of America). Its main function is to work together on the academic quality of the curricula, with the aim of meeting the needs of the national and international markets.

Mr. Mariano Iovine, director of the Bachelor's Degree in Public Relations and Global Communication at UADE, received together with his students and colleagues from the United States the international certification of both careers, within the framework of the annual conference of the PRSA (Public Relations Society of America)

For the Tourism and Hospitality career, the endorsement of the UNWTO/UNWTO (World Tourism Organization-UN) is very important. The organization recognizes educational institutions that meet high standards of educational quality and that prepare their graduates for both labor and entrepreneurship, in accordance with the international requirements of tourism and hospitality. No other race in Argentina achieved this certification from a specialized UN agency.

The accreditation of the IAA (International Advertising Association) is one more differential of UADE for the Bachelor's Degree in Advertising, since other universities do not have it. "This is a valuable reference that ensures the training of professionals capable of working efficiently in Argentina or anywhere in the world. This endorsement evidences the quality of the graduates' training and facilitates their international projection," said Thernes.

Since 2011, UADE's Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Food Technology has been internationally certified by the IFT (Institute of Food Technologists) in the United States. It is the first university in Latin America to achieve this distinction and the only one in Argentina.

UADE also has agreements with different programs with the aim of certifying certain specific competencies. For example, students of the Economics careers have this validation through BMC (Bloomberg Market Concepts). Finance students gain access through the CFA and CIIA. Meanwhile, those who study the career of Certified Public Accountant have the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants).

At the same time, students can certify their competencies and skills in business through exams and participation in workshops in different subjects: Google Ads: Display and Search; Google Analytics; Major Field for Business (ETS); and Introduction to Process Modelling and Automation (BDO).

All this is extremely important to guarantee the academic quality of the courses and is a great differential with respect to other universities. Internationalization strategies began several years ago at UADE and generate a competitive advantage.

Academic quality first and foremost

To sustain excellence in education, UADE carries out a permanent review and monitoring work in different aspects, which leads to an improvement in the comprehensive training of students.

Disciplinary training is carried out for members of the teaching staff, as well as postgraduate training is promoted, in order to enhance the academic and professional profile of the teachers of the different careers.

At UADE, teachers are trained according to international standards.

In addition, all careers that compromise the public interest are periodically accredited by the National Commission for University Evaluation and Accreditation (CONEAU). It applies to those that grant qualifications corresponding to professions regulated by the State, the exercise of which could compromise the public interest by directly jeopardizing the health, safety, rights, property or training of the inhabitants.

"Over the last 20 years, UADE has systematically submitted a large number of careers to these accreditation processes, among which the following stand out: Public Accountant; Advocacy; Architecture; Computer Engineering; Food Engineering; Electronic Engineering; Electromechanical Engineering; Industrial Engineering; Bachelor's Degree in Biotechnology; Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and all the Postgraduate Degrees included in its academic proposal," Thernes concluded.

UADE courses are nationally and internationally accredited by these prestigious institutions
