Universidad de Buenos Aires
Created in 1821, the University of Buenos Aires is one of the most important public institutions of higher education in Latin America and is currently a national and international landmark for education and vocational training, research and university extension.
THE GOVERNMENT OF UBA
The government of the University of Buenos Aires is constituted by the Rector and the Superior Council. The Rector is elected by the University Assembly -– a representative organ of the Schools – and lasts four years in his functions.
The Superior Council is composed of theRector, the Deans of the thirteen Faculties and five representatives for each of the academic bodies: teachers, graduates, and students.
Each School has a government composed of the Dean and the Board of Directors, which consists of eight representatives of the Academic Staff, four of the graduates and four of the students, all of them elected by a direct and compulsory voting system.
The Board of Directors is the one that designates the Dean and Deputy Dean, positions that must be exercised by Professors of the same School.
In the era of globalization, the process of internationalization of Higher Education is constituted as an essential element in building the excellence of the University. On the one hand, UBA has focused on strengthening and consolidating this process through the promotion of academic, scientific and cultural exchanges and on the other, the social and cultural integration of the university community with other international peers.
In accordance with these objectives, the Secretaría de Relaciones Internacionales -Secretariat of International Relations- has developed a comprehensive policy of internationalization, through cooperation with other higher education institutions of academic excellence around the world; the management of exchange and mobility programs for undergraduate and graduate students, teachers and researchers; participation in International University Fairs; the promotion of scholarship programs and international projects; and academic cooperation through the French-Argentine, German-Argentine Centres and Confucius Institute.

The University of Buenos Aires -UBA- was created by a decree of the government of the Province of Buenos Aires in August 1821 and was formally inaugurated with a ceremony held at San Ignacio’s Church, constituting the second university founded in the territory of Argentina. It was initially organized into six departments: Letters, Preparatory Studies, Exact Sciences, Medicine, Jurisprudence, and Sacred Sciences.
In 1881, UBA became dependent on the National Government and in 1886 it assumed the organization in Faculties, the first one being: Medical Sciences, Law and Social Sciences, and Exact Sciences.
In its almost two centuries of history , it has become one of the most important public institutions of higher education in Latin America and is currently a national and international reference centre for education and vocational training, research and university extension.
