This fact sheet is a guide for you to complete your application to our international programs. The deadlines to do so are as follows: Undergraduate Students: Attending during the 1st semester (March July 2019): October 15, 2018 Attending during the 2nd semester (August December 2019): April 15, 2019 Graduate Students: Attending during the 1st quarter (March June 2019): October 15, 2018 Attending during the 2nd quarter (June September 2019): February 15, 2019 Attending during the 3rd quarter (September December 2019): May 15, 2019 Even though we welcome graduate students in either of the three quarters mentioned above, most of them visit us on the 3 rd quarter.

3 A B O U T U C E M A The Universidad del CEMA is a non-profit organization that currently offers seven undergraduate programs, nine graduate programs, and four executive programs within the areas of business, finance, economics, systems engineering and political science. This academic offer is complemented by actualization programs and customized programs designed for individual firms. At present time the University has 183 professors in its faculty, 4123 alumni and 1179 students. The Universidad del CEMA s mission is to contribute to the growth, development and well being of our community by generating the knowledge and forming the leaders that will transform and develop the worlds of business, academia and public policy. Key Differentiating Factors: Commitment to Research and Teaching: Teaching and research are core activities at UCEMA, integrated and taken seriously. We have a large staff of full time professors, devoted to teaching and research, but allowed to do some consulting for companies and government. Integration of Theory and Practice: UCEMA programs prepare people for action. Students are trained in the latest theories and models, seen as valuable tools that can be used to analyze and solve applied problems. Relevance and Institutional Impact: our students are trained on issues that are key to pursue transformational leadership roles, and leave UCEMA prepared to have an impact in their community. UCEMA itself as an institution and many of its faculty have played transformational leadership roles in the community. So have our alumni. Education Impact on Career Development: our educational programs are known to improve and broaden a person s possibilities of employment. Academic Freedom: we are firm believers in hiring the best faculty and letting them do what they know, in the framework of the highest standards of academic freedom. Continuous Education: UCEMA offers its alumni a wide variety of graduate programs and other continuous learning activities such as Seminars, Congresses, Workshops, etc. A main role of our formal educational process is to provide a solid foundation so the individual can take part in a constant process of learning. Students learn to learn, and we keep them inquisitive and intellectually active for life. Modern Curricula: the job market is being constantly renewed. A great part of the specific knowledge that students acquire during their formal education can become obsolete. UCEMA performs periodic revisions and updating of contents in order to have the most relevant and up-to date curricula. 2

4 A Network of Valuable Relationships: belonging to UCEMA means becoming part of a network of over 5,000 students and alumni, many of whom occupy leadership positions in the community. UCEMA keeps close ties with the business community. A C A D E M I C C A L E N D A R The academic year starts in March and ends in December. All classes - UG and PG - take place during this period. Summer holidays: January / February UCEMA is closed during January due to Summer holidays. During February, the university is open only for administrative purposes. 3
