The Buenos Aires Institute of Technology (ITBA) is the first and leading private university specialised in teaching and research in engineering, technology and management in Argentina. Since 1959, ITBA has been renowned for its academic excellence and for its commitment to generating and transferring innovative knowledge to society. Despite its small size (2,500 students), ITBA’s faculty and students have received several national and international awards. The university’s rigorous admissions criteria and low student to faculty ratio have resulted in one of the highest student retention rates in engineering in the country. ITBA graduates have one of the top employment rates and entry salaries in Argentina and occupy leading positions around the globe. Among ITBA’s unique traits are its links to 50 of the world’s best universities, the private and public sector (with more than 500 agreements with industry) and leading international research bodies. ITBA offers a cosmopolitan academic experience in a multicultural community. Its location in downtown Buenos Aires is walking distance from some of the city’s historical and cultural landmarks.
