About University of Montevideo

The University of Montevideo was originally founded in 1986 as the Instituto de Estudios Empresariales de Montevideo (IEEM). It offered masters degree programmes specialising in business law, economic law, and international trade law. It was then authorised by the Uruguayan government to operate as a private university in 1997.

The main campus is located in the Parque Batlle area of Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay. Home to almost half of the country’s population, Montevideo is a lively and cultural city. It is known for its art deco and neoclassical buildings as well as its colonial landmarks.

The university offers both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in many different subjects and disciplines. Students can choose to specialise within five schools, the Centre for Biomedical Science or the IEEM Business School.

Since its first partnership with an international university in 1991, the university has developed an extensive student exchange programme. With worldwide partnerships, the university offers students the chance to study abroad for a semester or a year at other universities. The university is committed to educating students in an international environment to ensure that they become global citizens with an understanding and appreciation for diversity.

Christianity is an important part of the university’s identity. Its mission is based on the teachings of St Josemarí Escrivá, founder of the Catholic Prelature of Opus Dei. He believed that holiness is universal and that God can be found in daily life. Although the university values these principles, it welcomes students of all faiths and beliefs.
