4.0/5
Overall
The University, or UCA, as we call it, is located in one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city center, Puerto Madero. Considering that students will be spending half of their day or more at the university, this is not superficial info. On top of that, it's easily accessible with public transport, considering most of the metro and bus lines go through the zone in some way or another, and being the city center you can find pretty much everything you need in terms of cafes, restaurants and stores. 
As far as the academic side goes, UCA is a very prestigious argentinean university established in 1958 with a track record in preparing socially-conscious, ethical professionals across many different fields of study.
Communications at UCA is a perfectly well-rounded career, providing students with knowledge in cold, hard communications, as well as creativity, advertising and journalism, among others. Complemented with the university's traditional ethics, morals and religious studies, it makes the communicator a jack-of-all-trades for working in companies and agencies around the globe.
The bachelor in Advertising & Corporate Communications is qualified to take on the investigation, strategic planning, creative direction, administration and management of communications, both within specific agencies and within the advertising and corporate relations departments of different organizations or within the new media.
The religious aspect is another important subject to consider when choosing UCA. Many people believe that by studying at a catholic university it will be compulsory to engage in religious activity or at least apply a religious mindset to classes, especially those specifically teaching catholic religion. The reality was, much to my surprise, far better. The religious courses at UCA are based not on doctrine but on the theological understanding and analysis of religion as a whole, be it catholic or any other, taking students through a path of discovery and learning of an almost philosophical nature that wether you are interested or not in the religion itself, can add a lot to a professional's social development.

As far as cons go, the university does have one big flaw which is found in the way its administration is handled. Being one of the largest Argentinean universities to date, there is a lot of "red tape" involved in getting things done and it usually requires students to go through many administrative obstacles in order to get their claim through to whomever they want to reach. It makes it hard to get in direct contact with high-ranking officials within the organization and can mean extra effort on behalf of students to get their needs heard.

Cuando uno pasa la edad de la jubilación está fuera del circuito laboral .Creo que podría mejorarse en determinados casos y  que cada vez son más .
Creo es decir tomarlos y teniendolos como si fueran becarios con la misma exigencia y beneficios pero no desperdiciar esa gran cúmulo de conocimientos y aprovecharlos paraque puedan ser  impartidis y transmitidos sobre las nuevas generaciones.Pues  algo de esa experiencia humana espiritual en la toma de conciencia de cuales van a ser sus prioridades en el futuro frente a las Nuevas etapas de vida que van a enfrentar  merecen no solo  una nueva reorientación en su vocación para un buen desarrollode sus capacidades y así poder mantenerse activos y productivos sino  también para  poder transitar mejor su tránsito hacia su destino final es decir  la otra dimensión y aprender así sin melodramas con agradecimiento y  con simplicidad y conocimiento quesomos seres netamente espirituales que desapegamos del mundo dde la materia pero q  tenemos una conciencia cósmica alma espíritu como UD le llamé  que continua somos inmortales .Creados a imagen y semejanza puesque morimos a este tipo de vida y seguimos en otra dimensión .Esto es la meta del destino de nuestras vidasy el saber  aceptarlo .y capacitarse para transitar mejor es el futuro desafío .Y no solo tratar que sobrevivan sino que se embarquen con su deseo en tratar de llegar más sanos a su meta más aprontados y fortalecidos para lograrlo .Este es mi manera de pensar netamente seres de carne y hueso pero con destino trascendental .
