This daily news cooperative was created as an alliance between journalists and critical citizens and as such is managed in a cooperative way. It is the second newspaper in sales in Uruguay, and 80% of its income comes from membership fees. In its twelve years, it has proven itself to be an innovative information company, not only because of its journalistic approach but also for having created its own a marketing channel that allows it to control the entire chain.
Located in Montevideo and other cities in the country, this is the oldest private university in Uruguay with the widest coverage within the national territory, and it represents the main work of the Catholic church in Uruguayan higher education. Its commitment to academic excellence, ideological pluralism, ecumenism, and inter-religious dialogue has made it a leading institution in Uruguay’s cultural life.
The foundation manages a network of twenty-four Catholic educational institutions and seeks to improve these schools’ academics and provide quality education for over 4000 students of disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds. Reading, Mathematics, and English are the three main axes of pedagogy. To monitor the students’ improvement, standards are being applied in all participating schools, and practices are being systematized in the different school grades.
The mission of the business school is to train responsible leaders who contribute to the integral development of society, through quality and demanding teaching, supported by the investigation of the problems inherent in the management of organizations. The business school’s research center combines in its research the impact of economic and social phenomena on Uruguayan companies.
