Impossible to know, but it would not make a big difference considering that the quality of our Universities (public & private) cannot be compared with the quality of the most advanced countries. The increasing corruption is affecting the quality of our institutions. If we had good law Universities, Argentina would not suffer from a high level of insecurity.
I prefer a private University degree over a public degree because I do not agree with the 0 cost education for students older than 18. I believe they should pay at least a symbolic fee. (Specially those students who come from affluent families).
Unfortunately in Argentina we do not have prestigious Universities that can be compared with those from the most advanced countries, so then ... our success depends on our effort and the experience we can obtain working at international companies. I have heard many people saying that having a degree from a University with a poor administrative organization and infrastructure is more valuable than having a degree from a prestigious and organized University such as MIT (I do not share this thought). To me, a good University is an institution that provides students with good tools. The quality of an University and the intelligence of a person are two separate things; if a graduated professional from a gloomy University is smart to succeed this means that the graduated professional is very smart and capable and deserves a recognition. But, it does not mean that the University is a prestigious organization that improves the quality of our lives, so then.. to me at this point if she has or does not have a degree, it is not something important for Argentineans.
The first private university in Argentina was UCA founded in the 50' (private University was almost inexistent at that time), and the quantity of students was too low compared to a public University. Just in the last 10 years the number of students has been increasing at private Universities because of affordable costs and its quality. Argentina should have more Nobel prizes specially in the last few years. If I am not wrong, the last Nobel prize was for Cesar Milstein in 1984 (almost 31 years ago during Alfonsin government) and it seems he had a high foreign influence.google UBA + Nobel Prizes and then compare to ANY private school, in Argentina or Latin America.
