"Argentina is such a fascinating, beautiful, confusing, and diverse country, and being able to witness it firsthand was one of the highlights of my college career. Living and learning in another country was so rewarding, and the experience gave me a whole new excitement for life. Now I always look for opportunities to practice my Spanish and the other skills I learned there. I'm so glad I made the leap to study in Argentina!"
-Molly, Program Advisement Intern
Students take two courses collectively worth 6 US credits throughout their four-week program: Doing Business in Latin America and Latin American Economy. In addition to these courses, students will also take Spanish lessons aimed at providing a better understanding of the language and culture of Argentina.
The seminar focuses on providing the student an international vision of trade and business opportunities. It stresses the particularities of Latin American countries, local organizations and ways of doing business, in addition to discussing different trade theories and their applications to Latin American economies. Topics help students to develop the ability to understand the complexities of international context and the way these scenarios facilitate or hinder business opportunities. Students will acquire basic knowledge of the different tools available to develop an international business strategy.
The course focuses on a variety of issues regarding Latin America Economics. The topics covered in class include long term issues as development, economic and institutional determinants of productivity and inequality, new opportunities and strategic decisions that arise from the challenges and opportunities of global economic changes, especially the growing importance of Asian countries. Accordingly, there will be a mix of historical and contemporary economic issues for Latin American countries, which will be complemented by economic models and empirical evidence.
