About the City

About The City

Being in one of the 20th-largest cities in the world has its benefits. Buenos Aires offers a vibrant theater district, shops, and different neighborhoods. Stately architecture and a steady influx of European immigrants have earned it the nickname, “the Paris of South America.” Founded in 1536, this surprisingly navigable Latin American metropolis shows glimpses of Europe and the Middle East in architecture and café life. A vibrant port city, Buenos Aires is also the world’s leading Spanish language publishing center. With a population of 13 million, Buenos Aires offers its visitors the chance to experience the perpetual cultural intrigue that can only be found in a city of this size and prestige.

Qué decir cuando hablamos de Buenos Aires? Seguramente muchas cosas, y aun nos quedaríamos cortos de palabras. Para comenzar, Buenos Aires es la capital de la Argentina. Es una ciudad portuaria vibrante, reconocida por sus numerosas bibliotecas, librerías, y variada vida cultural. ;Mucha gente la llama la “París de Sudamérica” debido a su mezcla de arquitectura clásica, moderna y colonial. La ciudad es también un referente del fútbol (soccer) en América Latina, reconocida por la pasión de sus aficionados y sus talentosos jugadores. Buenos Aires es renombrada también por la excelencia académica de sus universidades y su extensa tradición intelectual, siendo la ciudad natal de cinco premios Nobel. Todo esto (¡y mucho más!) existe en una metrópoli que es bulliciosa de día, y tiene una vida nocturna vibrante. Cuenta con una población diversa, políticamente activa y de alta conciencia social.

Academics

Academics

The Business and Culture semester program is designed for students who want to learn firsthand about business in Latin America – and Buenos Aires’ role as a key economic hub in the region – while developing their Spanish language skills. The program combines Spanish language courses at the beginning and intermediate levels with business and area studies courses taught in English. The program is appropriate for students of any major who have an interest in business and culture in Latin America and Argentina.

Academic Culture

Classes are typically scheduled during the mornings or afternoons, Monday through Thursday. Students should expect to have daily homework assignments and weekly quizzes. Most courses combine lectures with local field trips and excursions to help students gain a better understanding of the local culture and use their language skills with local residents.

Courses are designed to offer opportunities for students to draw connections between their theoretical and practical classroom-based learning and their cultural experiences that take place outside of the classroom. Each course will conduct several out-of-class activities in which students will be able to observe and interact with individuals and organizations representing the main topics covered by each course.

Learning outcomes will be assessed through personal reflections, evaluation feedback and self-assessment, and requirements as set out in course syllabi. For language, students will take a pre- and a post-program test to measure gains in oral proficiency.
