Business Argentina: Foster Faculty-Led Program

The Business Argentina Program is now open! Applications are due July 1, 2023. Learn more and apply here.

Make sure to check out all the Foster Undergraduate Study Abroad Options.

Program Details

Every two years, Foster undergraduate students travel abroad during Winter Quarter to earn their required upper division business core courses abroad in an intimate cohort setting with top Foster Faculty. In 2020 the program went to Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2022 to Rome, Italy, and in 2024 the program will return to Argentina. This Foster Faculty-Led Program is a tremendous opportunity to stay on track with Foster coursework, learn about the vibrant country of Argentina, connect with Foster peers, and building meaningful relationships with Foster Faculty.

On the Business Argentina Program: Business Core Abroad, students will take their courses from Foster Faculty at the Universidad de San Andres (UdeSA) downtown campus in the heart of Buenos Aires. The UdeSA facilities are in the beautiful Recoleta neighborhood, a part of town which is extremely well connected by public transportation and surrounded by parks, restaurants, cafes and boutiques. The program is designed to enhance the business courses with an international dimension. The courses will bring in case studies or examples that tie the material to what you are experiencing in Latin America. Additionally, students will have opportunities to see real-world applications of the principles through both company visits by the group and individual observations. Possible visits include a new start-up HUB as well as state-owned and private enterprises. Throughout the quarter, students will also engage in a variety of cultural activities and excursions such as an ‘Asado’ at an Argentinian Estancia and a Tango show.

Eligibility: Current Foster undergraduate majors who have completed their lower division business core courses before departure.
