Get a taste of la vida porteña by spending eight weeks interning for a company located in Buenos Aires. As the capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires is one of the most diverse and cosmopolitan cities of South America. Called the “Paris of South America,” this city of over 3.5 million people is full of arts, food, music, and sports.
Interns will work with a team based in Buenos Aires and will have frequent engagement with their supervisor and working teams. Interns will also interact frequently with our internship provider, Puentes Abroad, who will coordinate additional internship oversight, professional development seminars, and cultural activities.
During this summer experience, you will apply the theories and concepts you’ve learned in class to a professional international working environment, learning and practicing the customs, behaviors and norms of another culture.
The skills you develop on this internship will transform you as a leader and give you a distinct competitive advantage in the job market. Along with practicing fundamental workplace skills, you will prove that you can work in a diverse environment, adapt to change, be a flexible problem solver and integrate successfully into a diverse and cross-cultural team—all high-demand skills for today’s globally minded employers.
You will work Monday through Friday for eight weeks at your host company as an intern for 30-35 hours per week (25-30 for remote option). For the in-person option, you will have the majority of the internship work time take place at the company’s office and/or at a co-working office where the company meets. For the remote option, your work schedule may vary depending on your project and team needs.
This program is run through Puentes Abroad, a third-party provider.
