Customize Your Program
Your program is one-of-a-kind. Your itinerary should be too. We craft each program with a thematic approach, developing a day-by-day schedule that matches your curriculum, your goals, and your needs.
How it works
You’ll work directly with your own Program Development manager to craft your itinerary from the beginning. He or she is an extension of your university team, consulting with our ground team and our curriculum specialists to give your students an experience that’s uniquely yours. Once we settle on a basic itinerary, you’ll get your own account manager who will work to make sure your program’s goals are met, year after year after year.
Wes Young, Director of Operations—South America, lives and works in Latin America and helps to forge authentic connections for groups traveling in the region. His connections pave the way for a seamless travel experience, as well as new opportunities for groups to meet and learn from locals engaged in their field.

Topics to Explore
In Argentina, you might explore some of the following topics:
This quintessentially Argentine dance originated in the neighborhoods of Buenos Aires, eventually spreading across the world to become one of the most popular forms of the 19th century. Study the history of tango as it relates to the culture of Argentina, the themes of the dance itself, and the technique of the art form.
Though still a relatively young industry in Argentina, wine making has been going on for decades in the wine regions of Argentina. Learn about the science of high altitude planting, the history of Spanish colonization as it relates to wine, or, of course, taste your way through the beautiful Mendoza region.
A Business Contrast
In the beginning of the 20th century, Argentina was the 7th wealthiest developed nation in the world. Today, it is on an economic roller coaster, flirting with default. Compare Argentina to its neighbors, Chile, Uruguay, or Brazil, as you study the emerging economies of Latin America.
The region of Patagonia, straddling Argentina and Chile, draws both scientists and—increasingly—nature enthusiasts and adventurers who enjoy the unique collection of flora and fauna and tremendous topography in the country. Hike snow-capped mountains, visit waterfalls, glittering lakes, and especially the active Perito Moreno Glacier in Los Glacieres National Park, as you discuss the life cycles that contribute to the incredible view.
Argentina surged onto the world stage in the beginning of the 20th century as the 7th wealthiest developed nation in the world, the product of a massive wave of immigration from Europe (and its own rich natural resources). Today, students of history, politics, and business study Argentina’s tumultuous political and economic history, including the new scandals, defaults, and economic challenges that are holding the nation back in the global economy. Buenos Aires is the most visited city in South America for good reason; it is full of tango, theater, architecture, and parrillas serving up Argentina’s excellent beef. Outside Buenos Aires, one can go in any direction and find so much to see. Iguazu National Park is a tropical waterfall heaven, while Bariloche is a destination for skiing and hiking in Patagonia to the south. In Mendoza, climb the Andes Mountains and enjoy Argentina’s emerging wine culture, or go to Salta to visit Incan and colonial sites linked to the Spanish history of the region.
