A program in Argentina with San Andrés, in addition to guaranteeing top notch academics and student and logistical support, has many advantages.
At Universidad de San Andrés we have ran up to four short-term programs a year for which we provide transportation, housing, cultural activities and 24/7 support. Often we provided a large portion of the academic component as well.
Some of the programs have been:
Four week program in 2016 with a marketing course taught by a NCSU professor and some classes taught by a UdeSA professor (all in English) for 26 students. The program included a trip to Mendoza. Right now we are developing a new program for 2017 with another course and more students. Students and faculty stay at apartments in an aparthotel centrally located.
2016 was the second year we ran a program with Tulane. They bring two professors (who are also directors of the program) who teach a culture course in Spanish. At the same time, an UdeSA professor teaches another course that is closely related to the excursions and visits included in the program. Students stay with Argentinian families.
Since 2011 we have been executing annually a six-week customized program on Spanish Language and Argentine Culture that includes courses taught by two KU professors and Spanish courses taught by our Spanish professors. Students stay with Argentinean families.
“Working with San Andrés was an excellent experience. The coordinators and professors were available 24 hrs a day, every day of the week. They went above and beyond the call of duty to provide our students with all the academic and moral support they needed.”

Our relationship with McCombs started with our first program in 2013 and has continued ever since. Currently the program consists of two programs: one for undergraduate and another for graduates students, each taught by a McCombs professor. UdeSA provides one professor for each course. McCombs also brings two liaisons that stay with the students in the same apartments. This year we had 45 students between the two programs.
