Buenos Aires, one of the largest cities in South America and the center for business, government and the non-profit sector, is an ideal location to learn about international relations. Internship activities range from assisting with policy research to developing projects and presentations and networking with local and international agencies.
Explore Buenos Aires and go tango in La Boca or indulge in warm empanadas at a neighborhood panadería. For a breath of fresh air, visit the Rose Garden in Palermo, join a boat tour on the Tigre or spend an afternoon at an estancia. With delicious food and a vibrant cultural scene, you’ll understand why Buenos Aires is called the “Paris of South America”!
