CBHP Management in Buenos Aires

The Canfield BHP Management faculty-led program is designed exclusively for CBHP students. Participants will experience colorful, lively Buenos Aires, also known as the the “Paris of Latin America.”  Students will earn MAN 336H honors credit in a course taught by McCombs faculty, and take a second course taught by our partner school faculty at the prestigious Universidad de San Andrés.  

UdeSA is a small private institution with a unique heritage. Named in honor of Saint Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland, the school was founded in 1989 by the Scottish immigrant community in Argentina. The university is known for its high standards of excellence as well as its nationally renowned library - the largest in the country. Participants are housed in brand-new, high rise dormitories, with an incomparable view of the city. Students take courses both at the main San Andrés campus as well as the downtown Buenos Aires location. Past cultural excursions include soccer games, tango performances, a visit to a traditional Argentinian estancia, and a trip to stunning Iguazú Falls.

U.S. citizens traveling to Buenos Aires

U.S. citizens traveling to Buenos Aires will not require a visa to study in Argentina.

 

Other nationalities traveling to Buenos Aires

Depending on your nationality, you may or may not require a tourist visa. To find out whether your nationality requires a visa, students can visit the Argentinean Ministry of Foreign Relations Website and select "Temas Consulares." You can then select your specific country for information on visa requirements. It strongly recommended that you contact the nearest Argentine Consulate to speak with them directly, as visa requirements often change. 

It is the student’s responsibility to research specific requirements for their nationality, and to apply for their visa, if necessary. UdeSA will send those students detailed instructions on how and when to submit their visa paperwork. At the student’s request, BBA International Programs will provide additional program-related documentation to support their visa application, such as an official letter, enrollment status at UT, housing and insurance coverage. Students are also encouraged to request formal documentation of student enrollment status from the UT Registrar's Office and are required to notify Texas Global of their travel plans.
