Our program is designed for university students of Economics, Business Administration and related fields. It provides “hands-on” experience by working in a Commercial Service Office at the U.S. Embassy on market trends and opportunities to help U.S. exporters identify potential Argentine buyers. Students will work on trade events and business issues for U.S. firms and will also assist Argentine companies looking for U.S. suppliers or looking to make an investment in the U.S. They will help organize and prepare for commercial events and trade delegations, among other duties.
