Argentina and Chile
FIN 360 and FIN 680V
The International Finance Field Study to Argentina and Chile traveled with 32 students (14 undergraduate and 18 graduate students) from January 9 to January 19, 2013. Led by Dr. Iuliana Ismailescu and Dr. Michael Szenberg, the group visited Buenos Aires, Argentina and Santiago, Chile. The primary objective of this course was to introduce students to the economies of both countries. The course also emphasized the lessons that developed economies can learn from the Argentine crisis of early 2000s, and the differences between the Argentine and Chilean economic focus and development paths. Business visits included Cargill SACI, Buenos Aires Stock Exchange, Globant, Banco Central de Chile, Flexco, AmCham Chile and Empresas Copec. The group also participated in a panel discussion in Santiago concerning the history and future outlook of the Chilean economy.
Three Lubin students were each awarded $1,500 Figueroa Family Scholarships, and nine Lubin students were each awarded $2,000 Celentano Scholarships for a total of $22,500 in funds awarded for this field study.
