Is This Program for Me?
Are you . . .
  • seeking to advance commerce or a cause in Latin America?
  • looking to effect change in the region?
  • interested in operating in international markets, overcoming the complexities of differing political and societal environments?
  • curious about what advocacy tools really influence governments, parliaments, politicians, and legislators -- in the U.S. and around world?
If so, we invite you to join us.

Why Mexico City?
During our travel period in Mexico, students will explore the challenges of advocacy and communications throughout the region, which has increasing economic and geopolitical significance. Students will be exposed to the governance structures, the power holders and decision makers, and best practices in advocacy in areas including Mexico, Central America, and the greater Latin American region.
