Mendoza, Argentina

Each year, 10-15 M.S. in MIT students travel to Andes wine country in Mendoza, Argentina, for a global project retrospective experience. Students have the unique opportunity to develop cross-cultural competencies as they work with local Argentinian companies on a historical reconstruction on a recent IT project. In the past, students have collaborated with businesses that include wineries, ad agencies, and the department of transportation.
