Buen Vecino Internship Program (BVIP)


For eight weeks every summer, students from the U.S. and Mexico travel to their neighboring countries to have an opportunity to intern in companies related to their majors. The program helps the participants, whether they are corporate executives or university students, discuss and share ideas and knowledge on the ways to do business and international commerce between the United States and Mexico.


The Goals of the BVIP are:


To provide interaction between citizens of Mexico and the United States in various settings.


To foster future mutually beneficial commercial relations between the two countries.


To provide a forum for the exchange of ideas regarding corporate environment, communications styles, culture, and international relations.


Contribute to the development of future leaders in the areas of trade and commerce.
