1. GENERAL DESCRIPTION - Interdipartimental programme 

CLABE Buenos Aires (CLABE B.A.) is an international bachelor degree programme in Business and Economics that follows the pattern of the "ordinary" CLABE degree. They both present the same scheme of subjects. Despite that, they are completely standing-alone between each other and the official calls of admission are separated and different. It means that you can be a Clabe Bologna track student or alternatively you can be a Clabe BA student.

The main difference between the two degree courses is that the Clabe BA students are going to attend their first year classes in the UniBo campus in Buenos Aires while the Clabe students  in the campus of Bologna. The first year in Buenos Aires will be an intensive year: it will start in January (three months later with respect to the regular courses in Italy) but it will still include all the subjects of the entire first year. At the end of the Buenos Aires period, beginning of September, students will move to Italy and will be able to go on with their second year of Bachelor's Degree in Business and Economics (held in the Bologna center, in English language). The third year of Clabe BA can be followed in Bologna or Buenos Aires (or in other universities with the Erasmus or Overseas programs).

Even if the Clabe BA is an international bachelor's degree course, it follows the standard European system of university studies, based on ECTS Credits.

Why interdipartimental?

A similar programme will allow students to enroll in the School of Political Science and follow a first year in Buenos Aires and then proceed with the second and third year in Italy with the Bachelor's Degree in Political, Social and International Sciences (Corso di Laurea in Scienze Politiche, Sociali e Internazionali; held at the Bologna center; in Italian language) or the Bachelor's Degree in International and Diplomatic Sciences (Corso di Laurea in Scienze Internazionali e Diplomatiche; held at the Forlì center; in Italian language).

The courses of the first year are in fact valid for all the three degree courses, so for a purpose of administative efficiency, we form one class including students of the three degree courses. From the second year onwards students will be in different classes (in Italy).
