We are excited to welcome Ariel Yablon back to IES Abroad as the new Center Director of IES Abroad Buenos Aires. Ariel returns to IES Abroad Buenos Aires having previously served there as the Academic Dean and Associate Director from 2008 to 2012, where his thorough curricular review led to the implementation of innovative courses and programs still in place today.    

Ariel’s rich background in international education includes more than 20 years of teaching experience at local, regional and international institutions. He has also served as Academic Dean of the Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales (FLASCO) Buenos Aires, as Center Director at CEA Buenos Aires, and in other areas of academic administration and international education.

During Ariel’s previous tenure with IES Abroad Buenos Aires, he worked closely with his faculty to revise existing courses, fostering active learning and in-depth experiential components. 

Ariel holds a Ph.D. in Latin American History from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where his thesis focused on the politics of corruption and patronage in Buenos Aires, Argentina, at the turn of the nineteenth century. He has received grants to support his research from the Social Sciences Research Council, the Tinker Foundation, and the Newberry Library, and has published articles in prestigious academic journals such as the Journal of Latin American Studies. As a content writer, Ariel has worked on two major documentary series for the Argentine Public Television channel and The History Channel. 

We look forward to the ways in which Ariel’s impressive expertise will support and enrich the study abroad experience for our students at IES Abroad Buenos Aires. Join us in congratulating Ariel on his new role!
