UGA Exchange-Terry-University of Chile

The Universidad de Chile is one of only 10 Latin American universities ranked among the world’s top 500. It has been at the forefront of Chilean history, politics, economics, social and cultural affairs since its foundation in 1842.  The Faculty of Economics and Business – or Facultad de Economía y Negocios (FEN) – is one of Latin America’s leading Business Schools. FEN offers a first-class, internationally competitive education in Business Administration, Economics, Information Systems & Management Control, and Auditing. About 2,500 students are registered in FEN’s undergraduate programs and 1,500 at the graduate level. FEN offers international exchange students the opportunity to study in Spanish and/or English. 

Thanks to our active Study Abroad program, we receive more than 150 international students annually at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. We aspire to increase FEN’s international reputation as a culturally diverse, outward-looking, pluralistic Business School.

Program Location

Santiago is cultured, quirky and ambitious. Beyond the conservative conformity of Santiago Centro, and the glass towers of the Las Condes financial district, there are thriving culinary and artistic hot spots all around the FEN campus near Bellavista and Providencia. There’s a huge range of activities--with Andes mountains and Pacific ocean easily accessible in day trips.

Accommodation Statement 

UGA education abroad programs strive to provide reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities.  Areas of disability include, but are not limited to visual, hearing, learning, psychological, medical, and mobility impairments. If you receive disability-related accommodations at UGA or at your home university, or if you anticipate needing accommodations at your overseas site, you will arrange for them with your study abroad program director and the staff in the Disability Resource Center.  Examples of accommodations include note taking assistance, extended test time, a quiet testing location, alternative text/media, and accessible housing. Please provide information about your accommodation needs at least 4 weeks prior to departure in order to allow time to arrange for accommodations. Students are asked to disclose disability-related needs prior to the start of the program to help ensure that there are no delays in accommodations and that the student can enjoy the full study abroad experience.

Program Reviews:
Fall 2019 Participant
English speaking classes are meant for exchange students and you should expect a significantly lighter workload in them compared to the Spanish-speaking ones. Classes will be very different than UGA, they are definitely not a joke but vary very much on a class by class basis.

Testimonial:
Testimonial:
Be open and optimistic! Not in just a cliche open-mindedness kind of sense but in a vulnerable and loving sense. You will make the most friends that way and have the most meaningful experiences. Be sure to slow down occasionally and take time for yourself otherwise, get out there and use up every second, even if your feet hurt, keep going. Be highly intentional in the things you do and take, or not, now is the time to make mistakes, go down the wrong path, learn a lesson or two, but being intentional can really enhance an experience. Leave your expectations at home and just say yes.
