Chile UC with hands
Santiago (5,500,000) is a city of stark contrasts. On the one hand, it is a city with a gleaming new international airport, skyscrapers hosting telecommunications and financial services firms, and streets jammed with latest model cars and people on cell phones. On the other hand, the city also has heavy motor vehicle traffic, pockets of extreme poverty and, because of the surrounding mountains and the heavy traffic, pollution in the winter months. The city is the political and economic capital of Chile. Santiago provides easy access to the breath-taking beauty of the Andes and the Pacific coast.

Universidad del Desarrollo (UDD) is our academic partner for this program. UDD is a private university educating 13,500 undergraduate and 2,500 graduate students. UDD knows that successful professionals are those who respond to the constant changes and challenges that occur in the real world.  For this reason, UDD puts special emphasis on the internationalization of its students and professors.
