Built on the land of two former estates, the city of Viña del Mar began in the late 1800s and has grown to become a popular destination for Chileans, Argentines and other tourists from around the world. Often called the “Garden City”, it was once known primarily for its beautiful beaches. Viña del Mar is also known as a university town. It is a safe and relaxed city where visiting students can study Chilean language and culture.
The Business and Latin American Studies in English program at the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez is open to students at all Spanish levels. Students have the opportunity to complete Spanish language courses along with business, Chilean culture, and Latin American studies courses in English or Spanish. Students with an advanced level of Spanish are welcome to select integrated courses with Chilean students from the standard university course offerings. Courses are available in business administration, engineering, journalism and psychology, as well as other areas of liberal arts and the social sciences. Students who elect to complete courses with Chilean students will need to stay several extra weeks in Chile due to a more extensive exam period and will be assessed an additional fee for extending their housing. Business courses at UAI are AACSB accredited. During the orientation period on-site, all students complete a language placement test to determine their Spanish level.
