Chile Summer Study ProgramExperience vibrant Latin American culture while learning about the political and economic business dynamics in Chile and Latin America. This unique program has been specially designed for Monash Business students and delivered in English by the prestigious University of Chile; the oldest and largest university in the country.

Chile is a beautiful and diverse travel destination and its capital, Santiago, is a cosmopolitan city located amidst the spectacular Andes mountain range.

In this stimulating two week program, you will experience and learn about the political, economic and business dynamics of doing business in Latin America – a fascinating region in transition that in the last two decades has embraced democracy, emerged as an economic powerhouse and become increasingly influential in global affairs. The region’s rise has implications for Australia and the broader Asia-Pacific economic community.

As an important player in the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and a significant commercial partner for Australia, Chile offers a great case study of the region in transition.
