AT A GLANCE/LOCATION
La Universidad de Chile, Facultad de EconomÍa y Negocios (FEN), is one of just ten Latin American universities ranked among the world’s top 500. The university is famous for their research and the high caliber of their faculty. The university hosts over 400 international students every year and has over 40,000 undergraduate students.
Santiago is the capital of Chile and its largest city, with just over 5 million residents. As a cultural and political center situated in the beautiful Andes Mountains, Santiago is an important city in South America with interesting history and cultural events. The country of Chile has incredible diversity, with over 2,000 miles of coastal territory. Santiago's cityscape is shaped by several stand-alone hills and the fast-flowing Mapocho River and lined by parks such as Parque Forestal. The Andes Mountains can be seen from most points in the city. The city outskirts are surrounded by vineyards and Santiago is within a few hours of both the mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
