Belmont in Chile: Entrepreneurship and Economic Development: From Dictatorship to a Thriving Developed Economy

March 2, 2018 - March 11, 2018
Chile is a country on the rise.This phrase may be taken both literally and figuratively, as the Andes mountains to its east push the land up to some of the highest elevations of South America, and as its political life, economy, and culture have improved in ways that may have seemed impossible ten years ago. Indeed, Chile in the 21st Century is one of the single most exciting, and worthwhile destinations in the Americas. Chile is one of South America's most stable and prosperous nations, and the Chilean economy is recognized internationally as one of the most secure, open and competitive in Latin America. Students who participate in this program will learn about the entrepreneurial and business environment. We will study how recent changes to economic policies have supported the emergence of a thriving entrepreneurial and international business ecosystem. We will join students from the Universidad de Santiago and work on a joint case study. We will visit several startup companies as well as some international corporations. The cultural experiences of the trip include hiking, horseback riding, or whitewater rafting in the Andes mountains.
