Educational model

In line with the educational model of the Adolfo Ibáñez University, the UAI Business School incorporates a Liberal Arts program inspired by the best universities in the world. This model seeks to encourage students to reflect on the most common issues of humanity and of life together, which allows not only to train in a profession, but to develop a more sophisticated, critical and multidisciplinary thinking.

The above is translated into the Core Curriculum, a set of 8 courses inspired by the 100-year experience of Columbia University, where students read, analyze and discuss classic texts of philosophy, politics, literature and science.

Specifically, in the case of the Business School, all the programs of the entity seek, through the different curricular meshes, to contribute to the formation of the following skills:

  • Leadership.
  • Critical thinking.
  • Effective communication.
  • Ethical conduct

In the specific case of the career of Commercial Engineering, it bases its learning on two pillars, which translate into academic excellence and methodologies that encourage "Learning by Doing", bringing students closer to the business world early and taking them beyond the pure acquisition of knowledge, which allows them to enter the world of business with advantage.

Thus, the teaching methodology focuses on the student, changing the paradigm of the teacher who transmits knowledge to one where the students are managers of their own learning.

It is for this reason that the educational model includes the methodology of workshops, where projects are carried out that allow interaction with the real world of business. In addition, general training is combined with two options of degree: Business Administration and Economics, and a Master's program at the end of the career.

The integration of these elements allows to train professionals capable of adapting and being successful in an increasingly dynamic environment. In this way, the commercial engineers of the Adolfo Ibáñez University are "trained to solve problems that do not exist yet".114552_CAMPUSDESDEARRIBA.jpg
