FH Upper Austria enhances commitment with Chile

Within the framework of a South-America Tour under the leadership of Dr. Gerald Reisinger, a delegation from the FH Upper Austria visited partner universities in Argentina and Chile and, among others, the Andres Bello University in Santiago de Chile. The University Andres Bello is a modern private university with app. 40.000 students at various locations in Chile, such as the capital Santiago de Chile, Valparaiso and Concepcion.

For the School of Management in Steyr the faculty Economía y Negocios is of main interest. Apart from the student exchange, which has already started, both schools want to intensify their cooperation and are working on a double degree programme.

Santiago de Chile is a clean and safe city with a high standard of living and is situated on the western edge of the Andes. Chile´s economy is best known for exporting raw materials (mainly copper) as well as fruits and wine. Some Upper Austrian companies have branches and offices in Chile.
