Founded in 1934, the School of Economics and Business of the University of Chile (FEN UCHILE) is the oldest and most prestigious in the country. It has contributed to the training of professionals in the fields of economics, management, business, management control, information systems and auditing, which have contributed to our progress, to the discussion of the country's issues and to the creation of new knowledge. With the most important Alumni Network in the country, comprised of more than 15,000 professionals which make up FEN Alumni, our alumni are recognized for their invaluable contribution to the nation both in the public and private sectors and have contributed to the economic development and welfare of our citizens.
Our mission is "to develop and train competent leaders with solid knowledge and skills in Business and Economics through its undergraduate, graduate, and executive development programs, who are capable of excelling in Chile and abroad; and to build and generate relevant new knowledge in the fields of Business and Economics that contributes to the development and competitiveness of the country and the Latin American region within an environment of academic rigor, excellence, and intellectual diversity. We aim to develop influential players in the national and regional business and economics communities who are able to provide and implement new, practical, and useful ideas for their countries".
Excellence, as one of our values, is present across teaching, research and outreach, and in our students, professors, collaboration staff, and processes. The School promotes a broad view of the world which has been built through the great diversity, heterogeneity, places of origin and cultures of both its academics and its students. With the objective of promoting diversity in its broadest context, the School has encouraged, for example, special enrollment mechanisms which assure the plurality of our students and also has encouraged professionals from different disciplinary areas to attain post-graduate studies.
