MBA students from the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez in Chile have concluded their week-long study visit to LSE with a reception at the Chilean Ambassador’s residence. The Ambassador, Mr Tomás Müller, welcomed the 41 students and Professor Stuart Corbridge, LSE’s Provost, presented them with their certificates.
Professor Corbridge, looking at the commonalities between UAI and LSE, pointed out that UAI’s motto, the truth sets us free, chimes with LSE’s, to understand the causes of things. ‘The essence of university life is to try and understand the causes of things, to make sure it sets us free so that we can live fulfilling lives. I think there’s a lot in common between the two institutions, both with a strong focus on management and economics and political science.’
‘Building relationships with Latin America is a top strategic goal for LSE. We hope that many more students from Latin America will come to LSE and we expect in that process to learn as much from you as we hope you’ve learnt from us.’
LSE Enterprise’s custom programme on Finance and Global Economy was taught by six LSE academics as well as external experts such as Baroness Barker. It covered topics such as emerging markets, communicating with investors, financial regulation and strategies for world trade.
