New exchange agreement in South America
A new exchange agreement has been signed by the International Relations Office of HEC Lausanne, University of Lausanne, which will give students the chance to complete part of their course at the Universidad de los Andes School of Management. This first exchange partnership in Colombia is open to the Bachelor in Management students and will give them an excellent opportunity to enhance their CV and explore another culture, in a university with an outstanding reputation for excellence in South America!
In the heart of Bogotá
The Universidad de los Andes campus is located in the historic area of the Colombian capital, which is at the heart of the city’s social and cultural activities. Bogotá is a modern, vibrant, cosmopolitan and prosperous city and the newcomers will quickly sweep aside the stereotypes of conflicts and cartels that are part of the country’s history.
The Universidad de los Andes School of Management holds the prestigious "Triple Crown" (EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB) accreditation, the only school in Colombia and one of just nine to have achieved this in Latin America. It is also a pioneer in teaching about sustainability. It aims for academic excellence with a rigorous focus on developing critical and ethical thinking in order to raise students’ awareness of their social and civic responsibilities, as well as a firm commitment to the society.
Requirements, deadlines and conditions for applications
Most courses at the Universidad de los Andes are taught in Spanish. HEC Lausanne students who are interested in an exchange there must therefore have Spanish to at least level B2.
For further information and to submit an application, please contact the International Relations Office at HEC Lausanne. The deadline for applications is February 20, 2019 and the procedure for applying is outlined on the International Relations Office website.
