Adolfo Ibáñez University, School of Business
In 1953, under the initiative of one of the most outstanding businessmen of the period, Adolfo Ibáñez Boggiano, the Valparaiso Business School was founded, the first Business School in Latin America. This was created with the idea of training true businessmen with a solid knowledge of administration and a profound humanistic formation. This school later became the Adolfo Ibáñez University.
Adolfo Ibáñez School of Business was the first Latin American Business School which was founded in Chile, the most stable and successful country of the region.
From its beginnings, the Business School has trained generations of students, characterized by their business spirit and leadership abilities, demonstrated by the leadership positions held within the business world.
More than 6,000 alumni from postgraduated programs testify the consistency and prestige of the Business School both in Chile and abroad. This, added to the more than 4,000 executives who attend our seminars and diplomas every year, explains the protagonism of the Adolfo Ibáñez University in the formation of Latin American leaders.
In 2006 was founded The Adolfo Ibáñez School of Management with its headquarters in Miami, the first foreign Business School with authorization to grant US academic qualifications; this is where the top leaders of our continent are trained.
