Adolfo Ibáñez University


Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (UAI) is a private, nonprofit institution legally incorporated in 1988. It was formed out of the Escuela de Negocios de Valparaíso (Valparaiso Business School) created in 1953 by the Adolfo Ibáñez Foundation, legacy of the businessman and public figure, Mr. Adolfo Ibáñez Boggiano.


In 2016, a teacher support and mentoring agreement was signed with Columbia University, an institution that has been applying this program since 1919 alongside other prestigious universities around the world, such as Harvard and Stanford, to name a few.


Research at the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez represents a central core of the institution.  Through the investigatory work developed at the UAI, our university seeks to contribute to expanding the frontiers of knowledge in diverse areas at the national and international levels.
