Exchange Programs

The Office of Study Abroad, part of the Office of the Dean of Students at the Universidad de los Andes, is the office in charge of sponsoring exchanges and receiving documents for applications for exchange and dual degree programs. We invite those interested to explore their webpage.

In this link you will find the specific dates for applying, specific and general partnerships organized by country, the requirements and procedures for application, and the language requirements for each partnership.

Dual Degree Programs

Dual degree programs give selected students the opportunity to receive a degree from a foreign university or business school as well as an undergraduate degree in Business Administration from the Universidad de los Andes.

Currently, the undergraduate business program offers three dual degree partnerships. The requirements for application can be found on the webpage of the Office of Study Abroad.

Transfer Credits

Students interested in learning about the process to apply for transfer credits in the Exchange and Dual Degree programs should follow the procedure here.

This page contains an application where students may apply for credit transfers, apply for approval of future credit transfers, and revise previous applications. In addition, the history of courses transferred in the past by students participating in exchanges and dual degree programs is available. It should be noted that the list of past credit transfers is not the course offerings of the institutions with which the School of Management has exchange/dual degree partnerships; each institution publishes their course offerings at different times and in different spaces. Students interested in participating in an exchange/dual degree should schedule an appointment with one of the undergraduate advisors of the School of Management. This is recommended because credit transfers are valid for only two years, and the School cannot guarantee that a course approved for transfer in the past will be offered at the exchange university nor that it will again be approved for transfer by School professors after two years.
