What options do we offer?


Global Internships

This option is a full time 3 or 6-month internship, where the student will have to carry out a working schedule, and therefore, will not be able to enroll in courses at UDD.


Co-Education Internships

This programme is a part-time internship, lasting one semester (approximately five months). The students will be able to work as interns in successful Chilean entrepreneurship and/or start-ups. Additionally, this gives the student the possibility to enroll in courses at UDD according to his/her area of interest.

*This option is open for students from all the fields of study.


Co-Education Internships – Business School 

The student will be able to do a part-time internship during the mornings, from Tuesday to Friday (5 hours a day). During the afternoon, the student can attend classes, being able to enroll in a maximum of three courses along with the internship. This programme offers tutorials with university professors, who will accompany and evaluate the student during the process, trough five reports and a final oral presentation. 

*This programme is only offered by the School of Business and Economics.
