Since its inauguration in March 2012, the Santiago Center has organized over 150 programs, mainly in Santiago, although it is also in the process of trying to decentralize its operations by holding public events in the country’s regions. Its activities have ranged from brown bag conversations with visiting faculty members to film festivals and from large conferences to information sessions about the programs and degrees offered by Columbia University. The Center has also organized programs on Campus, including visits by local government officials and scholars from Chilean universities.
In 2018, the Santiago Center started offered an executive education course for the first time in partnership with Columbia Business School Executive Education. The one-day event, held in March, brought David Rogers, a globally recognized leader in digital business strategy and the bestselling author of The Digital Transformation Playbook: Rethink Your Business for the Digital Age, to Chile to conduct an extremely successful workshop targeting local executives.
