Term Application


The ideal applicant shows a strong interest in investigating the diversity and richness of Latin American cultures, societies, economic and political landscapes, in understanding the challenges and opportunities of emerging markets and in developing knowledge about north-south and south-south relations.

Application Process

The HSG Latam Term takes place during the Spring Semester, typically attracting students who are in their 5th or 6th semester of studies at the HSG. There are two options to select the HSG Latam Term in the application process.

HSG Latam Term as first Exchange Option

You may apply to the HSG Latam Term by following the procedure indicated by the Mobility Online Portal, selecting “HSG Latam Term” as one of your seven preferences of partner university choices. The application deadline falls in January of each year. This means that you will be applying one year prior to your exchange semester, in other words: your 3rd semester. The selection process and notification of candidates happen in February, which gives you ample time to prepare for your trip, learn about the language and the culture, and carefully select your learning opportunities.

HSG Latam Term as Second Exchange Option

The HSG Latam Term also opens to second exchange semester applicants. We encourage students, who have been previously chosen for the Asia Term or another exchange semester at a partner university to add on their experiences abroad by combining it with the Latam Term in Spring. More information about the application process, including the specific requirements and procedures for the second exchange, can be found on the webpage of the HSG Student Mobility Office.
