The CAI Program


Our program facilitates the connection between students studying in top universities in Singapore and Chilean companies, so they can experiment a professional experience in a offshore company. Through the program, students will gain professional experience working in an offshore company. As the ASEAN local associate, you will get to provide the receiving companies with an outward view about their businesses, and advise them on how to access and operate within the ASEAN market.

The participating companies belong to a variety of areas, covering different business. These include: 

  • Fintech

  • Import/Exports

  • Investment

  • Construction

  • Manufacturing

  • Others

As the official and business language in Chile is Spanish, all companies will provide an English speaking tutor who will be in charge of the integration of the intern to the company and his tasks in the project.
