What are university’s prospects in Chile
(External Situation- Opportunities & threats)?

environment- Special analysis (see Appendix – A)

last 20 years Chilean higher education has changed drastically, experiencing a
boom in enrolments. In 2011, seven out of ten students were the first
generation from their family accessing university. From 1990 to 2011 the gross
higher education enrolment ratio increased from 14 percent to over 50 percent.
Total enrolments have increased from about 660,000 in 2005 to almost 1.2
million today. (


is seen in the special analysis the opportunities we get in the Chile are more
for students who are more interested in learning English language and if HBS
wants to enter Chilean market, the approach should be for the students who
wants to learn for international levels, as being an international university. The
courses should contain contents that will help the students in pertaining every
aspect of doing business in maybe every part of the world. Learning English language
better can also be their approach when they look forward to study in a foreign
university, so providing them that should be at focus too.

we look for threats in Chile, we will look forward to very high risks as Chile
is full of good universities in some of which students can study for free of
cost as the government there it is bearing the cost after the students’ protested
for it. Also, the threat that a new university might enter into the same market
with the objective of free education, this might result in higher competitions

Where do we want to be?

Hertfordshire Business School has come
so far to establish its name throughout the country and many parts of the world
that it doesn’t want to stop there. Some part of the world is still left to
stretch its legs to. Amongst them is country Chile which has been doing great
in terms of business in which education system is also being stressed upon in
terms of encouragement. And that is why, HBS is looking forward to step into
Chile education industry.

Plan to get to the objective

get to the objectives one has to plan marketing. Over the past 60 years,
marketing has moved from being product-centric to being consumer-centric. Today
marketing is seen as transforming once again in response to the new dynamics in
the environment. It is seen that the companies expanding their focus from
products to consumers to humankind issues. Marketing 3.0 is the stage when
companies shift from consumer-centricity to human-centricity and where
profitability is balanced with corporate responsibility (Philip Kotler, 2010).


Business School will give an opportunity to all undergraduate and postgraduate
students to choose amongst several undergraduate and postgraduate courses
mentioned above. It wants to give every deserving student an equal opportunity
to study in United Kingdom. HBS is also providing the Chilean students a chance
to come and explore the different economic and cultural diversity by giving
them visa to United Kingdom with providing them a safer accommodation as well
as learning environment. For admissions HBS has to set some eligibility
criteria i.e. if a student wants to study in United Kingdom then he or she has
to give IELTS or TOEFLE and has to obtain certain marks (which can be lower
than usual as it depends upon country as Chileans don’t have English as a
compulsory language subject).
