Personal recommendation
One important aspect, which we are not accustomed to - at least not from Denmark - is the “controles” that professors at PUC more or less frequently use to test the students and their work - both for undergraduate and MBA-courses! The controles (and maybe a midterm test) are check-ups on whether the students do their homework, and you will often be required to repeat material, lectures and literature (although some controles may be more challenging, e.g. “control de casos”). Don’t worry, the controles are not impossible, and even though the Chilean students can spend days and nights on one single case, the questions asked in the controles are quite fair and accessible if you read the text or case at hand… However, you may to some extent find yourself studying more to memorize and to pass the next control than to actually remember, relate and apply the class material…

It is one of the most prestigious universities in Chile. It's very conservative.

Its a great university, learn as much as you can from the proffesors, and don't be afraid to ask anyone of the university for help, they are very helpful and want to help exchange students.
