BUSINESS IN BRAZIL
10-Day Sample Immersion Program in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro
Our Business & Economics program model aims to provide participants with an efficient panorama of the Brazilian market. To this end, we developed an itinerary that combines academic activities with social, cultural and practical exercises; so each participant will have the chance to transform the theoretical and abstract into experimental learning -- where Brazil becomes your classroom.
The program is developed in two of the most iconic cities: São Paulo - the country’s economic capital and educational center - and Rio de Janeiro - Brazil's postcard city and front door for millions of tourists annually. Participants will have the opportunity to meet Brazilian professors, entrepreneurs, business leaders and have first-hand contact with innovative ideas and daily challenges.
