This 3-credit course will explore business in Brazil from an economic and financial standpoint. Students will compare business in Brazil to business in the U.S. primarily through research on economic and financial factors. Students will meet with top government officials, senior executives and industry experts during visits to a variety of businesses – in differing industries, U.S. companies doing business in Brazil, local and global Brazilian companies and financial institutions. These visits will provide students with a better understanding of market entry strategies, government procedures, business practices and specific business opportunities in Brazil, skills which are transferable to doing business in a variety of locations around the world. Substantive presentations in Brazil would give students an understanding of differing views on topics such as international financial arrangements, trade policies, taxation and government spending policies, government subsidies, and demographic and labor market issues including immigration.
Experiencing the complexity of the culture and appreciating the beauty of the natural countryside is an integral part of having a understanding Brazil, the largest and most populous country in South America. To enhance the immersion experience, there is a planned visit to Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio, one of the 7 new wonders of the world and a tour of Sao Paolo, among other experiential opportunities.
Course is open to freshmen through seniors and all majors are welcome.
