Smith Experience Abroad:
Doing Business in Brazil: Emerging Global Companies
Spring term one-credit BUSI788B and Spring term two-credit
Emerging markets have become one of the main drivers for global growth in the
past few years. After two decades of economic turbulence (1980's and 1990's), Brazil
certainly seems to be on the right path for sustained growth. This course will bring
a comprehensive view of the challenges and opportunities related to doing business
in and from Brazil. We will focus both on multinational companies operating in Brazil
and local companies at different stages of globalization.
The course comprises lectures, company visits and an opportunity to work directly
with a company on a critical issue. Through direct contact with executives and academics
working in the country, students will obtain hands-on knowledge of Brazil and expand
their business network.
