Doing Business in Brazil

The São Paulo Global Center supports the Notre Dame International summer undergraduate program “Doing Business in Brazil,” in partnership with Fundação Getulio Vargas.

The Doing Business in Brazil (DBB) program provides an overview of political, economic, and social aspects of working in Brazil to students who are interested in Brazilian markets. DBB blends the academic and practical dimensions of business with cultural activities in order to give students an immersion into the Brazilian culture and way of doing business. DDB runs for three weeks and includes a series of presentations by FGV-EAESP faculty members and guest speakers, a city tour of São Paulo with a bilingual guide, visits to Brazilian companies that allow participants to observe local business operations in greater depth, lectures by executives, and cultural activities.
