Brazilian Business & Culture is an intensive Summer Program focused on the Brazilian Economy, Culture and Agribusiness, also including a strong Cultural Management aspect. The subjects are entirely taught in English, but Portuguese Classes are included, so that students can have a broader view of Brazilian Culture, as this is the national language.
The program is structured in classes, seminars, company and cultural visits, workshops and at the end of the Program the students are required to present a project focused on one of the topics presented in the Program.
The Program is hosted by the School of Economics, Business Administration and Accounting at Ribeirão Preto – University of São Paulo, the best Latin American University, in one of the most important cities for agribusiness in Brazil. University of São Paulo is ranked 143 in the QS world rankings.
The Summer School is ideal for 1st and 2nd year students from all faculties but note this is not a credit bearing course.
The cost of the course is USD 1,300 which includes the course, Portuguese lessons, company visits, cultural visits to Sao Paulo and Brasilia and shared accommodation. To help with the costs, we have ten Santander awards of £1000 each for students attending in 2016.
