Professor Adriana Hofer from the Walton College invites you to an informational meeting on this summer’s business study trip to Brazil.  The study abroad in Brazil course objective is that upon completion students will be informed and conversant on the key issues related to the socio-economic, business, and cultural environments in Brazil.  Instruction is in English and will include both classroom and extramural activities. The course will be guided by Professor Hofer, with guest lecturers from the business, academic, and political communities.  The program also emphasizes interaction with local students and faculty and networking opportunities with the academic and business communities.  The program includes three 3-hour preparatory courses at WCOB giving students a background in Brazil’s current business, political, and cultural environment as well as some basic communication in Portuguese. The course is targeted to both graduate and undergraduate students.  Participants will stay in suitable hotels in Rio de Janiero and Recife.  Field trips will include visits to business enterprises, cultural attractions, and an excursion to Recife.  Tentative dates for summer 2014 are May 11-June 1, 2014.
