This course aims to develop the understanding of the Brazilian Business scenario, its culture, political structure, agents and business regulation through a comparative and cross cultural approach. Why study International Management and Business in Brazil? Living and working in a globalized society requires that every student be aware of the main issues taking place in the international business scenario and the world economy today. As part of the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), Brazil is an important player in the Latin America and in the world´s economy and politics. Discussing, searching and studying Brazil brings to the student a useful perception of the world’s diversity in global business management.
