The McGill Summer School Abroad Program in São Paulo & Rio de Janeiro, Brazil offers MBA and undergraduate students the unique opportunity to earn credits from McGill University while experiencing life and learning about business in Latin America. The courses offered relate international business concepts directly to the Brazilian context and to the more general Latin American business environment. The formal program will include regular lectures, guest speakers, and visits to businesses in Montréal, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
Beyond the formal program, you will learn informally by spending four weeks working and living with Brazilian students and professors. By the end of the program, you will have made many new friends and you will have lived and worked in an exciting foreign environment.
Your four-week schedule will allow you to earn credit in two courses in a varied international environment and to share your culture with Brazilian students while experiencing their culture in return. The program provides ample time to get the most out of your time abroad. Students are also encouraged to stay on in Latin America after the formal program ends to visit other cities or countries.
