Program Description:
CIEE Summer Business + Culture Program in Sao Paulo, Brazil

Millions of Americans stop what they’re doing to watch the Super Bowl. For Brazilians, it’s Carnival – which pumps one billion dollars into the economy annually. In Brazil’s business and economic center, explore the impact of this dazzling event and examine the economic challenges facing this rapidly developing country. CIEE’s new Business and Culture Short-Term Program is designed to take advantage of the existing and well-established (since 1989) CIEE Study Center infrastructure in São Paulo in addition to its strong partnerships with local institutions. You’ll also take part in a specialized language learning program, take classes from Brazilian and international faculty, and visit local and international companies – all to prepare you for the world of globalized business.

Study abroad in São Paulo and you'll:logo
  • Learn first-hand about Latin American business issues and Brazil’s role in the global economy, and to study in the region’s largest economy
  • Visit companies and the main cultural sites in the city to complement the area studies course
  • Be exposed to volunteer community service opportunities through CIEE co-curricular activities and programs
