Program Overview

Program Description:
Georgia State offers many summer and maymester programs led and taught by Georgia State professors. These programs tend to be focused on a particular topic or theme and range from 10 to 20 participants, though some are larger. Students participate in lectures, site visits, excursions, and tours as part of the program. These programs usually last between two and six weeks. Students find these programs a great way to really get to know their professors and other GSU students while earning GSU credits and grades. Students do not have to study on a program related to their major, but they certainly can. Financial aid and scholarships are available.

The BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, China) have received a lot of attention. Consider having your look at the BRICs start with Brazil. This program has been designed to provide students with an understanding of the dynamics that affect doing business in or with an emerging economy. Building on a base of historical factors, recent internal reforms and the international opening of the Brazilian economy will be examined. The first phase of this course (conducted in Atlanta during the summer term, June – July) will address the background of Latin American economic development strategies and the case of Brazil utilizing lectures, videos, and discussion in class. Business leaders who deal with Brazil will complement the lectures and videos. The second phase (August 1- August 15) will serve as a capstone. This will involve a trip to the cities of Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, and Recife in Brazil. The former capital of Brazil, Rio de Janeiro is clearly one of the most beautiful and famous cities of the world as well as being the gateway to the largest country in Latin America. Once the colonial capital, Salvador is major city with extensive cultural heritage. Recife, the hub of the Northeast, is a fast growing center of industry, distribution, and tourism. The overseas segment will emphasize company visits supplemented by sessions at Brazilian government ministries and international organizations. The visits will be complemented by presentations of local experts and professors at host institutions. Lectures and other activities will be conducted in English. Portuguese language capability is not required.

Setting Description:
Participants will stay in business hotels (double occupancy) in Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, and Recife.
