CIEE São Paulo Hosts Northeastern University Business Students

This July, 10 students from Northeastern University arrived in São Paulo to learn how to do business in emerging markets as part of the Doing Business in Brazil course at the top business school in Brazil, Fundação Getúlio Vargas.

As part of their time in São Paulo, the students were treated to a true Brazilian cultural experience with the help of resident staff from the CIEE Study Center. Students were introduced to all the economic capital of Brazil has to offer during a city tour, trips to local museums and historical sites, and explorations of local neighborhoods. Some of the highlights: savoring traditional Brazilian flavors at a few of the more than 12,000 restaurants that dot the cityscape, exploring the Mercado Municipal, or city central market, built in 1933, and taking in a Corinthians soccer game at Pacaembu Stadium.
