Don't miss out on this great opportunity to participate in a scholarship program offered by IBS Americas in partnership with UNIP - Universidade Paulista, in São Paulo, Brazil. UNIP is a private university interested in receiving students from all over the world, conveniently located near Paulista Avenue, one of the safest areas of the city, heart of the Latin America financial district and home of the international community in São Paulo.

Aware of the difficulties young professionals and students face when traveling abroad to study, our International Business School – IBS Americas – offers scholarships covering up to 70% of the tuition fees together with a broad travel preparation.

There has never been a better time to visit Brazil, the world’s fifth-largest country - and not just because the World Cup was held there last year and Brazil will host Summer Olympics in 2016. Thanks to the growing strength of the economy, and the improved infrastructure required for the events, the country is safer and easier to travel around than ever before.

However, keep in mind the U.S. dollar (USD) is at its strongest level in years and now 35% stronger against the Brazilian currency (Real) than one year ago. Our intensive program is integrally taught in English, covering topics such as:

Agribusiness in Brazil:

•    Global context of Agribusiness;

•    Innovation, Technology & Sustainability;

•   Challenges and Opportunities in Agribusiness .

Together with renowned guest speakers on the topic and customized company and farmland visits, students will get an introduction and basic knowledge of how to do agribusiness in Brazil and other emerging markets. Programs are offered 3 times a year, as follows:

January: 2 weeks

July or August: 3 weeks

Students interested in to transferring credits will be evaluated final project presentation, final exam, class participation and class attendance. The final grade and the attendance rate will be available on the Transcripts Report.

This is a great opportunity to know Brazil, one of the newest economic powers and most fruitful country in the world, opening up new academic and professional horizons for you. Our last groups of another program, “Strategy & Marketing for Emerging Countries”, were composed of students from more than 35 different countries.

How to participate? All interested candidates should contact Mr. Franklin Meirelles, at franklin.meirelles@ibs-americas.com not later than FEBRUARY 12nd of 2016, and you will be given an application form and all detailed information regarding the program.
