What makes São Paulo unique?

As anyone who reads the Business section of the newspaper knows, Brazil is surging. And nowhere is the country’s dazzling rise more evident than in its capital of commerce, São Paulo. An Alpha Global City, São Paulo’s currently the tenth richest metropolitan center on Earth, and it’s projected to beat out Paris and rise to number six by 2025.

This extravagant growth doesn’t just make for an amazing business case study; it’s also flooded the city with the sorts of ultra-high-end boutique hotels, luxury goods retailers, and top-notch restaurants more often associated with Beverly Hills than Brazil. But as any visitor to glamour-drenched Rua Oscar Freire knows, this outdated way of thinking is so twentieth-century. So step aside, Champs-Élysées—it’s São Paulo’s time to shine!

Interns will be required to enroll in an academic program at FAAP for the duration of the internship. Options include spring semester (19 weeks), fall semester (19 weeks) and summer term (12 weeks). Academic credit for the coursework will be provided by FAAP; academic credit for the internship must be arranged through the U.S. home institution.
