The Business and Culture track is affiliated with the economics school of the Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV), one of the most prestigious business schools in Latin America. Students that speak Portuguese fluently have the opportunity to take classes in Portuguese with Brazilian students. Before the beginning of the semester, students must enroll in the month-long intensive Portuguese language and Brazilian culture course, and take a Portuguese language class at CIEE during the semester.
