Together with the University of Mannheim Business School (Germany), the University of South Carolina – Darla Moore School of Business (USA) and the ESSEC Business School (France), the FGV/EBAPE has set up a cooperation network underpinning an undergraduate studies program called the International Business Education Alliance (IBEA).
Selected students spend a semester at each of its four participant institutions during their undergraduate studies. Each partner institution offers at least one course that is specific to the IBEA curriculum, in addition to cultural courses. Additionally, each partner institution must run an activities program for the semester when it hosts the initiative students.
In addition to in-depth exposure to local and regional cultures, students build up hands-on experience in global management, working closely with a corporate partner of each school.
