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).
The IBEA program enables selected students to spend a semester at each of the four participating institutions during their undergraduate studies. Each partner institution offers at least one course that is specific to the IBEA curriculum (a cohort-specific course), as well as cultural courses. In addition, each partner institution will run an activities program for the semester when it hosts the cohort.
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.
