Brazil Today: Ethnicity, Economy and Environment

As global citizens, students need to have a working knowledge of other countries which are important in shaping the corporate, social and political world. As a rising state in the world economy, Brazil’s status in the business and in world affairs is shifting in a transformative way.

After an overview of its recent political history, this course will provide an introduction to Brazil in three dimensions: its diverse groups of people, the growth and development of the Brazilian economy and the environmental opportunities and challenges in modern Brazil.

This course or any single lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Renee Camerlengo at 412-268-2075 or visit

This course is sponsored by Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College, Office of the Provost, and Division of Student Affairs, and the University of Pittsburgh's Katz Graduate School of Business, Center for Latin American Studies, Global Studies Program and International Business Center.
