Notable Alumni Generate Successful Ties to Brazil
Business school programs across the US have graduated a number of international students that return to their home countries as leaders in their fields and successful representatives of the school’s global network.
The University of Chicago Booth School of Business starts with a diverse student body - 12% of its Full-Time MBA students list a Latin American country as their primary citizenship, and an additional 2% possess dual citizenship.
Many University of Chicago students graduate as business leaders who substantially impact their field and home country, such as distinguished alumnus Dr. Joaquim Vieira Ferreira Levy, who, alongside other international business leaders, is Brazil's Finance Minister and a member of the Chicago Booth Global Advisory Board.
“Chicago Booth provides not only an education, but a lifelong relationship, especially for those who want to return and serve as leaders in businesses and industries across Brazil. Moreover, the students will become active members of our global community of 49,000 alumni,” said Booth Dean Sunil Kumar.
Pace University first established international relations with Brazil in 1962 and today those partnerships have expanded through Professor of Management, Dr. Claudia Green’s annual International Management Field Studies. Most recently in Brazil, students are developing collaborative case studies for sustainable entrepreneurship that will have a substantial, positive impact on Brazil’s economy. Strongly influenced by the international, entrepreneurial spirit at Pace, a recent Brazilian alumna has launched her own international media company to help companies market their brands across global channels.
The University of Arkansas’ Sam M. Walton College of Business ensures graduates remain both connected and supported by the school wherever their careers take them. Each year it recognizes Walton College alumni for their outstanding achievements in business. Awards include “Entrepreneur of the Year,” which honors a Walton graduate who has proven innovative and successful in a business venture of his or her own creation and the “Lifetime Achievement,” which is reserved for a Walton graduate who has made significant achievements in his or her career and is recognized as an industry and community leader.
The success of many alumni can be attributed not only to the strength of their business school education, but to a strong alumni network which supports and honors successful endeavors across the US and the world.
