Hello world!

We are 14 students of Industrial Engineering and Management at Aalto University with a strong interest in the economy, business, society and the culture of Brazil. We want to enhance our own capabilities with regard to international business and, at the same time, spread knowledge and awareness of the Brazilian economy and Latin America among the students at Aalto University.

During spring 2011, we will gather background knowledge related to Brazil and doing business in Latin America. This is accomplished through our own background research and through meeting Brazil experts and companies in Finland. The climax of the project will be a 2-week study tour to Brazil in May-June, after which we will publish the results of our work.

You can follow our progress and hear the latest news through this blog. Welcome!
