Brazil is the largest economy in Latin America and the seventh largest economy in the world. São Paulo is the finance and business capital of Brazil. More and more businesses are setting up offices in São Paulo; in 2011, more than 10 million foreign people visited the city—most for business purposes. Although most South American countries are Spanish-speaking, 51 percent of South Americans speak Portuguese, and nearly all Portuguese speakers reside in Brazil, known for its friendly people, natural beauty, and its popular Rio de Janeiro.
Since 1954, FGV has been preparing more than just professionals; it has been preparing citizens with a strong knowledge to cope with the challenges of a constantly changing world. The FGV faculty consists of approximately six hundred professors and collaborators in executive education programs, with a strong academic and professional background.
