Why a Latam Term? The program is a robust exchange experience, in both academic and practical terms. The Latam Term is fully embedded into the curricular structure of the Fundação Getúlio Vargas, and students enrolled in the Term will follow an entire Spring semester at this think tank. The Latam Term courses follow a straight-forward common quest: how can we transform scholarly knowledge into grounded applications? Many course assignments and extracurricular activities are co-developed with institutional partners ranging from civil society, governments, businesses, to international organizations. Credits successfully obtained by the participants during the Term face minimal bureaucracy. ECTS corresponding to core subjects, core electives and free-choice electives from the different HSG Schools may be acquired through the Latam Term. Students who complete the Latam Term also receive a certificate jointly signed by the partner university. If you want to impact lives and leave your mark, the Latam Term provides the perfect framework to write your thesis hands-on on a topic related to Latin America (not obligatory), using this immersive time and GIMLA's guidance to further enrich your first extensive academic work. On the social, cultural and professional levels, Latam Term students, deepen their interpersonal and intercultural capabilities through the direct interaction with FGV students who come from all over the world. Additionally, the Latam Term offers enough freedom and opportunity to experience the place and its people. The Term is well-connected to the HSG Alumni community and supports extra-curricular activities. These include social networking events, volunteering and internship opportunities, consultancy-like experiences, as well as study trips to other Latin American countries. Such opportunities are not only culturally enriching but also add value to the CV of engaged young professionals.
