In view of the dynamics of the economic, political and social changes taking place in several countries, the organizations have been concerned about hiring people who can manage processes and present skills to predict and respond to these changes in an effective and timely manner.

We, at FAE, are inviting you to develop these skills with an academic experience abroad. Our mission to transform our students, as well as students from our partner universities, into real key players has led us to develop programs that include opportunities to be exposed to international cultures, educational and professional practices, and explore the answers to the great challenges faced by global corporations.
