BMI participants complete South America executive module in Brazil

The latest – South American – destination in BMI’s Global Mobility Scheme has been inaugurated with a focused module in Brazil. It included lectures at the FGV EAESP São Paulo School of Business and site visits to diverse international corporations. Participating executives from Belgium, France, Lithuania, Morocco and Italy were thus also able to develop their Latin American business networks.
 
 “This new BMI-LSM module gives Baltic and Belgian executives a unique chance to visit the economic powerhouse of Brazil and get first-hand experience of the world’s 9th largest economy with all its regional and global links. The venue on the South American continent perfectly complements those BMI offers executives in Europe, Asia and North America,” said BMI Director General Jaunius Pusvaškis.
 
“The trip was well-organized and expanded my understanding of Brazil and all Latin America,” said BMI alumnus Dinas Petrikas, the Head of Corporate Banking at Danske Bank in Lithuania. “FGV’s professors did a good job sharing experience on all aspects of doing business in this part of the world. Plus the companies we visited and managers we met ranged from cosmetics and the restaurant industry to home-furnishings production and multinational banking,” he added.
 
Dinas Petrikas was one of three participants from BMI in the module organized jointly with BMI’s Belgian partner school Louvain School of Management from 18-22 September. Based in the city of São Paulo, currently South America’s most dynamic international business hub, the programme is open exclusively to Executive MBA students and alumni from BMI and LSM.
