During the past week and a half, Professor Marcus Goncalves expanded the school’s horizons by venturing to Brazil with his graduate International Operation Management class. Students and instructor departed Massachusetts on May 12th and returned on the 22nd after spending 10 days in the city of Victoria on Brazil’s coast.

The students viewed the scenery, businesses, and infrastructure around Victoria, but they also had to attend class as if they went to school in Brazil. The class met every morning in their hotel, the Praia Do Sol.

The class was led by a paid instructor from Brazil’s Salesian College. It provided insights into the many areas of Brazilian international business operations, as well as into change and innovation management.
