Hi, my name is Ariane and I’m an exchange student from Canada. Studying here at COPPEAD gives me the experience of living in an incredible city like Rio de Janeiro and also learning Portuguese, it is
fundamental for my career to be able to interact with local business leaders and
also my classmates and it gives me an opportunity to create a bigger
international network. Even in this globalized world, know two countries are the same and studying abroad helps you open your mind to new leadership and
also different business styles which can, ultimately, benefit you if you’re going to work in culturally diverse teams. The participation in class
at COPPEAD helps strengthen self-confidence, which allowed me to
break the ice really easily and make new friends faster and I really believe that my experience here at COPPEAD will give me a competitive advantage in the market.
