Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds led an Iowa trade delegation to Brazil last year to explore its tremendous potential for Iowa companies.
At the time, Brazil was Iowa's fifth largest trading partner with exports exceeding $500 million in manufactured and value added goods. Now, a class from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) will explore Brazil, too; giving students the cultural keys to unlock their global leadership potential.
Set to debut during the 2016-2017 academic year, the "Brazil Today" class will be offered by the World Languages and Cultures department of LAS. The course is made possible through a collaborative partnership with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
Given Brazil's importance in the global economy and its significance as an agriculture producer and competitor in Iowa and the Midwest, it's critical that future leaders in business, agriculture, research, and other areas are well-prepared for the cultural nuances of doing business in or with Brazil.
The coursework will focus on the current socio-political, cultural, and economic situation in Brazil and its relationship to the U.S. Significant enrollment is expected from students in agriculture-related majors.
This course provides yet another opportunity for LAS to provide unique skills and knowledge that are critical for students of all majors. Framed within Iowa State's land-grant mission of sharing knowledge far beyond its campus borders, the course will help provide businesses in Iowa and the U.S. with a global-ready workforce.
Iowa State's Mission:
Create, share, and apply knowledge to make
Iowa and the world a better place.
