Dear AIB Members, FIU CIBER is proud to announce our 2012 Professional Development in International Business Program to Mercosur<http://ciber.fiu.edu/mercosur>. Our 16th Annual Mercosur PDIB Program<http://ciber.fiu.edu/mercosur> will explore how Brazil, Argentina, and Chile are dealing with the global recession, especially as those economies whose growth relied mostly on commodity prices, will be forced to change policies as a way to entice business creation. This program is designed for business professionals and faculty members who wish to develop an international perspective and to observe Latin America first-hand. Participants will have the opportunity to meet with business executives from multinational and domestic companies, business professors and experts, including cultural visits to learn about the idiosyncrasy of each of these countries. The program fee for this program is $4,000 USD and includes hotel accommodations (single occupancy), all regional flights between countries, ground transportation during the program, company visits, entry to cultural sites and attractions, and some meals. The program fee does not include international airfare, visa or passport fees, or meals not covered in the program. You can learn more about this program on our website. http://ciber.fiu.edu/mercosur The deadline to enroll is February 28, 2012.
