Spring break in Brazil! (And a finance course.)

If you want your spring break itinerary to include São Paulo, Belo Horizonte, Rio and other destinations in Brazil, consider adding Financial Modeling of Emerging Markets (FNBU 4471) to your course list for next semester.

This upper-level finance elective is tied to a study tour. Professor David Talbot, a working finance professional from McKinley Capital Management, will teach the class at Rose Hill on Monday nights during the spring semester, and from March 9 through 16, all students enrolled will travel together to Brazil.

Students in this course will learn how to model and evaluate individual Brazilian equity securities in the context of their relevant global sectors and in the context of Brazil’s economic, political and social framework. Priority in registration will go to seniors majoring or concentrating in finance, with other students given the opportunity to enroll after that group.

Interested students should contact their class dean and/or Michael Polito, assistant dean and director of international programs, as soon as possible. To participate in the study tour, a $500 deposit is due to Susan Brucculeri on the fourth floor of Hughes Hall by November 29.
