Engaging Latin American Course

Course Number - STAP Orange

PMGT 6265

Is This Program for Me - Orang


Engaging Latin America will explore the challenges of advocacy and communications as an organization throughout the region, which has increasing economic and geopolitical significance. Course participants will be exposed to the governance structures, the power holders and decision makers, and best practices in advocacy in areas including Brazil, the Andean countries, Central America, and Mexico. Pre-departure class sessions in Washington, D.C., will provide a broad overview of the history, culture, economics, politics, and geopolitical relationships within Latin America, which provide the critical foundation to our study. We also will examine comparative analyses of campaigns in Latin American countries and consider the challenges and opportunities for advocating and negotiating within the region.

During our travel period in Sao Paulo and our day trip to Brasilia, course participants will gain insights into successfully Engaging Latin America from the exchange of ideas with business, communications, media and public affairs, diplomatic, and political leaders.
