Ohio State MBA students were in Brazil as part of the Global Applied Projects (GAP) program where Fisher College of Business MBA students work on consulting projects for companies around the world for seven weeks, three of them abroad.

Three groups were in Brazil. One group traveled to Goiás to work with CerradinhoBio, and two groups went to São Paulo, where one team worked with the Ohio State Brazil Gateway and the other with Visagio/Imaginarium.

The students worked together to understand their clients’ needs and deliver innovative yet feasible projects. As a culmination of their projects, the Brazil Gateway hosted a special event for the team members, prospective students and alumni in São Paulo.
