Study Abroad in Brazil

students with CGTC Flag in Brazil

Alongside our friends at FAE in Curitiba, Brazil, Global Initiatives is excited to soon welcome faculty-led study abroad to Brazil for students in Business and Logistics Management Programs. Thanks to the U.S. Department of State’s Increase and Diversify Education Abroad for U.S. Students (IDEAS) Program, which aims to develop and expand study abroad programs around the world, CGTC was able to develop this program. 

Check out what’s coming soon!




Faculty and staff will spend Summer 2025 planning activities for the courses. The division anticipates a week-long itinerary in Brazil traveling in May 2025.

While the study abroad experience is designed for students in Business Management and Logistics Management, opportunities to enroll in the courses may become available to students whose program offers space for an occupational elective.

Earned credits are transferrable to other 4-year institutions throughout Georgia.



The Office of Global Initiatives anticipates the program cost to be between $3,200-$3,800 per student, excluding tuition and fees. Cost includes airfare, in-country travel, most meals, room accommodations, required insurance, and trip protection. Students will be notified of full program costs as they become available.
