Program Description:
ISEP Direct Brazil
  • Attracting visitors from all over the world, São Paulo is a diverse international city, but with its own distinct local flare. With street art on nearly every corner, the city is brimming with creativity, color, and energy.  
  • Studying at FAAP is an exciting opportunity to bring new perspectives to common classes such as business, communication, digital arts and fashion. 
  • Today, FAAP is considered one of the most important and respected academic and cultural institutions in Brazil, giving you access to high quality faculty and world-class facilities. 
  • Take part in the city’s most popular sport by joining a futebol (soccer) team and competing with natives who live and breathe the sport. Or have an out-of-the-box experience by participating in the brand-new sport of beach tennis, a mixture of beach volleyball, tennis, and badminton (available to play on one of the on-campus sand courts). 

With a population of almost 12 million inhabitants that are made up of over 70 nationalities, São Paulo is an international city that offers diversity, vibrancy, and culture. Experience dancing the Samba during Carnaval, strut the runway at the São Paulo Fashion Week, or show your pride at the largest Pride parade in the world.  

What We Love About FAAP 
Located in Higienópolis, one of the most traditional districts of São Paulo, Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado is one of the most prominent institutions promoting arts and culture in the region of São Paulo. We particularly love this program because of the access to on-campus artistic opportunities like the Brazilian Art Museum, the FAAP Theater, and workshops on wood, metal, jewelry-making, and more.

Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP) in Brazil offers the best of many worlds. São Paulo, the largest city in the southern hemisphere, is a political, economic, and cultural hub. This bustling metropolis is ideal for international relations or business majors looking to understand the Latin American perspective on world issues. The multitude of museums and theaters are also fantastic for students studying the arts. FAAP offers small classes and individualized programs. ISEP students are welcome to attend and combine courses in all fields of study provided they have the appropriate level of Portuguese and preparation for the classes they choose.

The Study in English program at FAAP offers courses primarily focusing on business and international studies. Students can take up to six (6) courses in English. English courses in the past have included subjects such as Doing Business in Brazil, Human Rights, and Environment and Social Change in Brazil.
