Dr Sally-Ann Burnett visits Brazil
Deputy Dean of the Business School, Sally-Ann Burnett, visited Brazil last week to raise awareness of the Business School and University, whilst developing partnership opportunities predominantly in Sau Paulo and Rio.
Here she tells us about her trip and the fantastic work taking place across the globe:
This was my first trip to what is a developing market with massive potential for BPP and the Business School in particular. My aim was to support the local team (Timeni Andrade and Nathalia Varro) in their quest to develop the market in Brazil and to drive partnership developments with specific objectives whilst seeking to enhance recruitment to the Business School for May, September and beyond.
I met with 5 universities which we are keen to explore partnership agreements with BPP Business School. There is an appetite for our summer schools, term abroad opportunities, dual undergraduate degrees (top ups), dual Masters programmes and progression agreements in to our Masters programmes. There is also a need for our SoFELs programmes to develop students’ English.
I gave my guest lecture on Brexit at five universities to audiences totalling more than 200 students and faculty and I met some students from Brazil heading to BPP in May 2017.
I also met with five agents and delivered a training session to an audience of 65 agents, from 30 companies across Brazil, at a workshop in Rio. Finally, I met with a private training provider interested in working with us and ACCA.
