Book Description

As many developing countries strive to expand their manufacturing and export activities and to improve the efficiency of government administration, the quality and applicability of university management education becomes critically important. This case study traces the development and growth of management education in one of the key nations of Latin America. Dr. Anderson provides a comprehensive account of management programs throughout Brazil— their history, their current situation, their professorial staff, and their student population. He pays particular attention to the problems of curriculum development and the inappropriateness of U.S. models and texts. The book provides insights useful for understanding the problems faced by developing nations as they attempt to build modern educational systems in tune with economic realities.
