22 October 2013

Today is the last day of the 58th Annual Meeting of the Latin American Council for Administration Schools (CLADEA 2013), coordinated by FGV's Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (FGV/EBAPE). With the theme Past, Present and Future of Education in Latin America and Research in Business and Public Administration in the current global context, this edition has been taking place since October 20 at the Windsor Atlântica Hotel, in Rio de Janeiro, and was attended by about 600 participants - including businesspeople and representatives of governments and academic institutions from different parts of the world.

Michael Hitt (Texas A&M University), Cesar Franco (CEO, Facility), Vanessa Sobreira Casali Lima (Coca-Cola /Brazil Division), Ricardo Trade (Operations and Competition Executive Director of the 2014 FIFA World Cup) and Ferruccio Feitosa (Secretary of FIFA World Cup in the State of Ceará) were some of the people who attended the event. The highlight was the plenary session this morning in which Ricardo Trade and Ferruccio Feitosa discussed the impacts that the 2014 FIFA World Cup will have on Brazil.

According to Professor Ronaldo Parente, the purpose of the CLADEA 2013 was to help understand the trends and recent developments in Latin America through the creation of a forum for academic discussion which encourages the integration among researchers and executives. The conference's goal was to challenge participants so their research can reach new heights and the collaborative projects can promote a knowledge base on the future role of Latin America in the global economy context, says Parente, coordinator of the event.


CLADEA (El Consejo Latinoamericano de Escuela de Administración, in Spanish) is an international organization that provides a system of global cooperation and reciprocal participation with the main academic institutions in the world.
The council is part of one of the most important networks of business schools in the world and has 182 public and private member institutions from Latin America, North America, Europe and Oceania.
