Culture Brief: Latin America

Date and Time

Thursday, June 7, 2012
8:00 AM - 10:00 AM


  • Bike Factory


Latin American countries have emerged strongly during this last economic recession, with a regional GDP growth rate in 2010 of 5.7%. As some of our closest neighbors, the Latin American region has developed strong socio-economic ties to the United States. However, despite the proximity, the different customs and cultural norms encountered while doing business in Latin America can be very different and confusing. At this seminar, gain an understanding of business culture and etiquette in Latin America, and develop helpful tools for success in a cross-cultural working environment.
