City: Rio de Janeiro
Brazil’s most famous city, Rio de Janeiro is famed worldwide for its strong and promising economy. With a population of over fifteen million forming the second-largest market in Brazil, it offers advantageous conditions for corporate newcomers and appreciates fresh investments. But none of these benefits can outweigh its tourism potential: every year, it welcomes thousands of visitors from all over the world, drawn to its beautiful beaches and other natural attractions, including Carnival, and above all the vivacious hospitality of its people.
The modern building is comprised of three floors and a basement with a total area of five thousand four hundred square meters (equal to almost sixty thousand square feet). The space can accommodate 616 students and offers 120 study areas. The building offers a modern large student lounge at the entry-level; two Harvard–style lecture theatres seating up to 70 people, and five large classrooms – each accommodating 48 students – with fixed seating and desks that are arranged in a traditional row layout.
