What? That's right? In times of dollar stratospheric values,
than this crazy are you talking about? Crazy or genius? The
difference is subtle ... judge for yourself.
Come on ...
The summary of the print media, visual and digital is simple:
it's not easy for anybody. With the dollar beyond $ 4, embark on
an adventure of an MBA two years outside of Brazil is almost a
joke of a milhãozinho. Scary, isn't it? And, at the same time,
the search for this kind of course didn't.
But what happens? Only millionaires will behind this
enterprise? Far from it. Despite the high costs, the return on
investment offered by the experience is still quite attractive
(in the main schools, the average is that you recover your
investment in 4-5 years).
And if you can take advantage of the tools that can help you
relieve that bar, the Bill gets even better. Most people already
know that there are some institutions that can provide
scholarships, being the best-known Fundação Estudar Lemann

you should invest your time. Oh, and as the pot of money is
finite, who subscribes before, has a greater chance of receiving
part of the cake.
But then it's a matter of luck?
Don't. It's a matter of merit and, above all, a question of
what the school is looking for at that moment. For example,
talking with the head of Purdue's admission, he commented that
the Brazilians that are approved are strong candidates to
receive this scholarship, in some value (#ficaadica). That's
because they have an interest in increasing the number of
students from our small town Christmas. One thing that you can
do to increase your chances is to identify which schools have a
low rate of births compared to the other nationalities. How to
find out? Talk, talk, talk. And google, of course.
In General, for most popular universities (where there are

that are not as known to us, they need to try harder. And they
