Based on their preferences and needs, the student can choose the ideal composition between face-to-face classes at the Paulista Campus, Florida Campus, and at the other campuses of partner universities abroad. The student can also decide whether to pursue a diploma only, or a national or international double degree, among other choices made under the individualized guidance of the Academic Advisor.

. For face-to-face classes in Brazil, the student can opt for a more intense university experience, with weekly face-to-face classes, or with intensive face-to-face courses, ideal for those who live outside the city of São Paulo. For students living in other locations, the curriculum will allow options such as classes on Saturdays or in intensive modules of two weeks per semester, with the other activities being carried out online.

In addition to the mandatory courses, there is a wide range of optional courses, taken on the Florida campus and at partner universities abroad, for students to focus their studies on areas of knowledge that interest them. With the individualized support of Academic Advisor, academic training meets the student's professional expectations and preferences.

The disciplines are carefully evaluated to define the ideal format for their development, involving teachers from various parts of the world and the experience in Brazil or abroad for contact with different social and business realities.

Credit transfer agreements with universities around the world allow our students to obtain two degrees: a Brazilian diploma recognized by the MEC and a diploma issued by a foreign university of their choice. A unique opportunity to expand your training and professional possibilities abroad. The international double degree usually comprises 3 years of study in Brazil and 2 years of study abroad. Similar solutions will also be available to Graduate and Short Term Undergraduate students (Technologist).
