SAP University Alliances at FIA (Administration Institute Foundation)


On May 18 we held a welcome event at the Foundation Administration Institute (In Portuguese: Fundação Instituto de Administração, FIA). FIA is a Foundation of Universidade de Sao Paulo (USP) and it is among the best administration Universities of São Paulo, Brazil. FIA is a UA Full member. The event counted with the attendance of 80 students and 4 lecturers who were really eager to learn SAP.


Through this 2 hour event, we had the opportunity to share with students a little of what is SAP. The local SAP experts, who were Mauricio Dutra, Director
of Controlling,
Marcelo Tomelin and Fabri Vilela, Directors of Services leaded a very interesting conversation with the local passionate students and teachers, talking about what SAP is and answering questions from students.


The students were excited about every comment of our speakers, so our event turned up as chat and dialogue and not as speech. Students really enjoyed this model much more and participated with a remarkable enthusiasm the students did questions about our company and how we work and others.


The topics and questions that were handled were from various topics, from  how we are positioned in the global market, to how is the interaction between managers and trainees or students, what made them very curious . We even counted with the presence of an intern studying at the FIA who testified about SAP; to show the other side of the coin. Lucas Macedo, he can speak a bit how is to be a SAP Intern to students                               



And last but not list, I talked about how students could be impacted with our SAP University Alliances program and what are the benefits, among others. Students were very happy with the signed agreement between SAP and FIA, and they were all excited about what’s to come from this partnership.

They became excited with the all that we can provide to they. Probably in the next semester the students going to have SAP in his studies.


Finally, Leandro José Morilhas , the director of FIA, expressed his special thanks to the all FIA structure and to all the participants of that event. For sure, it was the first event of many others between this amazing partnership.

I am so glad to have these incredible SAP Directors, thanks you guys by the amazing presentation.  And through this email I would like to say THANK YOU to each of the SAP colleagues who supported me with their incredible participation: Thank you Mauricio Dutra, thank you Marcelo Tomelin, thank you Lucas Macedo and thank you Fabri Vilela for all your support during this two-hour event!
