The Brazil Project was begun by Michigan State University, but was a multi-institution effort to bring education programs to Brazil concerning agriculture, business administration, and school administration including library sciences. It was conducted in three parts with the final part being an audio-visual project. The project originally centered around the creation of the São Paulo School of Business and required a contract between Michigan State University and The Institute of Inter-American Affairs of the International Cooperation Administration. The project was so successful that it led to the creation of business schools throughout South America and expanded its educational scope to other educational areas.
