International teaching and industry experience

20+ years as a manager and consultant working for local and multinational companies in Brazil, mostly in the finance sector.

Over 5 years teaching accounting in New Zealand to local and international students.

Why does Frederico enjoy teaching in the MBA programme?

I enjoy teaching. Students doing their MBA are just a pleasure to teach because they challenge the instructor and I also learn through interacting with them.

What global perspective is reflected in Fredrico's course/teaching?

The current business environment is inherently global. Accounting provides a common basis for communicating among the various stakeholders who have an interest in any particular business or industry. Accounting is not just the language of business but a key component in supporting economic activities.
