Nearly 1,300 emerging business leaders graduate from CSU's College of Business every year

As a College, we are guided by the belief that business, free enterprise, and all those involved in our community have the power to create change and enhance the quality of life in Colorado and around the globe and the faculty instill that belief in everyone they teach. CSU's College of Business faculty also teach in our experientially based undergraduate program with nine concentrations and in our top-ranked graduate programs.

The highly challenging Global Business Academy courses and activities are taught by distinguished faculty members from the College of Business and other colleges across campus at Colorado State University.

Paulo Borges de Brito, CSU

Instructor, Department of Management, Inclusive Excellence Fellow

Paulo Brito

Paulo Brito is a faculty instructor in the Department of Management and an Inclusive Excellence Fellow. He teaches international business.


"There is something about approaching the ‘last years’ of school that instills a sense of urgency. I like to push GBA students a little harder, and it is amazing how they respond. They know they are no longer children and that it is time to get serious about what's next. I love the excitement we had in our international negotiation simulation exercise and how it related to their different cultural backgrounds and also how important it will be for their business decisions if they decide to do business overseas." – Paulo Brito
