Esteemed Alumni,

Thank you for attending the 5th Certificate Program for Brazilian Regulators at the Institute of Brazilian Issues at the George Washington School of Business. It was a great pleasure to receive you. We hope that the program allowed you to extend your academic and real world knowledge in the area of regulatory processes, and also offered you the opportunity to get to know our country and the city of Washington, DC.

We hope our staff did everything possible to ensure that your time with us was most pleasant and as beneficial to you as possible. On behalf of the George Washington School of Business, the Regulatory Certificate Program professors, and the IBI staff, we would like to thank you for selecting us to share this important stage of your professional development.
