Infosys, India’s second largest IT services company on Thursday said that 39 Brazilian students who studied at the company’s Global Education Center in Mysore, have graduated.

The students, belonging various universities and technology firms in Brazil were enrolled for the training programme last year. Their training focused on Internet-based technologies.

“This class of graduates competed and performed equally with students from around the world. Yet I see a greater achievement for our Brazilian students since they accomplished their training in English, a foreign language for them,” said Puneet Gill, Head of Infosys Brazil.

Said to be the largest corporate training facility in the world, Infosys’ global training centre in Mysore trains over 12,000 students every year. Last year, Infosys sponsored training programmes to around 73 students from the Detroit area in the US. The training was aimed at converting science graduates into computer science professionals.
