Students that participate, represent various diplomatic members countries of the United Nations, for which they should be trained in topics such as culture, domestic and foreign policy, economy and society, to discuss real issues of national and international interest in the bodies and committees of the UN. For this and more, the MUN is an educational and cultural event class, which not only promotes growth and academic training of students, but also facilitates the development of skills such as public speaking, rhetoric and negotiation, which are useful in personal and professional life of those involved.
