Mission

To promote the transformation of Brazil through educating innovative leaders and applied research – acting with academic excellence and an integrated vision of knowledge that transcends traditional academic disciplines.

To promote the transformation of Brazil
Through academic excellence and support to students’ professional and personal development, we seek to contribute to the development of the country. We encourage our students to think beyond the classroom, following a path of positive impact, whether in the private, public or third sector.

Insper seeks to accelerate transformations of high economic and social value through applied research. 

To educate innovative leaders
With a strong commitment from the faculty, Insper seeks to develop leadership characteristics in its students, enabling them to deal ethically with the complexities of their environment.

We offer a unique learning experience, attracting the most diverse talents through an inclusive access policy. We seek a collaborative environment, characterized by entrepreneurship and innovation, aiming at the intellectual advancement and social mobility of students.

We believe that cross-functional learning integrating skills from different areas of knowledge better prepares professionals for the global reality.

Vision

To be a global reference in education and knowledge generation about Brazil. 

We intend to have a relevant role in the academic community, in Brazil, in Latin America and in the world, being one of the global references in the areas in which we operate, recognized by teaching and the generation of knowledge.

In teaching, we aspire to be close to the frontier of the management of the learning process, the cross-functionality, and the pursuit of teaching-learning strategies that are the most effective for the development of the competences we define for our knowledge fields. Innovation and experimentation are means to achieve this goal.   

In the generation of knowledgewe will be at the frontier of the application of research methods that use the modern techniques of statistics and computing in the handling and analysis of large databases, together with strategies to identify causal relationships and behavioral models to analyze specific problems in the different knowledge fields in which we operate. This places us as a relevant player in the academic debate in our knowledge fields. In particular, we will be a reference for the world in the generation and dissemination of knowledge about Brazil in the areas of public policy, institutional and business environment, regulation and environmental issues.

Code of Ethics and Conduct

In order to fulfill our mission, it is essential that we maintain an workplace in which honesty and integrity permeate all relationships between members of our community, resulting in ethical behavior inside and outside the institution.

Among the cornerstones that guide the daily life of the Insper Community, the following stand out:

  • Commitment
  • Mutual trust
  • Responsibility
  • Valuing diversity

Insper’s Code of Ethics and Conduct

Honesty e integrity are core values ​​of every member of the Insper community. It is, therefore, expected that all members of this community have an ethical behavior inside and outside the school.

Ethics means respecting the impact of our actions on other people. Therefore, the relationships between the people who coexist in the School’s environment, i.e., students, professors and the staff, as well as the external public, must be grounded in kindness, attentiveness, and respect, and be absolutely free of any prejudice. In this way, we cultivate a healthy environment in which everyone demonstrates full commitment to Insper’s good reputation and to strengthening the school as a center of excellence in teaching and research.

Some fundamental principles that should guide the daily lives of members of the Insper community are:

Commitment – manifested in the quality of services provided, in the attention to the achievement of established objectives and goals, in a collaborative attitude focused on teamwork, which, combining different skills, will propose and implement effective solutions to the problems and challenges encountered.

Mutual trust – every individual has rights and duties, as an individual and with others. Adherence to assumed commitments, honesty, integrity and sincerity in relationships are conditions that reinforce mutual trust, essential for teamwork.

Responsibility – we are all responsible for the preservation and safety of Insper’s human, material and cultural assets, for the good management of these assets and for compliance with laws, agreements or collective conventions, in accordance with the provisions in force, including the principles under which Insper is governed, expressed in this Code of Ethics.

Valuing diversity – encouraging diversity strengthens respect and acceptance of differences. People with different origins, education, personality and talents, united around the same purpose, complement each other and increase the team’s ability to solve problems and meet the desired goals. For these principles to be transformed into achievements, it is essential to have clear and frequent communication and the sharing of ideas and information, so that the participation of each individual can be more conscious and effective. It is also necessary that all of us have a long-term vision, essential in a higher education institution, so that we can fulfill our mission and better contribute to the country’s development.

Since this Code of Ethics and Conduct is an integral part of Insper’s principles, members of the Insper community are responsible for observing and preserving it.
