Internationalization is a process that permeates Insper from its strategic plan to the day to day of its students, professors and employees. Thinking globally and acting locally is one of the dilemmas embraced by the school that reflects our commitment to the development of the country.

We have the International Advisory Board in our leadership, as well as global partners who help us and share the best practices in the Higher Education sector.

The internationalization scope is clearly present in Insper’s strategy:

  • Become a global reference in education and knowledge creation about Brazil;
  • Be a benchmark for research excellence about and for Brazil, while serving as a role model for other Brazilian institutions;
  • Develop a teaching model that can make innovative, socially responsible leaders with solid argumentative structure and analytical competence; and
  • Promote diversity to improve the awareness of problems and the development of solutions, while building up students’ empathy and their ability to understand the reality from the perspective of the users of those solutions.

The following strategic goals guide the internationalization plan:

  • Develop global competence in our undergraduate and graduate students; and
  • Promote Insper as a benchmark for teaching and research in Brazil, while creating global opportunities.

As for international accreditation, Insper is among the 1% of business schools in the world that have three business accreditations known as “Triple-crown”: AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. The school is also recognized by the CFA Institute and the Financial Times, and it is also part of associations, such as the International University Consortium for Executive Education (UNICON), the Executive MBA Council, the European Foundation for Management Development, the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and the CLADEA (Latin American Council of Business Schools).
