WALTHAM, MA - Brandeis International Business School (IBS) announced today that it has signed an innovative new partnership with Instituto de Ensino e Pesquisa (Insper), a private, not-for-profit school of business and economics in São Paulo, Brazil, that will allow students to study at Brandeis IBS and earn degrees from both institutions. Pictured right: Dean Magid at last year's Brazil Symposium at Brandeis IBS. 

The partnership will allow students to earn a BA in Economics or Business Administration from Insper and an MA in International Economics and Finance from Brandeis IBS in five years.

“We are pleased to move forward with this educational partnership that promises to bring talented students from Brazil to Brandeis to continue their studies and enrich our student body with their perspective on the global economy,” said Brandeis IBS Dean Bruce Magid. “This is yet another milestone in our ongoing effort to form meaningful and lasting partnerships in Latin America that will educate the next generation of global business leaders.”

“This collaboration will bring to our students not just academic opportunities, but also the opportunity to learn alongside students of many cultures and backgrounds,” said Luca Borroni-Biancastelli, PhD, Dean of International Affairs at INSPER. “We look forward to working with Brandeis IBS as we implement this exciting agreement.”

The partnership is a part of Brandeis IBS’ Latin America and Brazil Initiatives, which focus on creating avenues of global cooperation and exchange to benefit students and faculty at IBS and their counterparts in Brazil and throughout Latin America. The announcement follows the formation of a similar partnership with Universidad EAFIT in Medellin, Colombia, through which finance students can study at Brandeis IBS and earn degrees from both institutions. In 2013, Brandeis IBS launched comparable agreements with Universidad LaSalle in Mexico City, and Universidad de Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico.

The Insper program will begin in January 2015.
