  5. 5. FDC: An international Brazilian business school Although it was founded and has its headquarters in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais (as well as offices in São Paulo), FDC has been an international school since its beginning. One of the school’s main goals always has been to achieve international reach, and the objective is part of its strategic, long-term plan. FDC attains and fosters its international presence through agreements, partnerships and high-quality management- education programs with faculty and with senior-level managers from institutions around the world. International Alliances During its first year of operation, FDC partnered with French business school HEC (Hautes Études Commerciales). The relationship illustrates the school’s desire to provide an education with a global rather than a local scope. Today, the school has two strong alliances that connect it to the global business field: with the Kellogg School of Management in the United States and with INSEAD in France. These relationships began in 1987, when FDC worked with INSEAD to create the Advanced Management Program and the Strategic People Management Program, which are still taught by FDC. INSEAD and FDC invite each other’s instructors to participate in special courses; engage in student exchanges; and provide a strong, local contact in each of the schools’ homelands. In 1992, FDC and Kellogg School of Management decided to create what would become the Skills, Tools and Competences Program - STC, which is still being taught as well. Today the Kellogg’s dean emeritus is the chairman of FDC’s International Advisory Council. Member of International Organizations Certifications Nature knows no frontiers and inspires FDC to expand knowledge across the globe. 7FDC-0071-12-Perfil_ingl._miolo_AF.indd 4-5 4/11/12 6:41 PM

  7. 7. School Networks FDC is a member of two school networks: the BRICs Network and ENLACES (Latin American Business Schools for Sustainable Economic Growth). The Brics Network is composed of FDC, The Indian Institute of Management in India, Skolkovo in Russia and the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business in China and it works with “BRICs on BRICs – Capturing Growth in New Realities,” the first joint international program on management scenarios and models of organizations from BRIC countries. To create ENLACES, FDC signed an agreement in 2011 with three Latin American business schools: Universidad de San Andrés in Argentina, Universidad de Los Andes in Colombia and Universidad de Chile. ENLACES fosters business education and sustainable economic growth in the Latin America. The network conducts an annual summit with businesspeople, government officials and representatives from educational sectors to debate and present its results. ENLACES is also looking to expand to other business schools in Latin American countries. Enlaces: BRICs: Research Partnerships FDC understands the importance of academic research’s contribution to a dynamic business environment. Through its research centers, FDC has reached out to international entities and schools to develop joint research projects. One project is The Global Competitiveness Report with the World Economic Forum (WEF). FDC’s Innovation Center conducts the research in Brazil. In similar fashion, the Center is responsible for the Brazilian part of the World Competitiveness Yearbook, developed by IMD (the International Institute of Management Development). FDC and Babson College (a U.S. school) are partners in the STEP Project. Union is strength. Consequently, union is a success strategy both in nature and in corporations. 11FDC-0071-12-Perfil_ingl._miolo_AF.indd 8-9 4/11/12 6:41 PM
  8. 8. Cooperation Agreements for Program Development FDC offers many international programs as part of its educational solutions. Some are developed in cooperation with business schools around the world; others are custom-made to meet the needs of clients across the globe. FDC’s international school partnership programs include the High-Performance Leadership Program, with ESADE (Escuela Superior de Administración y Dirección de Empresas) Business School in Spain, and the Partners for Excellence Program with Universidad de San Andrés in Argentina and Escola de Gestão do Porto in Portugal. These programs enable Brazilian students to interact with students, teachers and cultures from other countries and help strengthen FDC’s international image. In addition, FDC creates custom programs for organizations around the world. FDC programs are taught at its facilities in Belo Horizonte and São Paulo. FDC instructors also teach programs at clients’ locations if desired. The Financial Times ranks FDC’s custom programs among the top 10 worldwide, emphasizing the following: • Value for money • Follow up • Facilities • Future use • Program design • Preparation • New skills and learning • Teaching methods and materials • Aims achieved • Faculty In corporations and in nature, adaptation is evolution 13FDC-0071-12-Perfil_ingl._miolo_AF.indd 10-11 4/11/12 6:42 PM
