The Program, with the support of the Accounting Department and the Vice-Rectory of Postgraduate Studies at the University of São Paulo, started its strategic plan to construct international exchange and reseach cooperation channels in 2011. That year, research was developed and suggestions were given for centers the Program was interested in: University of Birmingham, University of Manchester, Politecnico di Milano, University of Leuven, London School of Economics.
In 2012, Profs. André Carlos Busanelli de Aquino and Vinicius Aversari Martins visited the University of Birmingham, University of Manchester and Politecnico di Milano. In the same year, the first phase of the cooperation was structure: bringing visiting professors for short-term courses. The results were collected in March and April 2013. From Manchester Business School, Prof. Jean Shaoul, PhD (Emeritus Professor at Manchester Business School) taught a subject in English for the 2013 class, and professors Richard Batley, Ron Hodges, Paul Jackson and Simon DeLay, PhD from the University of Birmingham taught another subject to the same class. In addition, collaborative research meetings were held.
The second phase of the Program is being elaborated through the visit of young PhD’s from the department for senior traineeships of six months to one year at the University of Birmingham, at the departments of accounting of Birmingham Business School, and the Institute of Local Government, associated with the international development department.
In 2013, the second mission took place at the University of Leuven, to get to know the structure of research groups, and to the University of Birmingham to seek technology for postgraduate teaching and the structuring of direct doctoral programs.
In parallel with the efforts focused on Europe, Prof. Adriana Maria Procópio de Araújo conducted the strengthening of relations with the University of Illinois, in cooperation with Prof. A. Rashad Abdel-khalik, director of the International Accounting Research Center, VK Zimmerman Center, for joint projects including student and faculty exchange.
Another phase in the internationalization is the development of post-doctoral projects by advisors in international institutions:
