Thus, COPPEAD has internationalized by forming strategic alliances with highly reputed and internationally accredited business schools in the five continents. The alliances and partnerships contemplate student exchange agreements and over 400 course-hours in English during the exchange terms for the Full-time MBA Program, visiting professors, study-weeks, dual-degree opportunities and international modules for the Executive MBA Program, among others. Exchange terms at COPPEAD, when the offer of elective disciplines in English is concentrated, run from approximately mid July to early October and from mid October to before Christmas. COPPEAD receives exchange students from partner institutions in North & South America, Western & Eastern Europe, Asia, Oceania and Africa, fostering a real multicultural environment. Focusing on regional integration, in 2008, COPPEAD took the initiative to found ALADEN (the Latin American Alliance of Business Schools) with internationally accredited Business schools in Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela, mainly targeting the understanding of the Latin American business context and wealth creation, in terms of the socio economic development of the home-countries of the five members. The SLAE (Latin-American Study-Week) is offered every year, in Spanish, on a rotary basis by ALADEN member institutions. Other international partnerships include Building Ventures in Latin America (designed to prepare students to build and grow successful businesses in today's changing marketplace); Dual-Degree agreements with three internationally accredited French business schools for our Executive MBA students, The Global Partners (a Full-time International MBA program with a US and a European partner), the International Consortium of Executive MBA programs (a 10 days module offered simultaneously by the partner schools located in Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia) and the International Practicum for Full-time MBA students (a one-week intensive program together with a US partner, where students work together in consultancy projects for Brazilian companies)

Rio de Janeiro: Carioca Landscapes between the Mountain and the Sea has been inscribed upon the World Heritage List of the
Convention concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage. Inscription on this List confirms the exceptional universal value of a cultural or natural site, which deserves protection for the benefit of all humanity.

" The listed site consists of an exceptional urban setting rather than built heritage. It encompasses the key natural elements that have shaped and inspired the development of the city: from the highest points of the Tijuca National Parks mountains down to the sea. They also include the Botanical Gardens, established in 1808, Corcovado Mountain with its celebrated statue of Christ and the hills around Guanabara Bay, including the extensive designed landscapes along Copacabana Bay which have contributed to the outdoor living culture of this spectacular city. Rio de Janeiro is also recognized for the artistic inspiration it has provided to musicians, landscapers and urbanists." UNESCO World Heritage Centre (whc.unesco.org/)
