Career and life development through study

In addition to advancing students’ development by adding different points of view to foster creativity and innovation, raising awareness to current issues and the humanitarian scenario means being in line with the new expectations of the job market. Companies of different sizes are increasingly concerned with issues that go beyond profits, although the engagement with social impact issues can also be good for one’s pocket.

A study carried out by Accenture Strategy points out that 83% of Brazilians prefers to buy from brands that mirror their life values. 79% of that population expects that companies will embrace attitudes that are relevant to society, by dealing with issues associated with the environment, politics and culture. Companies with more diverse teams outperform those with less diversity at a rate of 21%, according to McKinsey research, one of the most relevant consultancy companies all over the world.
