Abstract

Knowledge studied in academia is mostly inherited from the northern hemisphere and little is said of the southern contribution. Without a doubt, United States has left a remarkable legacy in higher education, once Brazil currently manifest restlessness, longings, and recent remarkable growth. Brazil built several new public universities and invested in financial incentive programs to enhance educational outcomes. Brazil takes refuge in international support instead of seeking to foster and strengthen internal talent or even attract talent from abroad, which United States has done for years. Thus, this article presents important characteristics of American higher education system and compare it to Brazilian’s. Based on an international comparative study, this article uses distinctive analysis of higher education development and its potential to advance quality of education in general. It also examines and discusses the real and viable possibility for Brazilian higher education improvement opportunities based on North American academic experiences.
