Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
The Antonio Meneghetti Faculdade (AMF) offers graduation courses of Business, Technology and Law; and also MBA Programs. It has been already conducting many events and training programs in the area of social responsibility and sustainability. One example is the meeting "Brazil of the Millennium in Paris" that took place on December of 2010, in Paris, at the headquarters of the Economic, Social and Environmental Council of the French Republic. At this meeting Brazilian citizens, all of them students at AMF, presented projects that propose solutions for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of UN. Among these projects, there are a few that are being placed in practice by AMF itself. For example: Flute Project offers, for free, musical education to public school students of the region around the campus where the college is located. All the projects presented in Paris are available at the website: www.odm.faculdadeam.edu.br (a website created by AMF and dedicated exclusively to the MDGs).
Besides the projects presented during this meeting there is also project OIKOS facing sustainability through recycling and waste separation in the whole area of the campus Recanto Maestro. This project was idealized from an academic paper of one post-graduate student of Antonio Meneghetti Faculdade and won 1st Place in the FECOMERCIO Sustainability Award of 2011.

Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
The MBA Business Intuition that is already in development for five years in Antonio Meneghetti Faculdade has as one of its contents themes such as social responsibility and sustainability. Usually, the different editions of this MBA have a class of about 150 students per year, mostly entrepreneurs, business owners or executives.
In addition, through the bachelor courses of Business, Law and Information Systems offered of AMF, about 300 students have already been encouraged to discuss about these topics.

As examples of these actions we can cite the initiative "Brazil of the Millennium in Paris" that led the students of the MBA and students of the graduation of Antonio Meneghetti Faculdade to the French Republic. Among the projects presented on that occasion there were many actions taken by corporations managed by the students of the MBAs of AMF to achieve the eight Millennium Development Goals. In this projects there is also space for the participation of youth: undergraduate students of the institution take part of the teams that put in practice these projects created in the classrooms . They were involved by producing and publicizing these projects.
