The University

Innovation requires boldness and courage, but above all wisdom. It is necessary to value the experiences gained in the past, understand all the nuances provided by the current reality and, finally, be aware of the changes and opportunities the future holds.

In 1970, Anhembi Morumbi was founded as the first college in Brazil to offer higher education in the Tourism sector. Back then, many people did not quite understand the breadth of the Tourism segment, or even its importance to the country’s economy. Concepts such as tourism potential and hospitality were introduced. And most importantly: a process of professional qualification started, which is increasingly valued in the labor market.

Since then, the pioneering spirit is the hallmark of Anhembi Morumbi’s history, causing profound changes in the direction of higher education in Brazil. There are many examples of unprecedented courses launched by the Institution, among them, Gastronomy, Chiropractic, Digital Design and Civil Aviation – areas in which it became a teaching reference.
