Rio Branco Institute
Rio Branco Institute
Rio Branco Institute, an advanced school of diplomacy that provides the professional training required of all candidates for service in the Brazilian diplomatic corps. Founded 18 April 1945, on the centenary of the birth of the "father of Brazilian diplomacy," the Barão do Rio Branco, the institute operates in coordination with federal and state universities in twelve regional locations (Belém, Belo Horizonte, Campo Grande, Curitiba, Florianópolis, Fortaleza, Manaus, Porto Alegre, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, and São Paulo). For the Foreign Service Preparation Course (Curso de Preparação à Carreira de Diplomata), the institute accepts qualified candidates from other developing nations as well, preparing them to serve in their own nations' diplomatic corps. Incoming candidates must have completed university, speak Portuguese and French or English, and pass a rigorous entrance exam before beginning study. In addition to training new recruits, the school provides advanced training to serving diplomats. The institute is the only school authorized to recruit and train Brazilian diplomats, and is one reason why the foreign ministry is considered to be among the most effective in the government as well as a leader in the field throughout the developing world.
