ADDE SALEM(ADouble Degree in Europe, South America Leadership and EMployability)

ERASMUS MUNDUS Action 3 project


Enhancing attractiveness of highly integrated programmes with Europe avoiding brain drain.

Systematic studies of the needs of the South American job market and a feedback on designing new integrated programs (joint and double degrees).

project goals


  • A systematic gathering of data from different constituencies relevant to the project.
  • A benchmark of the existing Joint/Double degrees towards the needs of the South American (and European) advanced job markets.
  • Innovation of some curricula of Joint or Double Degrees between the European and the South American Institutions. Those degrees will be particularly designed for the needs of South American students and will be very attractive for them.


  • An external dissemination toward companies (South American and European), associations and governmental bodies to make them aware of the value added of employing joint graduates in South American countries.
  • An external dissemination towards other European and South American Institutions to encourage them to set up joint degree projects that take into account the results of our study.

where to live and work2
Where to live and work

“ I want to work in my country.”

“I plan to live in Brazil in order to bring to my country the knowledge I have got. “

“I want to live in Brazil: There are more work opportunities.”

“In order to gain professional experience before aiming for higher positions in global companies. “

  • Motivation – Outcomes match expectations
  • Perceived risks – No clear picture, students are optimistic
  • Extra study time – 2 semesters is OK
  • Preferred continent – Country and macro-economic situation may be important
  • Skills and competences – Good match but no gap-filling
  • Interpersonal skills are becoming more and more important
    • Almost as important as professional expertise (employers fear the potential negative consequences of poor interpersonal skills on the team as a whole)
  • Professional expertise is paramount (i.e subject specific knowledge and expert thinking)
  • International orientation is relevant
    • Companies appreciate foreign experience, can tip the balance in selecting a graduate for interview or in a recruitment decision. Interesting to notice that having done part of the study abroad is more appreciated than having done the entire study abroad.
