Abstract

In this article I present my reflections on thirteen years directing community-based learning projects. From 2002 to 2014, I taught 47 community-based courses to MBA students at the University of Sao Paulo, involving a network of 40 organizations that help people in need. I discuss the concept of community based learning, the context of the course, the process of creation of the community partners network, the project achievements and the media coverage. I discuss the benefits the projects brought to the students, to the community partners, to the University of Sao Paulo, to the scholars and to the people served by the community partners. I also reflect about the drawbacks and the lessons learned.
