THIENGO, Lara Carlette  e  BIANCHETTI, Lucídio. Internationalized universities or World Class University? Problematization and trends from the Latin American context. Sér.-Estud. [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.53, pp.81-102.  Epub 12-Maio-2020. ISSN 2318-1982.

The aim of this paper is to analyze the place of internationalization for the construction of World Class Universities (WCUs), and, more specifically, how internationalization has been taking the lead in the race for academic excellence/or a determined profile of WCU in the Latin American countries. For this, in methodological terms, it is used the analysis of documents from International Organizations, Institutional Development Plans of Latin American universities with the best positions in the international rankings and data from questionnaires answered by researchers of Higher Education/Higher Education Policies in Latin American and Caribbean countries from an online platform. In general, it can be seen that there is a kind of second type of WCU being forged for countries that do not make up the dynamic axis of capital, ensuring the diffusion of the model, even with adaptations. In this sense, internationalization appears as the great axis that promotes excellence for the countries of the region.
