This article analyzes the influence exercised by the so-called “American model” on the setting up of the institutional framework which allowed the consolidation of scientific competence in Economics in Brazil. It shows the principal mechanisms through which the patterns established in the developed countries, in the USA in particular, were incorporated into the studies of Economics in Brazil; and also the resistance met by the process of internationalization or Americanization in some areas of the university environment in the country. The data and tables organized offer a quantitative dimension of this process.
