Universities in Rio de Janeiro
The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro was founded in 1920 and is the first and largest federal university in Brazil. One of the greatest centers of excellence in teaching and research in the country and in Latin America, the mission of the university is to provide Brazilian society with the means to dominate, expand, cultivate, apply and disseminate the universal patrimony of human knowledge, to act as a transforming force.
Our academic output is on a par with that of the world’s most advanced education institutions, and we have exchange programs with many of them. Thus, we can say that Fundação Getulio Vargas’ horizon is the limit of the imagination. We can also say that FGV’s activities have always been focused on strategic areas in Brazilian life, such as public administration, the economy, history and law.
