Business & Management (1)



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. Public administration is essential as it reinforces the positive concept of state bureaucracy, and it is crucial in order for Brazil to be a great democracy.


The Research Network was created in 2016 with the objective of encouraging the development of applied research with excellence, strong impact and high level of innovation, thus to support the institution’s mission. To attain this objective, the Network helps to bring together the research activities of the public and private sectors and incentivize the formation of other research networks in Brazil and abroad. The Research Network also helps to disseminate the knowledge produced by the schools and research centers of FGV.

It was a great experience, we had not as many students in classes, what made it easier to get a good friendship with all and also it helped to get involved deeper with the subjects.
