About the program

This course is designed to provide a unique experience – a leadership training journey unlike anything else in the world. It functions as a training academy, requiring full-time dedication and launching students on their journey to positively affect the world.

The academy views learning as a trajectory involving a series of seemingly insurmountable challenges for everyone willing to take them on. This trajectory is based on the idea espoused by various historical leaders that “negative facts can only harm you if you let them.”

The academy is not a finished place or product, but rather an ongoing and constantly evolving challenge, in which creativity, adaptability and a fighting spirit are tested on a journey that has a purpose and destination. Because of the increasing complexity of companies, production systems and new technologies present in public and private sector organizations, young apprentices need to be able to work on teams, combining different talents and personalities. This is the permanent focus of learning in this academy. Various intellectual and holistic challenges stimulate students to discover strengths and qualities in their peers.

Main educational elements

Our training is based on the following pillars:

Comprehensive human training

Over the course of four years, innovative, creative and seemingly insurmountable challenges make up the core element of our comprehensive training. These challenges require research, planning, training and teamwork. In the first year, the challenge is local, related to the Federal District, encompassing the area’s history, economy, geography, biome, social problems and innovation ecosystem. It concludes with an expedition lasting several days to the Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park. In the second year, the challenge is about a topic of national significance, such as the Amazon and everything it represents for Brazil and its people, ending with a week-long expedition to the region. In the third year, the challenge addresses the historic struggles for liberation and independence in Latin America, probably culminating in an expedition to Patagonia. In the fourth year, the challenge is global, on an issue such as climate change or pandemics, most likely culminating in a month-long hike along remote trails from France to Spain.

Learning in practice

EPPG is strategically located in Brasilia, close to the three branches of government (the legislative, executive and judiciary), international organizations, embassies and other organizations in the public, private and third sectors, with which immersion activities are structured to analyze the strategic challenges faced by them. Accordingly, students have the opportunity to take part in activities at these organizations, come into contact with this unique ecosystem and learn about the challenges faced by these organizations’ leaders and managers.

Academic excellence

All EPPG’s professors were educated at renowned institutions in Brazil and other countries. They have international experience in applied research and job market connections (at international organizations, consulting firms, government bodies and other institutions).

International exchange program

From the beginning of the course, students are prepared to participate in an international exchange program. In the third year of the course, there is a mandatory subject called Multicultural Experiences, which includes this international exchange program. It is a core part of the course curriculum.
