About the program

The course: a leadership training academy 

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.

Why choose this program?

The FGV´s School of Public Policy and Government (FGV EPPG) in Brasilia is attuned with FGV’s mission to contribute to Brazil’s development. To this end, FGV has launched a unique course designed exclusively for all those who want to help the country’s process of change and dedicate themselves to a journey of transformation and leadership.


FGV was rated one of the world’s top five think tanks in the 2020 Global Go To Think Tank Index Report, published by the University of Pennsylvania.


Our training is based on the following pillars:

Integral Human Training

Innovative challenges, creative and apparently insurmountable challenges constitute the main element of integral training. Challenges must be carried out in teams, in a short time period, in activities that have significance related to FGV EPPG's mission to transform Brazil. There will be six subjects over the four years of the course, which include expeditions to Chapada dos Veadeiros in Amazonia, Patagonia and Camino de Santiago de Compostela.

Practical learning

Immersion activities to solve real world challenges with ministries, secretariats, congress, courts, international agencies, NGOs and companies. Learning scientific theories and technologies for the application of algorithms and artificial intelligence will take place simultaneously alongside application in practical settings.

Academic Excellence
