Multidisciplinary Training

FGV EBAPE students are trained to work in different segments, through theoretical and practical classes that provide knowledge of Public and Business Administration, thus expanding their possibilities of acting in the job market.

Globalized Course

FGV EBAPE offers students the possibility of undertaking a global program in which students from three major international business schools also participate: the University of Mannheim Business School (Germany), the University of South Carolina - Darla Moore School of Business (United States) and ESSEC Business School (France-Singapore). Entitled International Business Education Alliance (IBEA), the program forms a group of 40 international students who will stay together in each country mentioned above, for a period of six months.


FGV EBAPE seeks to provide its students with the opportunity to spend at least one semester at one of our partner schools. At the beginning of the program, students are prepared to participate in the exchange. English proficiency is essential for undergraduate students.

This requirement is explained by several reasons:

From the second year of the General Administration undergraduation, all the Marketing component classes are taught in English and, from the third year to the end of the course, all the components are taught in English.

The mandatory curricular component, the Multicultural Experience, in the third year of the program integrates international exchange as a central part of the course curriculum. All students are expected to study abroad at one of FGV EBAPE's international partners.

In the last year of the course, students are encouraged to start internships that favor the development of their international career in global organizations, since in the eighth term there are no disciplines offered, so this semester is completely dedicated to internships.

Thus, the undergraduate curriculum favors student mobility and international professional experience.

Undergraduate students have three special international programs to choose from for their global career development: the IBEA program, the double degree with ESSEC Business School and with ESCP Europe.

These programs enrich the student's education and reinforce its worldwide position of excellence in teaching and research in General Administration.

Organizational Experiences - Field Project

In 2015, EBAPE's General Administration graduation began the Field Project, a project whose main objective is to provide 3rd and 4th term students with their first professional experience within a public, private or non-governmental organization.

Over the years, the projects evolved and the Field Project ceased to be a complementary activity and became a mandatory curricular component of the course, now entitled Organizational Experiences.

The essence of the project continues, it is an activity aimed at 4th term students, providing their first experience in the organizational environment. Students are immersed for a given period in organizations, facing real challenges, engaged in the search for the resolution of management issues.

When studying Organizational Experience, the student will have the opportunity to apply the theoretical framework learned in different disciplines, articulating theory and practice, through confrontation with real situations, which will help him to develop a set of essential skills for his performance as an administrator.

Partnership and internships

The undergraduate student in Administration has access to a structured curriculum and specialized departments that provide real experiences in prominent organizations from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.
