Exchange Programs Opportunities

Students can participate in Exchange Programs with more than 110 universities around the world.

Double Degree 

As of the fifth semester, the candidate can apply to simultaneously do a second course at FGV: law or economics. The student will only pay monthly tuition fees for one course.

FGV EAESP, the Sao Paulo School of Economics (FGV EESP) and the Sao Paulo Law School offer their students the possibility of a double degree, without the need to do another university entrance exam.

The main advantage is that students who pass the internal selection process can graduate in two of three courses (administration and economics, or administration and law, or economics and law) in a shorter space of time that if they were to take both courses consecutively. This is possible because of the proximity between the curricula offered by the schools, which feature some common subjects, promoting valuable dialogue between these areas of knowledge. Students only pay one set of monthly fees, even when they are enrolled for two degrees.


Public administrators’ activities are not restricted to governmental organizations. They work in areas such as education, health, culture, sport, sustainability, social entrepreneurship, consulting for public organizations, government relations, corporate social responsibility, and public utilities.

Public administrators have various professional options, starting with government careers, with growing pay potential. There is also a wide range of other options, such as managers and leaders of third sector organizations.

These professionals are also qualified to work with public policies and corporate foundations, besides advising national and international public organizations.


The course is strongly linked to professional practice, and particularly international aspects. There is a range of immersion activities at a variety of organizations. There are also fieldwork assignments and visits to government institutions in Brazil and other countries.

Students need to do a supervised internship in a developing country, in Latin America, a Portuguese-speaking Africa nation, China or India. In these internships, they work at NGOs, government organizations, international entities and/or study centers. Understanding new geopolitical realities is fundamental to students’ education.

Foreign candidates 

The course has a specific selection process for non-Brazilian candidates. This modality is composed of document analysis and an online interview. To participate, the candidate needs to be of a foreign nationality or be a Brazilian with dual nationality. The candidate must have taken the last four years of mandatory schooling at an education institution located outside Brazil and may not have a university degree.

National High School Exam (Enem)

In addition to University Entrance Exam, FGV also classifies applicants based on Enem scores, as provided by the National Institute of Educational Research of the Ministry of Education (INEP/MEC).
