About the Course: 

FGV EAESP’s undergraduate business administration course is aimed at students who plan to go far and make a positive impact on the world. Students will find resources and tools to play a leading role in transforming not just companies, but also the economy and society as a whole.



This undergraduate course, created in 1954, has continually evolved to maintain its innovative essence in line with Brazil’s context.

Students gain a solid education, giving them a broad vision as a manager and citizen, in accordance with the demands of the contemporary world and the concerns of new generations, based on the principles of ethics, sustainability, entrepreneurship, systemic vision and critical thinking.

FGV EAESP business administration course graduates are prepared for their professional career and not just for their first job.

The majority of alumni find a job within two months of graduating.

The school’s alumni hold key positions in the job market, at organizations in all sectors and of all sizes.

FGV EAESP is one of the world’s most prestigious business schools. Since 2004, it has had three of the foremost international accreditations. Just 82 of the world’s 14,000 business schools have this triple accreditation.

FGV upholds standards of excellence in education, research and extension work.

The undergraduate business administration course is available in Day or Day-English (four years) and Evening (five years) modalities for students who plan to work during the day or accelerate their experience through internships.

In the Day-English modality, all mandatory subjects are taught in English, as well as many of the optional subjects. This means greater contact with the English language and the possibility to network with non-Brazilian students, preparing students for international opportunities.

Dual diploma

Through an internal selection process, students can spend some semesters in the United States, France, Italy or Germany, at FGV EAESP’s partner institutions. Successful candidates can choose from between the universities listed below, studying during the indicated periods, and obtaining a diploma from both institutions when they graduate. All the fees are paid in Brazil, except in the case of HEC, in which one year’s fees are paid at this university and students obtain a master’s degree. 

Double degree

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. 

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. For more information, click here.

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