About the Course:
FGV’s International Relations course was designed to transform the professional horizon of students interested in pursuing a global career. It is a program designed to equip students with the skills and competencies needed to work in international organizations, investment banks, non-governmental organizations, political risk consultancies, multinational corporations, media and communications, as well as prepare them for applied research careers.
Throughout the course, students will be exposed to a range of areas of study within International Relations, such as geopolitics and diplomacy, conflicts and humanitarian crises, global economics and finance, international cooperation and development, negotiation techniques in multicultural contexts, policy evaluation, and Big Data.
From the very beginning of the course, students are prepared for a diverse range of global careers in the professional workplace. They acquire a repertoire of concepts, methods and techniques to offer consultancy, make qualified analyses of political and economic scenarios, manage complex international projects, write grant applications, compose op-eds for the press, produce and manage large databases, interpret statistics and draw negotiation strategies. At the end of the course, graduates are qualified to perform these tasks with proficiency in multicultural and multilingual environments. Our role is to ensure that all graduates have the tools they need to make the best professional choices and build their own productive and creative trajectory.
Students have the possibility of engaging in exchange, immersion and volunteering programs in Brazil and abroad, giving them real-life experience in an international work environment. In order to prepare them for these experiences, a significant part of the program will be offered in English. Nonetheless, students are expected to be proficient in Portuguese, as many of the academic and extracurricular activities will be held in this language.
Our faculty has training in world-renowned institutions and extensive experience in applied research. In addition to academic excellence, the faculty is characterized by professional experience and connections with the job market, including international organizations, risk analysis consultancies and government agencies, among others.
