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 study diverse issues such as geopolitics and diplomacy, conflict and humanitarian crises, global economics and finance, international development cooperation, negotiation techniques in multicultural contexts, public 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 give advice, make qualified analyzes of the political and economic economy, manage projects, elaborate financial applications, write opinion articles for the press, produce and manage large databases, interpret statistics and undertake 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 undergoing 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 course subjects will be given in English.
Our professors have obtained their respective doctorates from leading universities worldwide.
