For the third year in row, one of the best business administration schools in Brazil

Once again, the Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (FGV / EBAPE) has been ranked one of the best Business Administration Schools in Brazil, and is in top of the list of post-secondary education institutions, based on data from the IGC (General Course Index), from the Ministry of Education (MEC). FGV/EBAPE is among a select group of schools that achieved the highest score of 5 (five), which is the maximum score.

School director, professor Flavio Vasconcelos, states that these results reflect a team effort: "Our repeated success reflects the team’s strategic efforts on behalf of all students, teachers, technical and administrative staff, and managers of the EBAPE. The focus is always on providing quality teaching and research. This stems from the overall mission of EBAPE and FGV, which strives to contribute to the economic and social development of Brazil."

The IGC (General Course Indicator) is a quality indicator that evaluates post-secondary education institutions and grades colleges, university centers and universities, assessing undergraduate and graduate courses (Master’s and PhD). The scores are calculated in the year following the ENADE assessment in each area, and includes an evaluation of student performance, teaching staff, infrastructure, didactic and pedagogical resources and other tools, based on the CONAES (the Commission for the Evaluation of Higher Education) guidelines.
