Consisting only of PhDs, the Faculty is noteworthy for its high level of academic excellence, participating in major congresses in research projects. Its members publish papers in Brazilian and international journals, while also coordinating projects that are benchmarks for technical and scientific output.
Students may access the main databases and indexing services either at the FGV or remotely, including: Portal de Periódicos Capes, JSTOR, Ebsco, West Law, Heinon-line, Vlex, Lexis Nexis, International Encyclopedia of Social & Behavioral Science (Science Direct), Proquest Dissertations & Theses, Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg, Economática, Compustat Global, Compustat North America and also the Dicionário Houaiss Portuguese dictionary and the CAPES WEB TV channel that broadcasts news on University campi and offers training to the CAPES Periodicals Portal users.
In addition to offering access to major Brazilian and international databases, the FGV/EBAPE also provides its students and professors with exclusive subscriptions to two major databases: Harvard Business School (HBS) and the Financial Times (FT). The former offers access to all materials produced by this publisher and other associated clearing houses (case studies, teaching notes, papers, simulations, on-line courses, chapters etc.) for professors and students. The latter provides digital access to the full content of this highly-respected international business newspaper, including case studies. The use of participant-centered active methods (case studies, simulations) is strongly encouraged by the School, particularly for Professional Master’s degrees.
The FGV/EBAPE has been awarded international certification by the European Foundation for Management Development (EQUIS/EFMD) which is an international entity that evaluates business schools, awarded only to institutions that comply with extremely stringent international teaching and research quality standards; it is also certified by the International Commission on Accreditation of Public Administration Education and Training (ICAPA) which is the institution in charge of accreditation for public administration training and education programs, compliant with the directives issued by the Board of the International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA).
Always attuned to new public administration challenges and steered by academic rigor, this program is also noteworthy for encouraging its students to pursue exchanges with teaching and research institutions that partner with the FGV/EBAPE through academic papers in periodicals in this field, as well as supporting attendance at international and Brazilian congresses.
