AACSB International (AACSB)
In 2018, FGV EBAPE was awarded the AACSB seal by the most important accreditation body for business schools in the US. In Brazil, only three Brazilian business schools have this seal. Through its accreditation process, the AACSB seeks to promote engagement, accelerate innovation and increase the impact on executive education. This international recognition of AACSB's specialized accreditation for business programs at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels reinforces the excellence of FGV EBAPE's faculty body and its state-of-the-art teaching, as well as its commitment to the continuous improvement of all programs. Being an AACSB-accredited business school therefore means being part of a select group of schools with the highest standards of business education and management in the world and with a network of highly qualified students.
European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS-EFMD)
In 2014, FGV EBAPE was awarded the EQUIS accreditation seal by the European Quality Improvement System (EFMD), one of the most important business accreditations in the academic world. An EQUIS accreditation by the EFMD, an international body that evaluates management education institutions, represents an important international recognition of the quality of the School, and one that is only awarded to institutions that meet the most demanding international standards of teaching and research quality. In Brazil, only four institutions have this seal besides FGV EBAPE. EQUIS is awarded to universities and colleges that demonstrate a high degree of internationalization.
International Commission on Accreditation of Public Administration Education and Training (ICAPA)
FGV EBAPE’s Professional Master's in Public Administration (MAP) has been awarded the ICAPA Accreditation (International Commission on Accreditation of Public Administration Education). The ICAPA is responsible for accrediting public administration education and training programs in accordance with the rules of the Board of Directors of the International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA). The ICAPA accreditation process has the seal of the United Nations for very high standards of excellence in Public Administration Education and Training.
In addition to possessing AACSB, Equis and ICAPA accreditations, the School is also working towards obtaining the NASPAA (Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration) accreditation.
