As part of its internationalization strategy, the School strives to ensure that all its students become fluent in English, thus enabling them to have easy access to programs outside Brazil, while also endowing them with a comparative advantage in the business and academic job markets. Consequently, FGV EBAPE has stepped up its efforts to sign academic partnership agreements with leading institutions all over the world, in addition to building up even closer links with its current partners.
This academic cooperation takes place in many different ways, including student exchange agreements, staff exchange, faculty exchange, cooperative research projects, short international modules for professional Master’s students, double degree programs and other incentives for student mobility.
The Exchange Program is open to all students seeking an international experience, offering great opportunities to study abroad while paying the usual monthly fee to EBAPE, with no additional outlays or extra expenses at the host institution.
Although EBAPE recommends students for the International Exchange Program, final acceptance is decided by the host institutions.
At undergraduate level, requests must be forwarded to the Undergraduate Program Office, which will assist students to sign up for courses that contribute to their academic plans, in the area of management.
For Master’s Degrees, courses taken are normally ranked as electives, and study plans must be submitted to the appropriate program office.
Expenses such as visa application fees, airfares, housing, food, international health insurance, and personal outlays are the student’s responsibility.
Applying for student visas is the responsibility of the students, and information on the required documentation must be obtained from the consulate or embassy of the country of the host institution. This information should be obtained as soon as possible, so that the necessary steps may be taken well in advance, to avoid unnecessary delays.
