Internationalization at FGV EBAPE
FGV EBAPE’s internationalization effort is one of its competitive advantages. The school is recognized as a global school of public and business administration in Latin America by the leading global accreditation institutions specialized in business schools (AACSB, EQUIS, ICAPA).
FGV EBAPE meets international standards of academic excellence. It has partnerships with more than 50 international schools and an active presence in international collaboration networks (SIGMA Alliance, IBEA, CLADEA, PRME, NASPAA, NIBS).
Students from undergraduate and graduate programs can take advantage of the many international opportunities offered at FGV EBAPE, from the possibility of traveling across four continents in undergraduate studies through the IBEA program (International Business Education Alliance) to attending master’s (academic and professional) and PhD programs taught 100% in English.
The school has a highly internationalized faculty used to publish cutting-edge research in leading international journals. FGV EBAPE has received dozens of visiting professors from international schools in recent years.
Internationalization is a strategy to prepare high-level professionals to work in different areas and organizations in Brazil and worldwide. In addition, it broadens horizons and trains outstanding leaders, prepared for the challenges of a global, multicultural, diverse, and interconnected market.
Over 80% of the professors have an international background, extensive teaching experience abroad, and high-level publications in leading global journals.
