From October 1st to 9th, FGV EBAPE held the 2nd edition of the Amazon Immersion Experience, a program linked to the Master in Management (MiM) sustainability track that brings management practices in sustainable development, initiatives of entrepreneurship and experience in issues focused on topics such as ESG and leadership. 

19 students from Germany, Norway, the United States, Brazil, China, Poland, Norway and Morocco participated in the visits. The young group is composed of MiM students, exchange students from partner schools, Double degree students in partnership with Católica Lisbon and undergraduate students from the International Business Education Alliance (IBEA). 

The immersion included visits to the Guamá Science and Technology Park (PCT); to the CIMAM - Integrated Environmental Monitoring Center; the Ecoparque Natura – Sociobiodiversity Innovation Center; the Cofruta Cooperative; Manioca, the cachaça factory Meu Garoto; Alunorte/Hydro; the Utinga Park; Environmental Police and Ilha do Combu, in addition, the group could follow cultural activities of the Cirio de Nazaré. 

Accompanying the group of students were the Head of the Master´s in Management (MiM) and the Master´s in Business Management (MEX) programs, professor Augusto Sales; the Head of International Programs, professor Juliana Mansur; and the Academic Supervisor of MEX and MiM programs, Anderson Ricci. 

One of the visits was highlighted on the news portal – Agência Pará. According to the publication, the group of students had access to the Guamá Science and Technology Park (PCT) and was able to visit the Amazon Bioactive Compounds Valorization Center, research and services that enable quality control in products of plant origin in the areas of food science and technology, pharmaceuticals, chemistry, biotechnology, cosmetology. In addition, the young goup also visited the Amazon Energy Efficiency Center of Excellence (CEAMAZON), which highlighted the potential for research and services aimed at addressing energy efficiency issues in the areas of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, engineering chemistry and architecture. 


For the MIM student, Pedro Henrique Abad, “tradition gave me access to sustainable business models and local culture. During the visits, I was able to see that companies are capable to balance the need to generate revenue while acting in environmental and additional conversations with generating income for the local community. The Cachaça factory Meu Garoto and Manioca, for example, sells its products using typical fruits from the region and without causing damage to the ecosystem. During a visit to the Natura Innovation Center we were able to understand processes that promote the reduction of inputs without impacting the environment, in addition to actions to encourage the local economy”, he adds. 

“The MiM program works as a career accelerator, leveraging students’ potential and providing a substantial transformation in their lives. Going through the program and the "Amazon Experience" equips students with a global vision and advanced management skills, preparing them to face complex challenges in the business world and contribute significantly to society”, highlights professor Augusto Sales. 


The Master in Management is a passport for those who want to achieve exceptional careers in management, obtaining an agile and excellent education. With a shorter duration and, at the same time, intensive learning, the course is ideal for students who are about to obtain a Bachelor's degree or have graduated approximately three years ago, with little or no work experience. 

MiM has na open selection process until February 29th. Access the website.
