“My career goal is to be a researcher and professor at a well-respected school. To do so, I do have not the slightest doubt that studying for my PhD at the FGV/EBAPE was the best decision I could have taken. These four years of full-time studies have prepared me to conduct top-quality research projects, due to many factors. The first is the focus on methodology, which is very strong. The second is the quality of the professors, who are excellent researchers. They are always eager to teach us and work closely with their students in the classroom and elsewhere. The third point is the structure provided by the FGV/EBAPE, which offered me the chance to work with several research projects, showing me the practical side of how to handle studies. And the fourth aspect is the class, which is very cooperative, ensuring that we learn plenty from one another. Finally, FGV/EBAPE offered me the chance to spend time at the University of British Columbia in Canada, which was extremely enriching for my training. So I recommend the FGV/EBAPE to everyone like me who dreams of a successful academic career.”
