The Academic Graduate Studies in Administration Program at the FGV-EBAPE consists of the MSc and PhD in Administration.  Closely connected, these courses share the same values and principles.

The main purpose of the MSc program is to prepare students for PhDs (at FGV/EBAPE or some other distinguished institution in Brazil or elsewhere in the world) or for the job market.

The main purpose of the PhD program is to prepare students for academic careers as research professors at universities or other academic institutions in Brazil or abroad.

The MSc & the PhD  programs offer methodological and conceptual training  equivalent to those provided by its international peers, as well as knowledge and access tailored to the many different contexts of the reality in Brazil.  Strong emphasis is given  to the generation and dissemination of high quality research through publication papers in leading journals in the field of administration and related areas.


The program is proud of adopting an interdisciplinary approach, welcoming students with undergraduate or Master’s Degrees in Administration or related areas such as economics, engineering, computer science, psychology, neuroscience, political science, sociology, accounting science, statistics and applied mathematics, among others.

The Academic MSc program is 21-months long and the PhD progam is 48-months long.

Both programs are full-time, with students expected to spend time at the school every day throughout the duration of the program, participating in classroom activities, research projects, seminars and discussions, which shapes and strengthens  the academic culture of the program. The MSc and PhD Students have an exclusive work environment. 

Scholarship will be granted to all participants and renewing the scholarship will depend on the academic performance of the student and full-time dedication. 


The MSc and PhD programs are taught in English.  Consequently, students must be able to read, write, understand and speak English.  The MSc dissertation must also be written in English, as well as the conceptual paper, the PhD dissertation proposal and the final document, unless otherwise agreed between advisors and students.
