The Undergraduate Program in Public and Business Administration is a four-year program that offers interdisciplinary training to prepare professionals to work in public and private institutions in the areas of finance, marketing, technology management, people management, and consumer behavior.
FGV EBAPE students are qualified to work in different segments, through theoretical and practical classes that provide knowledge of Public and Business Administration. Due to this multidisciplinary nature, students that complete the program earn a bachelor’s degree in both areas, which increases their chances of employment.
In addition to a curriculum highly suited to the national and international labor market, FGV EBAPE’s undergraduate program offers other possibilities for academic and professional development, such as the Students Representative Council (DAA), the junior enterprise FGV JR, the LAB, the Atlética FGV and the FGV+.

There are no prerequisites for the courses in the curriculum. They are offered in an intensive and full-time model within a month. The students are submitted to only one exam at the end of the course, reducing the time between evaluations.
The internship may be completed in any part of the world and is carried out during a period where the student is not attending courses. This characteristic values the academic and the professional experience, associated not only with the personal desire to learn but with the critical view of the organization’s space and need, considering the socio-economic context. The professional experience starts with the Field Project, where the students work in a team to analyze and propose solutions to a real problem of a partner organization, and culminates with the full-time curricular internship in an organization in any Brazilian city or around the world. During this period the student is focused on the activities in the organization, with no classes or exams. It represents the transition from academic to professional life.
The program stimulates the development of communication and argumentation skills, as well as critical-analytical thinking based on mathematical rationality to solve problems in complex environments. Students are stimulated through mathematical and statistical models throughout the courses.
At the same time, students are required to improve their language skills, emphasizing constant dialogue, arguments, counterarguments, knowing how to communicate and expose ideas and thoughts. In this context, students are encouraged to achieve fluency in English.
