Since its creation in 2007, the General Course Index (IGC), published annually by the Ministry of Education (MEC), has evaluated the quality of all undergraduate and Master’s and PhD Programs offered by every university, college, and free-standing higher education institution in Brazil, becoming the nation’s most important higher education rating tool. For three years running, EBAPE has been acknowledged as one of Brazil’s top Schools of Administration.

Moreover, the EBAPE BSc in Administration is acknowledged as a top-scoring Program in the National Student Performance Examination (ENADE).


In 2018, FGV EBAPE was awarded the AACSB seal by the most important accreditation body for business schools in the US. In Brazil, only three Brazilian business schools have this seal.

In addition to it, FGV EBAPE also holds the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) of the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) – an international business school rating agency – that is awarded only to institutions compliant with the most stringent international teaching and research quality standards.
