The curriculum of the Undergraduate Program in Public and Business Administration strengthens FGV EBAPE’s culture of internationalization. The School has partnerships with more than 60 of the world’s most prestigious public and business administration schools.

Educational exchanges

FGV EBAPE offers students the opportunity to spend at least one semester at one of the international partner schools. The students are prepared to participate in the exchange since the beginning of the program. English proficiency is critical for undergraduate students.

From the second year of the undergraduate program, all classes in the Marketing component area are taught in English. From the third year to the end of the course, all classes are taught in English.

The Multicultural Experience is a compulsory component area, and it includes an international educational exchange in the third year of the program as a central part of the course. All students are expected to attend classes abroad at one of FGV EBAPE’s international partner schools.

In the final year of the program, students are encouraged to start internships with the potential to enable international careers in global organizations. During the eighth semester of the program, there are no courses scheduled, so it is entirely devoted to internships. The curriculum, therefore, facilitates and encourages students’ international educational and professional experience;

Undergraduate students have three special international programs to choose from to develop their global career: the IBEA program, and the double degree with either ESSEC Business School or ESCP Europe.

These programs enrich student education and strengthen the School’s position of excellence in business education and research worldwide.
