The Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MEX) is a highly qualified program for top-level graduates from Brazil or abroad, who are working or who intend to work in the field of Business Administration. The course enables students to develop their entrepreneurial managerial capacity, provide consulting services, perform direction and management roles, and teach in schools and higher education institutions in the field of Administration.
Master in Management
In a world ever so competitive, young professionals are left to fend for themselves in attempts to learn what is needed and apply what is learned. Helping new graduates in this transition, the Master in Management offered at EBAPE/FGV is one of a kind in Brazil today. With a relatively short duration and intensive learning, students can be assured to leave with notable skills meant to set them apart in the job market. The MiM is the passport for students to reach exceptional business careers. The program provides a solid foundation in core management areas with a strong international perspective— students dive into the wonderful world of practical and theoretical knowledge. There are two possibilities:
- Regular Program Format: Classes and master thesis are done at EBAPE/FGV;
- Double Degree Program Format: Classes are done both at EBAPE/FGV and Católica-Lisbon School of Business and Economics (CLSBE) along with the master thesis.
To meet the growing demand characterized by strong professional performance in segments of the Brazilian public sector, FGV EBAPE launched, in 2012, the Master’s in Public Administration (MAP), in the professional mode. It consists of a Stricto Sensu graduate program, based on the guidelines of CAPES – Coordination for Improvement of Higher-Education Personnel of the Ministry of Education (Ordinance 080/98), which enables students to conciliate it with their professional activity and transfer knowledge to public organizations and society.
The Academic Graduate Studies in Administration Program at 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 MSc program is 21 months long.
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 PhD program is 48 months long.
