EFMD Equis Accredited AACSB Accredited

The School

The first public administration school in Latin America, the Brazilian School of Public Administration at the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV/EBAP) was established in Rio de Janeiro on April 15, 1952 through a partnership between the United Nations (UN) and the FGV, in order to respond to demands for qualified professionals in this field.

In 2002, it was renamed the Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE), reflecting its activities in the private sector that had in fact been in place since it was founded. During these decades, it has firmed up its credibility and legitimacy through its astounding ability to provide top-tier knowledge to its students, ushering them into a production process ranked as excellent.

Location

Rio de Janeiro

Brazil’s most famous city, Rio de Janeiro is famed worldwide for its strong and promising economy. With a population of over fifteen million forming the second-largest market in Brazil, it offers advantageous conditions for corporate newcomers and appreciates fresh investments. But none of these benefits can outweigh its tourism potential: every year, it welcomes thousands of visitors from all over the world, drawn to its beautiful beaches and other natural attractions, including Carnival and above all the vivacious hospitality of its people.

Located in the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro, the FGV overlooks one of the world’s most famous and breathtaking views: the Sugarloaf. Inaugurated on December 20, 1968, its headquarters were designed by one of the most influential names in modern international architecture: Brazilian Oscar Niemeyer.

Close to long-established neighborhoods such as Copacabana, Flamengo, Humaitá, Jardim Botânico, Urca, Glória, and Catete, as well as the downtown CBD, it is surrounded by hostels and hotels, bars, malls and stores, subway stations and bus lines, as well as office buildings housing the head offices of major Brazilian and multinational corporations.
