Established in 1952, FGV EBAPE - Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration was the first School of Administration in all of Latin America. Situated in Brazil’s most famous city, Rio de Janeiro, the lively capital forms the second-largest market in Brazil, offering a huge advantage for corporate newcomers and fresh investments.

EBAPE prides itself on its diverse community and triple international accreditations from EQUIS-EFMD, AACSB and ICAPA, making it one of the country’s top institutions. In the latest General Index of Courses (IGC) released in December 2018 by the Ministry of Education (MEC), EBAPE also scored a maximum of five, reflecting the academic excellence of the institution.

All classrooms and amphitheaters are air-conditioned with state-of-the-art acoustics and advanced IT/AV facilities. There are also eight individual study rooms which can be used for mock interviews and group work.

As an EBAPE graduate, you’ll benefit from our dedicated alumni network. Created in 2014 and officially launched in 2015, the FGV/EBAPE Alumni Network is dedicated to the development of the EBAPE community as a whole, by encouraging the collaboration of values, ideas and interests between both former and current students. Doing so also allows EBAPE to follow the outstanding achievements of past students, as well as strengthen its ties with local and international organizations.  

The success of the FGV/EBAPE Alumni Network has seen it publish its own monthly newsletter which promotes ongoing projects involving both current and former students, as well as highlighting both their academic and professional achievements.

Home of football and carnival, Rio de Janeiro welcomes thousands of visitors from all over the world, thanks to its beautiful beaches and other attractions, including carnival, and the vivacious hospitality of its people. It’s no wonder the lively capital took 100th spot in the QS Best Student Cities 2018.
