The School of Business Administration (or Escola de Administração de Empresas de São Paulo of Fundação Getulio Vargas), where the Latam Term is embedded, is one of the ten FGV Schools. FGV EAESP has had a long tradition of preparing leaders for academia, businesses, government, and non-profit organizations, offering business management and public administration undergraduate and graduate programs. The School currently has 3'700 students, 245 faculty members, 100 employees, and over 40'000 alumni.
FGV EAESP is a leading research institution in Brazil. The School’s 21 Applied Research Centers couple academia with practice which keeps a constant flow of knowledge between both. FGV EAESP’s leadership position is demonstrated by the renowned quality of its published articles, its doctoral programs, and its numerous local and international collaboration and partnership agreements. In addition to undergraduate studies, the School offers a broad range of programs aimed at faculty and researchers, preparing professionals at different points of their careers. They include Pre-experience Masters, Specialized Masters, MBAs, and Doctorates. With the operational support of FGV’s Institute for Educational Development (IDE), FGV EAESP also offers short-, medium-, and long-term programs for managers and executives.
FGV EAESP is situated at the heart of São Paulo’s business and financial district and, therefore, well connected to the decision-making hubs of the city. Yet, the campus feels like an oasis amidst the buzzing center. FGV EAESP is easily reachable by public transport and closely located to some of the main libraries, theaters, parks, and other cultural attractions. The main building offers students access to sports facilities, libraries, auditoriums, mensa, and a fully equipped informatics lab.
FGV EAESP is Brazil’s most international school, thanks to over 100 partnerships with learning institutions in five continents and 23 double-degree agreements. FGV EAESP was the first school in Brazil to earn the three most important international accreditations in business (AACSB in 2000, EQUIS in 2001, and AMBA in 2004). HSG and FGV have a longstanding relationship that encompasses collaborations for the exchange of Bachelor and master students, faculty, and agreements for the double degree masters. The Latam Term consolidates this relationship and takes it a step further, embedding one full semester of HSG Bachelor studies at the partner university.
