MPP and MPA Programs

Fundação Getúlio Vargas (FGV), Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE)

Program Comparison Highlights

Institutional Structure: The Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE), is an academic unit of Fundação Getúlio Vargas, a Brazilian higher education institution founded in 1944.

Curriculum Design: The FGV MPA is a 12 one-semester-course-equivalent program which include a project (dissertation, case study or diagnosis and analysis report). Typical students take about 52% of their course work in subjects that we classify as Tools and Skills or Management Functions and almost none of their study is in economic or quantitative courses. This places the FGV MPA in the "low course requirement, less economic/quantitative, context/policy leaning" curriculum type, along with such programs as the Warwick MPP and the Hong Kong MPA. FGV has a an average number of elective courses taught within the school.

Professional Program Features: The program website does not contain much information on professional program features, although it should be noted that the program is aimed at experienced professionals in ongoing positions.
