Our partner, Fundação Getulio Vargas, committed to Brazil’s development
Published on 02/11/2019
Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV), a NEOMA Business School partner, published the retrospective of the projects that it carried out in 2018, a lot of which have had a significant impact on Brazilian society.
Over the past year, FGV contributed to the country’s development with projects focusing on important, diverse subjects as such: the relationship between fish farming and the malaria epidemic in Amazonia, the launch of an “inflation portal” including an innovative feature that allows users to calculate the impact of price fluctuation on their respective budgets, or the increase of poverty and inequality in Brazil over the past four years.
Fundação Getulio Vargas’s Sao Paulo School of Business Administration (FGV EAESP) was founded in 1954, thanks to the joint efforts of the Brazilian government and business community, in order to train people to tackle the challenges Brazil was going through.
Since then, FGV EAESP has enhanced itself continuously to meet the demands of the academic and business communities, creating and implementing new courses and services in many different sectors.
FGV is a NEOMA Business School partner and has earned triple accreditation from EQUIS, AACSB, AMBA. We have the shared ambition to implement a prolific action-research policy that runs through society, businesses and our classes, contributing to teaching responsible managers.
We now both provide the opportunity for our students to pursue a dual degree with CESEM, as well as academic exchanges in the Master in Management programme. FGV is also one of the first partners in our brand-new initiative “Entrepreneurs without Borders”, which allows students to do their international exchange in the incubator of a partner university.
