FGV Schools receive top marks in 2017 Brazilian Student Guide

The undergraduate courses of six FGV schools got top marks in the annual review of the magazine, published by Editora Abril.

FGV stands out in the 2017 Brazilian Student Guide.  The undergraduate courses of six FGV schools got top marks in the annual review of the magazine, published by Editora Abril. The survey awarded five stars to the following courses: Administration (Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE)), Business Administration (Sao Paulo School of Business Administration (EAESP)), Law (Sao Paulo Law School (Direito SP) and Rio de Janeiro Law School (Direito Rio)); Economics (EPGE Brazilian School of Economics and Finance (EPGE)), and Social Sciences (School of Social Sciences (CPDOC)). The Public Administration (EAESP) course, reviewed for the first time in 2017, also got a top score. 

FGV’s other undergraduate courses were also acknowledged for their excellence. The Applied Mathematics course of School of Applied Mathematics (EMAp) was reviewed by the Student Guide for the first time, receiving four stars. The same mark was given to the Economics course of Sao Paulo School of Economics (EESP). This result reinforces the continuous work of FGV’s schools to prepare their students, combining strength, experience, and innovation to an excellent faculty.

Currently in its 27th edition, the Student Guide aims to guide those interested in starting an undergraduate course, presenting updated information about institutions, job market, and careers. The survey is held annually by means of a poll with more than 11,000 experts – course coordinators, department heads, and professors – who grade the courses from poor to excellent (one to five).

The experts review each course based on three aspects – pedagogic project, faculty, and infrastructure –, grading each one. The final grade for each course is the average of the three plus the incorporation of the last two reviews, assigning different weights to each year.

Regarded as one of the main sources of guidance for undergraduate candidates in Brazil, the publication with the complete list of reviewed courses will be on newsstands on October 16 this year.
