Presidency

A word from the president.

An important model in education both in Brazil and abroad for its undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as its practical initiatives, the Getulio Vargas Foundation is dedicated, heart and mind, to fostering national development. Hence, as a mecca of excellence, our goal is to continuously operate as an innovative institution for the benefit of both our students and society in general. FGV is an institution that explores the world in search of modernity. We seek out that which might be used and adapted to promote the country’s growth and make it a more just and evolved nation.

Thus, out of its own reflections, and understanding the changes brought about by the winds of globalization, FGV establishes new paradigms for improvement and submits them to its clientele, which includes executives in the public and private sectors, professionals and young students in search of knowledge. Our school programs and activities take into consideration the way businesses evolve, as well as their ever changing demand for professional skills and expertise.

Our academic excellence is comparable to that of the world’s most prestigious learning institutions, many of which have exchange agreements with us. At Getulio Vargas Foundation, our education horizon extends beyond the boundaries of one’s vast imagination.

From its earliest days, FGV’s activities have focused on strategic areas of national life, such as public administration, economics, history, political science and law. The field of public administration is essential not only to reinforce a positive concept of State bureaucracy but also to ensure that Brazil becomes a great democracy.

The study of economics is crucial to the country’s development: we will never be a great nation until our economy is prosperous. This requires understanding and designing new mechanisms that take into account social and technological complexities as well as market structures, and that can only be accomplished through the creation of sophisticated models elaborated through the study and development of technologies and aptness in this area. Likewise, we have embraced the law field upon realizing its need for innovation, seeing that our interdisciplinary approach could contribute to this end. The same holds true in the political science and history fields.

FGV also intends to amplify the mathematical content of all our social sciences programs, not only at the undergraduate and graduate levels, but also in the development of applied research projects. This innovative project aiming to foster a deeper understanding of applied mathematics is already in the developing stages.

FGV’s reputation as a unique institution – one which has paved the way through so many projects in the area of post secondary education, along with programs designed to assist businesses as well as direct and indirect public administration organs – can be attributed to the endless wellspring of talent found in its directors, professors, students and staff. As the alma mater of illustrious personalities – state ministers, presidents, directors of private and state-run enterprises, as well as countless noteworthy businesspersons and executives –, FGV’s evolution also owes to the efforts and dedication of its competent faculty and zealous staff, so well deserving of our recognition. That is to say that, from the early days of its foundation in 1944, this institution was never limited to its physical space, buildings and programs alone.

It is necessary to point out how important it is that FGV preserves its hallmark independence and plurality of views. The foundation’s non-partisan approach does not prevent it from advancing policies and ideals that will help lead the country to progress and economic and social well-being.
