FGV hosts Latin American module of International Executive MBA
FGV?s School of Public and Business Administration (FGV/EBAPE) hosted another edition of the International Masters in Management (IMM) program, and organized a one-week module in Rio de Janeiro. Between September 27 and October 3, the 16 executives were in Brazil to participate in one of the five modules offered by the program, which lasts 20 months and has five two-week trips to different countries from four continents.In this intensive module, students took classes with professors from partner schools of the IMM consortium on finance and marketing, and attended a lecture with Fabiano Gallindo, from FIRJAN, on financing options for companies linked to the creative economy. Participants also had the opportunity to see the works at Porto Maravilha, Rio?s art museum ? MAR, and talk to professionals from the companies that make up the Coletivo do Porto, located in Rio?s Criativo do Porto district.For EBAPE?s International Relations manager, Mônica Balanda, the continued success of IMM is due not only to its main feature, which is to be fully international, but also to a robust program prepared by members of a faculty of highly respected international schools. ?The program is truly international because of the diversity and quality of participants and professors. Its excellence was proven recently, when the IMM was named best international MBA program in Latin America, according to the Executive MBA Ranking 2015 of The Economist?, she said.With more than 20 years of existence, the IMM is an international Executive MBA program, the result of a partnership among five major business schools: Krannert Graduate School of Management, from Purdue University (from the US), Tias School of Business e Society, based at Tilburg University (from Holland), CEU Business School (from Hungary), Tianjin University (from China) and EBAPE (from Brazil). The course has an international accreditation from AACSB International (Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business) and is aimed at experienced professionals who seek a master's degree in business administration while keeping their job responsibilities.
