FGV offers course for public and private sector managers
Fundação Getulio Vargas, through its International Affairs Division (FGV DINT), has just launched the fifth edition of its Latin American Program on Governability, Political Management and Public Management. The application deadline is June 22 and all the meetings will be online, via Zoom.
The Governability Program is designed to turn out highly qualified managers who can propose new ideas and policies that meet the needs of their cities and states. In the four previous editions in Brazil, 311 participants completed the program and 74 projects were approved.
This training involves seminars on governability, political management and public management. The goal is to develop managerial and leadership competencies in local government officials, technical teams at national and subnational levels, and members of civil society. The idea is to expand managers’ capacity to solve problems by generating consensus and proposing innovative and pertinent solutions, to contribute to the comprehensive development and governability of regions.
The program was developed by the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF) in response to the governmental challenges of Latin America. It is focused on building a critical mass of government officials interested in contributing to sustainable regional social and institutional development. The Development Bank of Latin America has been running this program since 2002 in 11 countries. Since 2015, FGV has been working with the program’s national coordinators in Brazil, in partnership with the bank.
The online classes will take place on Tuesdays from 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm and on Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm. There will be a one-week break between the different subjects. The classes are scheduled to begin on June 29 and to end on December 18, 2021.
