FGV’s distance undergraduate technology courses among best in Brazil, according to Education Ministry
FGV’s distance undergraduate technology courses are among the best in the country. This is one of the findings of the 2018 Preliminary Course Concept Index (CPC), a quality indicator produced by the Brazilian Education Ministry’s National Institute for Educational Studies and Research (INEP). The ranking, released on December 19, evaluates undergraduate courses across the country.
INEP gave the maximum score to four undergraduate technology courses run by the FGV´s Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (FGV EBAPE), on the subjects of Marketing Technology, Commercial Management, Management Processes and Public Management. The school’s Financial Management course was also rated highly, getting a score of 4.
CPC scores are calculated and divulged the year after each National Student Performance Exam (ENADE). They are based on students’ performance, the value added by the education process and inputs related to supply conditions (faculty, infrastructure and educational resources), in line with technical guidelines approved by the National Higher Education Evaluation Commission (Conaes).
The average of CPC scores in the last three years plus scores given the Education Ministry’s graduate education support agency, CAPES, for master’s and PhD courses (both weighted in line with the number of students) make up the General Course Index (IGC), an indicator that evaluates higher education institutions. FGV also stands out in this index. All FGV schools evaluated by INEP received the maximum score of 5 in the 2018 IGC results, which were also disclosed at the end of last year.
According to the head of FGV EBAPE’s Undergraduate Education Center, Professor Henrique Heidtmann Neto, who is responsible for managing the school’s undergraduate technology courses and bachelor degrees, “This success is due to the clear design of our strategy, which is based on FGV’s mission, and the dedication of our whole team, focused on the learning processes of students at our school.”
