2018 retrospective: FGV consolidates leadership in main educational indicators and rankings

Many of the indexes and rankings that attest to the excellence of Fundação Getulio Vargas when it comes to teaching and research were published in the last months of 2018. FGV’s Schools have excelled once again, achieving, in their majority, the maximum score.

The General Course Index (IGC 2017), released by the Ministry of Education, ranks FGV’s Schools in the first places among all higher education institutions in the country. For the third year in a row, FGV’s Brazilian School of Economics and Finance (EPGE) remained in the lead, with FGV’s São Paulo School of Economics (EESP) as the runner up and FGV’s School of Social Sciences (CPDOC) ranking third. FGV’s Sao Paulo School of Business Administration (EAESP), Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE), Sao Paulo Law School (Direito SP) and School of Applied Mathematics (EMAp) also scored 5. FGV’s Rio de Janeiro Law School (Direito Rio) obtained a strong result, scoring 4 in the evaluation. The undergraduate courses also stood out in the annual assessment of the Student Guide magazine. All of them received the maximum five-star score.

EPGE, which ranked first in the IGC for the third year in a row and achieved five stars in the Student Guide, also stood out in the Brazilian Association of Graduate Programs in Economics (ANPEC) exam. For the second year in a row, the School had a student rank first in the exam, considered one of the most difficult and competitive in the country. In addition to Pedro Feijó de Moraes, who achieved the highest score in the exam, three other EPGE students were in the top 10. In the National Student Performance Exam (ENADE), all Schools stood out; EMAp earned a perfect score (5) in its first exam. CPDOC’s undergraduate courses were among the best in the country, scoring 4.

Other recognition that should be highlighted: FGV was voted one of the institutions that best communicates with journalists, according to the award given by the Center for Communication Studies (CECOM) and the Negócios da Comunicação magazine. FGV Online won the Top of Mind HR award in the distance learning (EaD) category for the 13th consecutive year. FGV, through its Academic Records Office (SRA), also achieved the Socially Responsible Institution seal.

In addition, FGV was considered one of the most outstanding institutions for Brazilians in the last five decades in the education category, according to a survey by Veja magazine. FGV Executive Education received the “Marco Maciel Award: Ethics and Transparency in the relation between Public and Private”, in the educational institutions category from the Brazilian Association of Institutional and Government Relations (ABRIG).
