Event held to celebrate FGV EBAPE’s 70th anniversary
Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (FGV EBAPE) held an event to celebrate its 70th anniversary on December 15, at the FGV Cultural Center. The ceremony brought together students, alumni, professors and employees to celebrate the school’s tradition of innovating in administration education and research.
The event began with a speech by the president of FGV, Carlos Ivan Simonsen Leal. He noted that FGV EBAPE was the original reason for FGV’s creation and he stressed the school’s importance to public administration in Brazil.
In turn, the dean of FGV EBAPE, Professor Flávio Vasconcelos, noted that the school created the first public administration undergraduate course in Latin America and the first master’s in administration in Brazil.
Professor Roberto Pimenta, the head of FGV EBAPE’s Center for Academic Education and Research, thanked all the school’s partners, students, employees, professors and all other people who have contributed to its work.
During the event, FGV EBAPE’s communication and Alumni Network coordinator, Darliny Amorim, presented a video showing key milestones in the school’s history.

The time capsule will be opened in 2027.
FGV's president handed out a memento to the school’s past deans, Professors Paulo Roberto Motta, Armando Cunha and Bianor Cavalcanti, and thanked them for their work.
