FGV professors take office at the Brazilian Academy of Administration Sciences
Five professors from FGV's School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE) will take office today at the Brazilian Academy of Administration Sciences (ABCA): Alexandre Linhares, Alketa Peci, the vice director of the School, Álvaro Bruno Cyrino, the director Flávio Carvalho de Vasconcelos and FGV's director of Academic Integration, Antonio Araújo Freitas.
Flávio Vasconcelos highlights the importance of being part of an academy whose objective is the development and dissemination of knowledge in the Administration field. It is an honor for me to belong to ABCA, which already has as members names that are a reference in the Administration field, such as professors Armando Cunha and Paulo Motta. It will be an important experience, mainly because I'm the head of an educational institution that empowers people and develops research in the Administration field, he said.
ABCA was established on July 20, 1973 by 18 scholars - all eminent personalities linked to Administration studies in the country. ABCA's objectives include the study, research and development of technical and scientific knowledge, the dissemination of Administration sciences, and a stimulus to action and improvement of administrators. ABCA's main office is located in Rio de Janeiro.
The ceremony is open to the public and will take place today, July 18, at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium on the 12th floor at Fundação Getulio Vargas' headquarters also in Rio de Janeiro.
