FGV teams up with renowned Asian Business School
FGV’s Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE) signed an agreement with the Singapore Management University, which will allow its undergraduate students to attend the institution through exchange programs. Considered one of the top three universities in Singapore, the SMU is also one of the youngest, having opened its doors in 1999. Despite the short amount of time since it began its activities, the university is already internationally known for its world-class research and unique education methods.
SMU’s mission is to foster cutting-edge research with global impact and train leaders with a broad, creative and venturing profile for the economy based on knowledge. The SMU is modeled after the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, with which the institution has a partnership since 1999, placing the former Vice Dean of Wharton as the Dean of SMU for a period of six years.
SMU has around 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students across six schools: the School of Accounting, the Lee Kong Chian School of Business, the School of Economics, the School of Information Systems, the Law School, and the School of Social Sciences. SMU offers a wide range of bachelor’s, master’s and PhD programs across all six schools’ disciplinary areas, as well as different combinations between these areas.
Lee Kong Chian School of Business (LKCSB) is one of the world’s leading business schools in Asia. It is one of the youngest institutions in the world to receive the triple-crown accreditation from AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS, offering undergraduate, master’s (MBA and EMBA) and PhD programs.
