The program includes training in diplomacy and geopolitics, international economics, global finance, negotiation techniques in multicultural contexts, public policy evaluation methods and technological tools to manage large databases in online environments (Big Data).
“This is a very special moment for the entire FGV community”, said Celso Castro, Dean of the new school. “FGV has been a leader in the field of international relations for many years, and now we are taking a huge step to raise our status in this field of knowledge and help train a new generation of Brazilians qualified to pursue global careers”.
FGV’s new International Relations course offers a unique program in Brazil, focusing on state-of-the-art skills and competencies both regarding technology and knowledge. The course is suited for students interested in pursuing a global career. The program’s graduates are qualified to work in international organizations such as the UN, investment banks, non-governmental organizations, political risk consultancy companies, multinational corporations, communication and media companies, in addition to careers in applied research.
