Program Features

English is the primary language of the program, for both learning activities and student assignments. Graduate students from all over the world are admitted to the courses, thus providing a cross-cultural environment and broadening the international experience.

MPGI has two possible tracks:

  1. Intensive: On this track, the student studies six months at FGV/EAESP, and six months in one of the other 29 universities linked to the CEMS Alliance (5th best international master’s degree according to the Financial Times Ranking) and has another six months to finish the master thesis. After completing the program, the student receives a Master’s Degree from FGV/EAESP and the CEMS certification.
  2. Regular: On this track, the student studies one year at FGV/EAESP and one year in one or two of the partner universities. By the end of the two years, the student must present the master thesis. After completing the program, the student receives a Master’s Degree from FGV/EAESP and a Master’s Degree from the partner institution or the CEMS certification. 

For both of the tracks, the student must attend a minimum of 384 class hours. For the Regular track, depending on the partner institution, the student must attend more hours. In both tracks, the student must attend three mandatory courses (Applied Research Methodology, Strategy in an International Perspective and Global Management Practice) and at least 13 elective courses.

In both modes, the student must write a master thesis. The thesis may be a dissertation, a consulting project, a case study or a case of education. We give priority to thesis with applicability in the business world.
