• The Sao Paulo School of Economics at FGV offers both a master's and a doctoral program. These programs aim to produce highly qualified professionals by means of rigorous training and involvement in research. The master’s program trains students who want to follow an academic career by pursuing a doctoral degree either in Brazil or abroad. The doctoral program trains students to be successful researchers. Both programs also provide excellent training to individuals who want to pursue a career in the private or public sectors.

      The master’s program has a maximum duration of ten academic quarters and the doctoral program has a maximum duration of eighteen academic quarters. The Graduate Program guidebook contains detailed information on the structure of the two programs.

      The school also offers two types of postdoctoral program, the PNPD/CAPES program and the internal program. The objective of these programs, which last from six to twelve months depending on their type, is to allow recent Ph.Ds. and researchers from other institutions to develop academic research in the school under the supervision of an FGV professor.


    • Outside Students

      Students from other educational institutions can enroll in courses offered by the Graduate Program subject to the approval of its coordinator. The students pay a fee per course enrolled. The coordinator of the Graduate Program can exempt individual students from the fee. Students from academic institutions with an exchange agreement with the Sao Paulo School of Economics are exempt from the fee.

      Questions and enrollment requests should be sent to cmcd.economia@fgv.br. The enrollment period for outside students coincides with the enrollment period for graduate students regularly enrolled in the school. Please refer to the school's academic calendar for enrollment periods in each school year.


    • The graduate programs at FGV EESP are free for full-time students.


      The school offers scholarships, either its own or from funding agencies (CAPES and CNPq), to master’s and doctoral students. The number of scholarships offered depends on the availability of school resources and scholarship quotas from the funding agencies. Each program has a separate process for allocating scholarships to students. The keeping of scholarships is subject to school rules and, in the case of scholarships from funding agencies, to the rules of the funding agency responsible for the scholarship.

      Besides scholarships, the school offers graduate students the opportunity to be teaching assistants for undergraduate and graduate courses. The school has an assistantship program specific for master’s students who want to be teaching assistants for undergraduate courses.

      Finally, the school also has a program that allows doctoral students to get involved with teaching activities in the undergraduate program.
