Undergraduate program[edit]

Located at the headquarters of the foundation, the undergraduate program of EBAPE is recognized as one of the best business schools of Brazil and even Latin America, although being part of a great and famous university, it is a school for a very restricted number of students. The school offers only 50 seats per year and currently has less than 400 students.
Despite the little number of students, EBAPE is one of the few schools of Brazil that has about 50 full-time professors.
All professors are PhDs and virtually all recently graduated students are already employed.[1]

The program is divided into two cycles. The first two years constitute the Basic Management Cycle comprises courses that are the core issues and concepts central to the formation of the administrator. Matters concerning the area of mathematics develop the habit of logical and objective.

During the past two years that comprise the Professional Cycle, that provides students with the tools and expertise related to business administration and public policy. The disciplines to be taught in the last four semesters of course complement the knowledge acquired in Basic Cycle. The Professional Cycle also features two distinct emphases in Public Administration and Business Administration. The student, upon entering the 7th period, should choose which branch he would like to take to further the studies.

The college has strong rules of conduct and behavior, where no student or employee can enter the building dressed in shorts or slippers. It also hardly supports festivals or sporting events.
