About the IGC 2012
The IGC is an indicator of the quality of higher learning institutions that considers the quality of the undergraduate and graduate degree programs according to the score on the National Student Performance Exam (Enade) along with the separate ratings of the undergraduate and graduate programs.
Specifically for undergraduate programs, the CPC (preliminary course ranking) is used, while for graduate programs, the score assigned by the Office to Improve University Personnel (CAPES) of the MEC is used. The final result is expressed in continuous values (from 0 to 500) and in ranges (from 1 to 5). The overall institutional assessment is one of the components of the National System to Assess Higher Education (Sinaes), under the auspices of the MEC, for the purpose of improving the quality of higher education in Brazil.
There are two steps in the evaluation: a self-evaluation by the Internal Assessment Committee (CPA) and an external assessment by committees designated by INEP/MEC. FUCAPE obtained outstanding scores in all five categories, which cover the institutional mission, development plan, teaching policies, social responsibility and human resources policies for professors, researchers and administrative staff.
Founded 13 years ago, FUCAPE is respected nationally and internationally for its teaching and research.
Combining teaching of general theory with the most important current topics in the corporate world, FUCAPE works with the same model as business schools in other countries, such as the Harvard and London Business Schools. For this purpose, the institution invests in integration of the areas of global accounting, business administration and economics, to turn out graduates with a well-rounded education, ready to face the challenges of today’s job market.
FUCAPE also stands out for the academic articles published by its professors and students in leading national and international periodicals and their participation at events in Brazil and abroad. It makes available a library collection that is rigorously updated.
The policy is to encourage contact of students with real-world situations in the area of business, with multidisciplinary scope. By following this policy, FUCAPE has consolidated its position as a benchmark in business schools in Brazil, offering degrees at all levels, from bachelor’s to doctorates.
