The Business Administration Program of FUCAPE Business School has an internationalized curriculum whose contents are tailored to the business reality in Brazil and worldwide, with emphasis on quantitative methods. It differs from other courses mainly because it is inserted in the context of business and integrated knowledge, which makes the student a full professional. Such excellence, recognized by the market, makes students better prepared and sought-after by companies, even before they graduate.

 

FUCAPE’s educational policy is as follows:

  • Faculty composed mainly of professors with PhD degrees directly dedicated to teaching and research activities;
  • Focus on research that looks for effective solutions to issues experienced by companies;
  • Agreements with several large and medium-sized companies;
  • Professors and course coordinators available to students for out-of-class assistance;

  • Library with a collection rigorously updated, and with access to databases such as JSTORr, EBSCO and “Portal Periódicos”;
  • Interdisciplinary integration among undergraduate programs.

They work in practically every department of a company, such as finance, human resources, production, commercial, marketing, among others.

Five full-tuition scholarships and five undergraduate research scholarships will be granted to the five top-ranked students in the admission exams, regardless of the program chosen. Applicants who score 75% or more in the admission exams (multiple choice + essay exams) are eligible for scholarships. The full regulations of the FUCAPE Program for Research Incentive are found in the Applicant Handbook, which is an integral part of this announcement.

The Supervised Internship is a report written by the student under the supervision of a faculty member. This report describes the professional experience of the student in an analytical and reflective approach based on theoretical knowledge acquired throughout the course. The report should contextualize the organizational environment within a theoretical framework, allowing the construction of a technical analysis based on empirical evidence.

 

The Supervised Internship covers 300 hours and should start from the fifth term.

Project Internship Program

 

In this program, a professor (or a group of professors) prepares a strategy to implement a project for a company.

 

The FUCAPE student will take part in this implementation by performing tasks assigned by professors, in mutual agreement with company managers. The purpose is to allow the student to experience the daily life in business management.

 

Students will be assigned specific tasks and they must indicate their decisions and the justifications for them. At the end of the implementation of the project in the company, a seminar is held to assess team performance and to make projections of future results.

 

Competency Mapping:
