Others Master‘s Degree


FUCAPE’s master’s degree programs are focused on the needs of specific markets and give priority to practice rather than purely academic training, without, however, losing the explanatory power of scientific aspects. The scientific performance of our master’s degree programs can be verified by the participation in major scientific events of the field (Master’s in Accounting and Master’s in Business Administration) as one of the most productive research centers.


FUCAPE’s Master’s Degree in Business Administration program is built on the expertise acquired through the development of the Master’s Degree in Accounting. Such expertise was essential to identify organizations’ needs and outline the required profile of managers, whether to hold medium and senior management positions, or to train professors and researchers. Such experience revealed a strong market trend, both in the public and private sectors, for professionals with a wide basis of knowledge in management tools and solid information about international market dynamics, market sensitivity, and social responsibility.


Therefore, our Master’s Degree in Business Administration was conceived based on the cognitive approach to knowledge, i.e., based on the strong relationship between subject and object. The program has already developed and continues to develop top-level applied research, consistent academic projects, qualified faculty resident in the state of Espírito Santo, infrastructure and technical and technological competence to ensure the development of the program in line with the required quality standards. The combination of teaching and professional application, meeting the demand for a greater interface between the academic world and the community, has been ensured by technical cooperation agreements with the largest and best institutions of Espírito Santo, whether academic, business and/or profession-related. This has allowed the development of joint research and/or funding of staff training.


The Master’s Degree in Business Administration has finance and strategy as its main fields of study. Such fields of study, initially intended for the private sector, were conceived under the principle that experience and progress in the development of knowledge in this area can only be achieved by rigorous application of economic theory, supported by projection tools, to the real problems of management in companies.


In order to succeed, students of the program will use the experience acquired from the Master’s Degree in Accounting program, whose operational method has been successfully applied. From 2003 to 2009, many articles were written by professors, researchers and students of the program, and approved in national and international academic conferences selected by CAPES (QUALIS).


The Master’s Degree in Business Administration was recommended by the same Scientific Technical Council (locally CTC) in March 2006. The PhD in Accounting and Business Administration was recommended in 2009 with Score 4.


FUCAPE was accredited by the Brazilian Ministry of Education by means of Edict 2,765 of September 6, 2004.

Eligible applicants for this program are holders of bachelor degrees in the business area and/or executives from small and medium-sized companies holding similar degrees in other fields of knowledge.

The purposes of the Master’s Degree in Business Administration are:


- To develop high level professionals to work in finance and business strategy in general, especially in one of the research lines offered by FUCAPE, in order to generate new knowledge and introduce innovative procedures and techniques.


- To train high level researchers, university professors and specialists in business administration.  


- To develop advanced and systematic studies in business administration.


- To encourage self-development and professional competency through an effective program directed to continuous improvement of professionals.


- To encourage and guide research, whether individual or in groups, to contribute to the development of business administration and to the promotion of such scientific and professional knowledge.
