Our History

Fundação Getulio Vargas’s Sao Paulo School of Business Administration (FGV EAESP) was founded in 1954, thanks to the joint efforts of the Brazilian government and business community, in collaboration with Michigan State University, in order to train people to tackle the challenges Brazil was going through.

It was a period of fast growth, technological change, international contact and the emergence of new economic powers. In this context, the School played a fundamental role in preparing and updating Brazil’s managerial capacity, working to meet new demands for executive education and accompanying the phase of intense industrial development that was beginning.

Since then, FGV EAESP has enhanced itself continuously to meet the demands of the academic and business communities, creating and implementing new courses and services in many different sectors.
