The MPGPP develops professionals capable of tackling the main contemporary challenges of states and the non-state public sector in implementing public policies and improving the quality of services delivered to citizens. Technical foundations are combined with practical applications, in order to cover the current agenda of management, government and public policy.
The program is designed for experienced professionals who deal with public issues at state, third sector or private organizations and who understand that new challenges and responsibilities require complementary education. There is interaction between participants, and the professors recommend sources to deepen and integrate students’ knowledge and concrete experiences.
The technical foundations are not just aimed at educating researchers and professors, but also developing high-level professionals who are committed to improving public sector services in Brazil. This objective applies to all the program’s activities, including the final paper, which is intended to solve practical problems faced by public organizations.

There are two course modalities, with the same structure and curricular requirements. The Regular modality is designed for people who wish to balance the MPGPP with their professional activities, while the Intensive modality is aimed at people who can take a leave of absence to study full time.

- Are people who complete the professional master’s able to then do a doctorate?
Yes, they are. The professional master’s is a graduate course, and so it enables you to go on to do doctoral programs, including ones with an academic profile.
- Can I qualify as a professor by doing the master’s?
Like all professional programs, the MPGPP aims to enhance and qualify professionals in the public area who work in management, the public policy cycle, government relations and government. On the other hand, preparing to become a professor or researcher is the purpose of academic courses, such as FGV EAESP’s Master’s in Public and Government Administration program.
- Can recent graduates take the MPGPP?
No, they cannot. The professional master’s is designed for professionals with some experience in their area of activity.
- How long does the course last for?
It lasts for 2 years, 2 months in the Regular modality, and 1 year, 2 months in the Intensive modality. In both cases, the last two months are dedicated to completing and evaluating the final paper.
- Is it necessary to defend a thesis?
The MPGPP course’s final paper is not a traditional thesis, under the model used by academic programs, but rather an applied work of diagnosis and advice for public sector organizations (state or non-state) about a given area of public policy, management or government. This work is done in a group and it must be accompanied by an individual paper, in the form of an article or set of cases, which permit reflection on practical problems in the public sector.
