History

Fundação Getulio Vargas was founded on December 20, 1944. Its initial objective was to prepare qualified people to work in public and private administration in Brazil. At the time, the country was already starting to lay the foundations for the growth that would come in the following decades. Anticipating the arrival of a new era, FGV decided to expand its focus on action and, from the restricted field of administration, it entered the broader area of the social and economic sciences. The institution went beyond the frontiers of teaching, into the areas of research and information as well, and became known as a center of excellence.

A pioneering and bold brand, Fundação Getulio Vargas provided Brazil’s first undergraduate, MA and Ph.D. courses in public and private administration, as well as graduate courses in economics, psychology, accounting, and education. FGV also paved the way for a well-grounded economy, by analyzing its balance of payments, public accounts, and other economic indicators. Initiatives such as these have helped professionals to gain qualifications and the general public to get a better understanding of Brazil’s economic and social performance.

Talent

The reliability of FGV’s indicators and activities have been built over the course of generations by the talent and dedication of people such as Luiz Narciso Alves de Mattos, Eugenio Gudin, Themistocles Brandão Cavalcanti, Alexandre Kafka, Octavio Gouvêa de Bulhões, Emílio Mira y Lopes, and Mario Henrique Simonsen. Their willpower has always overcome all obstacles. Thanks to the efforts of these idealists, political and business leaders, executives, researchers, and students have continually renewed their trust in the institution’s reputation and principles, strengthening its prestige inside and outside Brazil.

The products and services offered by Fundação Getulio Vargas continuously help to improve the productivity and competitiveness of many companies and enhance the operations of municipal, state and federal government organizations. The solid knowledge of market dynamics and practices, great academic competence and international experience of its faculty have allowed FGV to create a diversified and comprehensive set of products, designed to meet the needs and expectations of its stakeholders, whether in the public or private sector.

Encouragement of Academic Research

A leader in the creation and refinement of ideas that contribute to national development, FGV invests in and encourages academic research, resulting in significant output, recognized nationally and internationally. The subjects explored include macroeconomics, microeconomics, finance, law, health, social security, poverty and unemployment, pollution, and sustainable development. The Foundation also runs research programs in the fields of history, the social sciences, education, justice, citizenship, and politics.

FGV is also commissioned to do work for the public sector, companies and international organizations such as the World Bank. Furthermore, through the Brazilian Institute of Economics (IBRE), it generates and publishes indicators and reports to help shape the Brazilian economy, as a public service.
