The Coppead Graduate School of Business, the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro

Introduction
EFMD Equis Accredited

COPPEAD is the Graduate School of Business of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro - UFRJ). Its origins date back to 1973 when it was created as one of the programs within COPPE, UFRJ's Coordination of Graduate Programs in Engineering. From the start, COPPEAD has been guided by a vision to create an educational institution capable of meeting the highest international standards in its field. The first formative years were marked by a considerable exchange of faculty with some of the best international business schools in the US and Europe. In 1980, COPPEAD moved to its own building within the main UFRJ campus and, soon later, acquired the status of an autonomous institute within the structure of the University, thus becoming the COPPEAD Graduate School of Business.

The COPPEAD Graduate School of Business is committed to excellence in its graduate business teaching and research.

As part of a public university we aim to contribute to the development of Brazil by providing education to present and future business leaders who are able to perform highly both in the local and global environment, and to new faculty who can disseminate and create innovative knowledge in business.
