FGV Projetos is the Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) technical advisory unit in charge of using the academic knowledge generated and assembled at its schools and institutes. Their representatives provide high-level advisory services to public, private and third-sector institutions in Brazil and abroad, developing projects in different areas such as economics and finance, management and administration, and public policy.

The generated resources are invested in FGV teaching and research activities, thus contributing to the education of a new Brazilian technical and academic staff. To accomplish this goal, it counts on a whole team holding Master´s and Doctorate degrees.

For over 30 years, FGV Projetos has been gathering expertise, innovative methodologies and a team of qualified professionals with proven experience in promoting efficient management practices. The unit also seeks solutions to strategic issues to promote national development, always caring about social issues and knowledge sharing, both linked to economic growth and sustainability.

Its recent 2012 South-South and Triangular Cooperation ─ Brazil and Mozambique for Biofuels Leadership Award, issued by United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), indicates the international recognition for  its wide and consolidated track record, successful projects and experiences.

Mission

To further the quality of public and private organizations, and contribute to the country's development through the practical application of the expert know-how produced by and acquired in FGV’s schools and institutes.

Vision

To consolidate itself nationally and internationally as a leader in providing specialized technical consultancy services of unimpeachable ethical caliber and expert quality to public and private organizations, distinguishing itself on the market by bringing together state-of-the-art expertise in various areas of competence, while remaining fully committed to the socioeconomic advancement of Brazil.

History

Fundação Getulio Vargas was established in 1944 with the goal of contributing to the promotion of economic and social development of Brazil. For almost 70 years its actions have left a mark of excellence on the academic history of the country. The knowledge applied to the formulation of public policies and business practices, built upon high-quality standards of education and scientific research, makes FGV a reference in the areas of administration, economics, law, historical research and documentation.

It was the first Latin American institution to train graduates in public and business administration. It is the only Brazilian institution of higher education among the 100 best in the world, according to rankings published by the New York Times in 2002. According to a global survey conducted by the University of Pennsylvania, today FGV appears among the top 30 Think Tanks in the world in the categories of Public Policy, Development and Internal Economic Policy. Nationally, the Ministry of Education has included three of FGV's schools among the top five in the country.

Matching the high expectations generated for such recognition is a great motivation for FGV to continue developing and fortifying its academic excellence and its commitment to Brazilian society.
