Application Guidelines

OVERVIEW 

♣    The Winter School offers different courses each year. You can choose one or more courses according to your availability, course schedules, students' profile to attend the course and previous knowledge required.

♣    The Winter School courses are for Ph.D. students, MSc students, and professors from FGV and other Institutions only. 

♣    Before you apply, ask the Department of the Program in which you are regularly enrolled about credit recognition (Credit for Recognized Learning). Credit recognition is granted for regular students at FGV EAESP Master’s and Doctoral Program in Business Administration or Public Administration and Government (CMCD AE / CMCD APG) and will be made following the information availed in the course page.

♣    Before you apply for enrollment, read this Application Guide and the information on your course page to make sure that you provide the correct documents and information.

♣    Only a limited number of places are available on each course, and once they have been taken, there will be no more places made available. As places are limited, we advise you to apply for the course as soon as possible.

♣    If you truly meet the requirements to enroll in one course and  vacancies for this course are already filled, send an e-mail to ei@fgv.br  and ask to have your name put on the "wait list" of students wanting to get into the course. If a seat becomes available, we will send an email to the first eligible person on the wait list.

♣    We strongly recommend you to apply for enrollment at the beginning of the enrollments if you need a student visa.

♣    This guide is for 2019 entry and cannot be used to apply in subsequent years.

♣    It is the applicant's responsibility to submit the complete and accurate application in due time.
