Postscript: Fundação Getulio Varga (FGV) was established in 1944 with the original aim of cultivating qualified administrative staff for the Brazilian government and the private sector. Established in anticipation of a new era, FGV decided to expand its teaching focus, from a single management profession to a broader field of social sciences and economics, and gradually built the educational research institution that represents quality and excellence. FGV has campuses in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and the capital, Brasilia. The research areas include economics, business management, international relations, law, social sciences, public administration and mathematics. FGV’s law school was established in 2002.
