The Graduation Program in Administration (PPGA), which includes Master’s and Doctor’s Degree courses, trains researchers, professors and other professionals who are able to contribute at a high level to national and international scientific production and to the development of research and higher education. 

The PPGA focus area is called “Management and Sustainability”, which allows articulating the issues related to the research lines that are part of it: (a) Strategy and Management; and (b) Entrepreneurship and Sustainability. The research lines aim at the production of frontier knowledge, in order to establish the academic dialogue at the excellence level. This knowledge can and should be validated in the application environment, covering regional, national and international issues. One of the differentials of this program is the quality of its teaching staff, with research bonds and collaboration with different Brazilian and foreign institutions.

Admission in the courses may be made as a regular or special student, according to specific public notices, for both Brazilian and foreign applicants.
