FGV-EAESP was founded in the 1950s by the joint efforts of the Brazilian government, Brazilian business community, and Michigan State University. In the midst of a major industrialization period, Brazil had a sudden and immediate need for skilled management and expertise to confront the country’s new economic obstacles. FGV was created to assume this responsibility and has since that time continued to contribute to Brazil’s development through the training of first-rate leaders and experts in economy, business and management.
