About FIA

FIA - Fundação Instituto de Administração is a private not-for-profit institution established in 1980 that congregates a select group of program directors who manage institutional programs and develop research projects, consultancy and business education in all areas of administration.
The multidisciplinary feature of the group and teams that form the Foundation allows the execution of projects of all sizes and scopes with great organizational and social relevance.
Since 1993, when the first MBA was launched, FIA has trained over 8,000 executives. All MBA courses are recognized by MEC (Ministry of Education) and have the quality certification by the AMBA (Association of MBAs), appearing prominently in the top rankings of executive education, in Brazil and abroad. 
Currently FIA has a portfolio of executive education courses, such as extension courses, MBAs, graduate courses, post-MBA programs, in addition to the Undergraduate Program in Management which aims to transform young people into successful executives. 

To this end, the Foundation has three educational units of excellent standard, located in the districts of Butantã, Pinheiros and Vila Olímpia, all with modern infrastructure, last generation information technology and strong administrative support. 

During its 30 years of existence, more than 3,000 companies have been attended including private national and multinational, public sector organizations and public administration, associations and civil society organizations. About five thousand projects have been developed during this period, in the three basic lines of activities (education, research and consulting), enabling FIA to implement studies and provide services in various specialized fields of administration studies. 
Due to its continued contribution to society and to projects of great social impact, in 2005, the Foundation was declared a public service institution by municipal, state and federal governments.
