Master in Administration
The Master in Administration is EBAPE's response to the current demands for Graduate Courses in Administration, in line with the guidelines of CAPES/Ministry of Education, which accredits it under the classification as a Professional Master's course in accordance with Administrative Ruling N. 080/98.
The Professional Master's course is primarily a part-time course which enables the master's students to reconcile their studies with their professional activities.
The course structure was based on EBAPE's experience with Lato Sensu graduate courses to identify the needs of the organizations and draw up the perceived profile of the administrator to fill positions in middle and senior management and in consultancy positions. This experience revealed a strong market demand for professionals with broad-based familiarity with management tools and information on international market dynamics as well as an enterprising spirit and sensitivity to market conditions. In this manner, from selection of candidates through to elaboration of the final work, , the course aims to develop knowledge, competencies, talents and attitudes to meet these demands.
While not ignoring the theoretic base that a master's graduate should have, the program invests primarily in the ability to acquire and apply knowledge, thus reducing the gap between theory and practice. Information on specific techniques is for the purpose of illustration and is studied in depth to establish how the inherent principle may be applicable in other circumstances.
The Master in Administration will enable the Master's graduate to:
•Exercise functions at middle or senior management level;
•Develop an enterprising managerial talent;
•Lecture at schools or universities in the field of Administration; •Provide consultancy work.
The distinguishing characteristic of this course is its preoccupation with the application and extension of knowledge for professional ends, striving to cater to candidates who wish to develop and enhance their abilities in business management in any institutional or organizational context.
