I would like to congratulate EPGE’s undergraduate students for their excellent performance in ENADE 2018. Our students have obtained another important national achievement for themselves and for our school. EPGE came top nationwide in the area of economics for the second consecutive year and it has taken first place in three of the five evaluations carried out to date by the Education Ministry (in 2006, 2015 and 2018).

In addition to the students who took ENADE in 2018, I would like to congratulate all the school’s other students, alumni, employees, professors and undergraduate program coordinators. It is an honor for all of us to be able to serve Brazil through high-quality education.

EPGE wishes to inform everyone that it took first place nationwide in economics in the latest National Student Performance Exam (ENADE), competing against nearly 200 institutions that offer this course in Brazil. The 2015 ENADE results were released on March 8, 2017 by the Education Ministry.

This achievement belongs to all EPGE’s students. In particular, we congratulate the students listed below who took this exam in the economics area and brought this great honor to themselves and to the school:

With this result, EPGE obtains first place in 4 of the 6 evaluations already carried out by the MEC.

EPGE won first place nationally in ENADE for Economics, which it did for the 4th time in the 6 assessments carried out by the MEC to date. Furthermore, it was also the only school to obtain the maximum continuous grade of 5 (five) among 229 Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) that teach the Economics course in Brazil.

In historical terms, in the six ENADE assessments already carried out by the MEC since 2006 (2006, 2009, 2012, 2015, 2018 and 2022), EPGE obtained first place nationally in 2006, 2015, 2018 and 2022. In other words, in addition to being the economics HEI with the highest number of times in first place, it was also first in all three of the last evaluations.

This is an achievement for everyone and for all EPGE students. It was obtained by undergraduate students, but it represents a recognition that also extends to Academic Master's, Academic Doctorate and Professional Master's students. It also establishes a level of excellence for the “EPGE in Executive Education” Program, consisting of extension and lato sensu postgraduate courses developed by the School.

To celebrate this achievement, EPGE will hold a tribute to the students on November 24th. This event will provide an opportunity not only to recognize the effort and dedication of students, but also to strengthen ties between members of the institution who contributed to this success.

We especially congratulate those students, who took the last National Student Performance Exam (ENADE), in its most recent version, in 2022, and brought this important distinction to themselves and to the School.
