FGV EPGE holds meetings to debate issues of great social relevance in the academic environment. Suggested by the school’s own students, the series of lectures intends to expose students to debates and lectures dealing with pressing social issues, to help them support their ideas and arguments on these same topics and other related ones.
Despite being aimed mainly at undergraduate students at EPGE and FGV as a whole, this series of debates is open to the public. Recent speakers include the vice dean of EPGE, Aloisio Araujo, and Indian economist Partha Dasgupta, one of the world’s leading specialists in global economics.
The school believe it is highly beneficial for students to gain exposure to topics that are often not directly addressed in their course curriculum and it carries out surveys of its students to identify new topics to be explored and improve the lectures’ format.
