International Week

Coppead is a pioneer in the internationalization of executive education. Thus, as part of our Executive MBA program, we offer a week of immersion in some of the world’s most relevant business schools, encouraging the development of truly global leaders.

Emphasis (100h)

After the first part of the course, you will be able to choose an emphasis to deepen your knowledge on a topic of your interest. At this stage it will be possible to share the experience with former MBA students, who can also take the courses of the emphasis, improving the discussion.

International Extension

The Double Degree Program offers 11 placements at three Business Schools, in France, to COPPEAD Executive MBA graduates every year. Participants have to take 150 hours of classes during their stay of a maximum of 6 weeks in France, and 160-200 hours of work in a final project, that can be done back in Brazil, with the coaching of a French professor. The project has to be presented either at the French School or through Skype conference to be scheduled by the student with his French advisor. Students approved in both stages are awarded the MBA certificate of the selected French Business School.

Specific details, deadlines and requirements are distributed by the International Affairs Office to Executive MBA students so that students can participate in the following year.

The EMBA Consortium for Global Business Innovation is the result of a collaboration of eleven business schools located in important world cities and regions intended to enrich our students’ educational experience. Its underlying philosophy is that by offering a global portfolio of geographically focused programs, students can confront the reality of doing business in vastly different settings in ways that reinforce previous learning and experiences and provide an important global perspective on business innovation, critical in today’s environment. By living in and learning from different markets, teachers, colleagues, companies, government institutions and cultures, students attending the Consortium will experience a paradigm shift that will serve them well for years to come. This week-long program provides executive MBA students with in-depth exposure to the experiences of businesses in different parts of the world as they cope with new challenges from local and global competition. Students can choose their preferred destination according to a bidding system coordinated by the consortium. Additional information can be obtained at embaconsortium.org or with the program coordinator: marco.rodrigues@coppead.ufrj.br

Student Profile

  1. Professionals who occupy positions at the top of their companies and who seek, in the MBA, a recycling of their knowledge in administration, as well as to know the experiences of other companies.
  2. Professionals who have recently occupied relevant positions in their companies and who seek to complement their training to the positions they have begun to occupy.
  3. Professionals who, within a very short space of time (one or two years), will occupy executive positions and seek to prepare themselves through our course.
  4. Professionals who are entrepreneurs or heirs of family businesses. In both cases, the short managerial experience is compensated by the high intensity with which it was acquired.

Admissions Policy

The admission process to the Executive MBA includes completing the application form and a personal interview with the course coordinator. The managerial experience of the candidate and the position he occupies in the company in which he works are some of the factors taken into consideration in the selection. The candidate must hold an university degree. The final decision on the acceptance of the candidate is made by the Selection Committee.
