About the program

The School of Applied Mathematics at FGV (FGV EMAp) offers high-quality and contemporary education that combines traditional mathematics with statistics and computing techniques, creating opportunities for the development of new technologies and addressing various real-life problems that require the use of advanced mathematics.

FGV EMAp boasts a team of over 30 excellent, highly prepared professors with diverse backgrounds. This diversity allows our students to explore a wide range of topics where Mathematics, Statistics, and Computing can be applied, such as Engineering, Economics, Finance, Epidemiology, Law, among others. All FGV EMAp professors teach undergraduate courses at the institution.

FGV EMAp encourages undergraduate students in Applied Mathematics to participate in summer activities, particularly by taking consecutive-year courses like Topology and Algebraic Structures: Groups and Rings, in addition to a variety of mathematical disciplines important in applications, such as Numerical Analysis, Data Structures and Algorithms, Stochastic Processes, Statistics, Optimization, Programming Languages and others, this ensures that the acquired mathematical education covers all topics usually taught in pure mathematics undergraduate programs.

FGV is opening applications for the Double Degree Program for students currently enrolled in undergraduate programs at FGV EBAPE, FGV DIREITO, FGV EMAp, and FGV CDDOC for the first academic semester of 2024.

Furthermore, students are encouraged to engage in research initiation projects under the guidance of our professors or to advance into more specialized branches of Mathematics and Computer Science. Advanced course tracks are offered to students as optional choices starting from the second semester.

Our graduates become proficient in working in strategic sectors of both public and private companies, such as banks and consulting firms, with a very high employability rate. They are also well-equipped to engage in academic research.
