The Postgraduate Program in Business Administration (PPGAD) of the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul (UFMS) in Campo Grande – Mato Grosso do Sul, would like to announce an invitation to foreign students from different countries to send projects in line with the topics of our team of researchers.


The postgraduate experience of the group of teachers is rooted on the Graduate Program in Agribusiness (Interdisciplinary area). A master’s degree course coordinated by the UFM for five years based on a consortium among UFMS, the Federal University of Goiás and the University of Brasília. After this experience, each university designed its own program. The first master’s degree program in administration of PPGAD/UFMS started in March, 2008 and the first doctorate program began in April, 2016.
