FIA Business School (Fundação Instituto de Administração) is a private, not-for-profit institution established in 1980 that congregates a select group of program directors who manage institutional programs and develop research projects, consultancy, and business education in all areas of administration.

All MBA courses are recognized by the Brazilian Ministry of Education and have the quality certification by AMBA (Association of MBAs), appearing prominently in the top rankings of executive education in Brazil and abroad.

Currently, FIA has a portfolio of executive education courses, such as extension courses, MBAs, graduate courses, post-MBA programs, in addition to the undergraduate program in management, which aims to transform young people into successful executives.
