The ANPAD – Brazilian Academy of Management is the leading national association of graduate programs, research groups, and researchers in the field of administration, accounting, and related fields.
ANPAD has been operating since 1976 and brings together 104 graduate programs and more than 2,000 members from all over the country. Each year, ANPAD organizes three divisional meetings and one general meeting representing 11 research groups of our community. In addition, ANPAD publishes two leading academic journals – the Journal of Contemporary Administration (RAC) and BAR – Brazilian Administration Review, and one referenced database of scientific content (Spell). Also, it is responsible for Teste ANPAD, a nationwide used proficiency test for graduate programs.
ANPAD also advocates in the interests of associated graduate programs in society and in the dialogue with the scientific community and government agencies responsible for regulating education, scientific and technological development in Brazil.
Thus, ANPAD is an important space for dialogue, academic debates, and social experience, contributing to the exercise of democracy and citizenship, and aiming to advance the quality of research in management, accounting, and correlated fields.
