Once more, UFV is among the 10 most enterprising universities in Brazil. The ranking, in which the University obtained the 9th place, was released on Tuesday (22), in a solemn session, in the Chamber of Deputies, in Brasilia, by Brasil Júnior - National Confederation of Junior Companies. It was collected information and analyzed 123 universities from the 27 federal units of the country and over 15,000 students were heard.
The ranking is a study that lists the most enterprising universities based on six evaluation criteria: entrepreneurial culture, innovation, extension, infrastructure, internationalization and financial capital. Among them, it is worth mentioning the infrastructure and internationalization in which UFV won the 4th and 7th places, respectively.
The evaluation reinforces the University's role as one of the main centers of junior entrepreneurship, with 42 junior companies (EJs). In addition to housing the largest nucleus of EJs in Minas Gerais, the Junior Enterprise Student Center (Ceempre), UFV gained even more recognition in 2019: it became a Junior HEI. This title is given only when 25% of the courses have Confederate junior companies, that is, federated to the state and national representative instance.
According to Ceempre CEO Yaankha Bharbara, this data shows the strength that the Junior Enterprise Movement (MEJ) has at UFV, seeking to impact people through entrepreneurship and contribute to the professional education of thousands of students.
