  • 0721-17_iel.jpg

The industry is steel, oil, bread, machinery, computer and employee; it creates, transforms, invents. Each industry has one sector; each sector, their needs. At the end, no industry is the same as another. Only one thing is common to all: the leader. He defines the success of the industry, whether large or small, with many or few employees, in the X or Y industry. And to develop the industry leader, nothing beats the industry itself. Therefore, we have Firjan IEL, the industry business school.

Through courses, workshops, studies and consulting in innovation management, we intend to boost the development of the industry of Rio de Janeiro, connect practical and innovative experiences in management, inspire business leaders to experience governance methods and problem solutions to stimulate the exponential growth of your business.

"What is the main problem to solve in your company?" By answering this question, Firjan IEL understands and translates the needs of leaders to help them in developing strategic actions, whether through executive education, consulting or programs that have applicability and sustainability in business environments.

In 2017, we covered almost 600 companies and trained more than 1,600 people through almost 500 hours of workshops, courses and consultancies.
