A discipline form the post-graduation course at FUNDAÇÃO GETULIO VARGAS (FGV), Strategy Business Simulation, with classes in a regular classroom, will be compared to the same discipline, in the same course, in distance modality (online) to verify if there is any significant difference in the students' performance. One single instructor will be used to teach in both modalities. Students, both from traditional class or online, will be given the some activities, reports for analyses, apostíle and will work in teams.
