This achievement of the UNIFENAS Administration course, Alfenas campus, signals its excellence and quality! Accredited institutions have achieved excellent results in the tests applied by the MEC (Ministry of Education) for students of Higher Education Institutions in order to measure the quality of the educational process. In 2012, 88% of accredited institutions scored top marks, and the 12% that did not score top marks scored highest in their states. To achieve these results, the student is prepared to understand the scientific, technical, social and economic issues of production and its management, observing the gradual levels of the decision-making process, as well as to develop qualitative and adequate management, revealing the assimilation of new information and presenting intellectual flexibility and contextualized adaptability in dealing with different situations, present or emerging, in the various segments of the administrator's field of action.

Complementary and integrative activities
Complementary activities make room for the student to exercise learning in other places and times different from classrooms and laboratories. The integrative activities – managerial practices aim to make the course as close as possible to the practical relationships of professional life. They are present throughout the course and constitute an integral action space between teaching, research and extension. They are intended, above all, to update the curriculum – with variable programmatic contents – by incorporating new themes of scientific relevance, but which do not develop into autonomous disciplines. These activities allow for new situations that will facilitate the development of important skills and abilities in the student's education, with repercussions in their professional life. They are: analysis of society's problems in search of solutions; decision-making; experience of leadership situations; development of an entrepreneurial profile and communication of interpersonal relationships, among others.
