Main Article Content
Due to the central role that ITs have played in transforming society and the knowledge economy, it is essential to understand IT Governance (ITG), a subject that is evolving worldwide. When considering Brazil only, this research domain stands out in academia along with the United States and China. In this context, the objective of this study is to identify and describe the panorama of scientific capital, based on the final product of Brazilian graduate programs, theses and dissertations, concerning ITG. From a qualitative and quantitative approach, an exploratory and descriptive research was carried out through documentary and bibliometric research, with data extracted from the Lattes Platform and the Sucupira Platform of the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES). The main results evidenced that more than half of the studies in ITG come from graduate programs in Administration, among other areas such as Engineering and Computing. It is concluded that ITG is an interdisciplinary subject, not adhering to only a certain field of knowledge within Brazil. It is noted that ITG has a scientific capital set up and that it is still developing in this country.
