History: The School of Economics and Business Administration has been teaching management programmes since 1972, so it has a reasonable amount of clout on the international business school scene. This was consolidated when the postgraduate school was founded in 1991 and the MBA programme was launched. 2009 marked the beginning of the Lisbon MBA, a full-time international programme organised in collaboration with Nova de Lisboa and MIT Sloan School of Management.

Address: The MBA programme facilities are shared between Faculdade de Economia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa and Universidade Catolica Portugesa. They are located in the centre of Lisbon.

Ambience: The atmosphere is competitive and challenging, with students getting the chance to interact with international professors and leading business executives. The Lisbon MBA believes in a personalised relationship with students, drawing out the individual strengths of each student while learning.

Vital statistics: The Lisbon MBA is a brand new joint-venture between Nova and FCEE Católica – the leading business schools in Portugal. This partnership includes an International Full Time MBA – in partnership with MIT’s prestigious Sloan School of Management and a Part Time MBA. The Lisbon MBA is framed with an international outlook and a strong focus on interpersonal competences and leadership that provides a platform where talented, ambitious and high-flying students from all over the world may meet and engage in active learning, interacting with top notch faculty. The Lisbon MBA programs are taught entirely in English, with several international students and professors.

Added value: The Lisbon MBA allows students to gain a qualification in business and economics from two of the most prestigious academic institutions in Portugal. The two schools are both accredited by EQUIS and AMBA, and both place great importance on research.

FCEE is nowadays recognised as a leading Management and Economics school in Portugal Católica and accredited by AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. Innovation and modernisation are permanent goals in order to keep up with the modern scientific theories and techniques and also with society’s needs.
