The Lisbon MBA

Age: 6

History: The Lisbon MBA is a partnership between the two top business schools in Portugal, Católica-Lisbon and Nova SBE. Created in 2007 as part of a program of expansion and internationalisation of higher education in Portugal, the Lisbon MBA includes a two year part-time MBA and an International full-time MBA, in partnership with MIT’s prestigious Sloan School of Management.

Address: Rua Marques De Fronteira 20, 1099 038, Lisbon, Portugal

Ambience: Lisbon is a city rich in history and culture encompassing several areas in the region. It is considered to be an alpha global city, an important location in the global economy bringing together perspectives from Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia. As an emergent Atlantic hub, Lisbon offers some of the best business conditions in Europe, in terms of transport and communication infrastructures, facilities and qualified human resources at extremely competitive costs together with an unparallel quality of life. Lisbon was also chosen as the European Consumer's Choice Best Destination in 2010.

Vital statistics: The Lisbon MBA has small classes with 30 to 40 students per year. This allows full dedication in class and career support. The Lisbon MBA International runs from January to December in a full-time schedule (12 months) while The Lisbon MBA Part Time runs for 22 months in post-laboral schedule. Both programs are lectured in English.

Added value: Three world class institutions (Nova SBE, Católica-Lisbon and MIT Sloan); Prestigious Faculty, Triple Crown accreditation, strong focus on interpersonal skills, MIT immersion.

Easy to get into? You will need to possess a degree in any subject, minimum three years of working experience, GMAT or GRE and an English fluency exam (TOEFL or IELTS, CAE or CPE).

International connections: In one year, you can study on three different continents. The Lisbon MBA International students take a one month MIT Sloan immersion in Boston and they can also choose to take an International Lab. The average number of international students is between 25 and 38 per cent per year.

Cost: The Lisbon MBA International - €35,000 and The Lisbon MBA Part Time - €21,000. The tuition fees are paid in several installments throughout the year and you can also benefit from The Lisbon MBA loans and scholarships.

Return on investment: Despite the challenging economic times, three months after graduation 80 per cent of students accepted a full-time job offer.

Who's the boss: Dean Francisco Veloso (Católica-Lisbon), Dean José Ferreira Machado (Nova SBE),  Nuno Couceiro (The Lisbon MBA Executive director)
