The Lisbon MBA

The Lisbon MBA is a joint-venture between the two top business schools in Portugal – Católica-Lisbon and Nova SBE.  After graduating, our students receive an MBA Diploma from both schools and they also have the possibility of obtaining an Masters degree in Business Administration by presenting a work project/thesis.
Take classes and develop new networks at the MIT Sloan School of Management during a 1-month immersion in Boston. You will have access to MIT’s professors, libraries and learning centers, while enriching your curriculum in areas where MIT is a leading reference. After graduating, students have access to the MIT Affiliate Status. 
Each year we welcome an exceptional group of 35 to 40 students from around the world, allowing us to provide a personalized approach to your academic, personal and professional development. The Lisbon MBA classes are small in order to maximize the learning experience and create a very intimate classroom where students get to interact and learn from the best faculty, but also build stronger relationships and networks among teir colleagues, staff and corporate guests. 
After your MBA core courses, complete a 2-month Action Learning period matching your career aspirations in Portugal or abroad. You can either apply to do an MBA level internship in a company, be part of a consultancy group in an International Lab, or start your entrepreneurial venture through Startup Lisboa.
The Friday Forum workshops will allow you to become self-aware of your identity, beliefs and habits, realize the way they suit you when you need to handle challenging contexts and situations, and provide you with tools, concepts, or just "out of the box" experiences that will feed your own choices regarding who you are and who you want to become as a leader. 
The Lisbon MBA was considered the 20th best MBA program in Europe – by the Financial Times Top 100 Global MBA 2017 Ranking. It is also the 1st in the “International Course Experience” rank  in Europe.
One of the main objectives of our Career Management Center is to broaden the range of career opportunities open to you. To achieve it, we continuously develop contacts with the corporate world. Corporate Insight Sessions, Breakfasts with CEO’s, Mock interviews, Consulting Projects and Internships are some of the initiatives that you can experience as a student. At the end of the MBA you’ll have developed a network of contacts that will be key for lifelong career management.
The romantic and bustling Portuguese capital will be your home-base during several months of the program. Lisbon has become one of Europe's hottest startup cities which top key features, according to the European Digital City Index, are the low-cost of living and the high quality of life. Welcome to Lisbon!
Be part of this very unique concept. Places are limited so start your application today!
