Why CATÓLICA-LISBON | Executive Education?

Luís Cardoso, Director of CATÓLICA-LISBON Executive Education

As a leading business school in Portugal specializing in the area of Executive Training, CATÓLICA-LISBON has taken decisive steps in recent years in order to ensure its internationalization. Having undertaken several projects outside Portugal since the 1990s, the process was structured and consolidated in 2009 and programs have already been established in the United States, Poland, China, Brazil, Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, São Tomé and Príncipe and Mozambique.

This has only been possible because of the dynamism, professionalism and rigor of the entire team involved in the project, the excellent quality of the teaching faculty and the international recognition that the school has obtained in recent years.

After entering the global rankings in the field of Executive Training in 2007, the only Portuguese Business School ever to have done so and maintaining this position up to today, CATÓLICA-LISBON improved its classification over the years, so much so that today we are currently ranked among the 20 best schools in Europe and the 50 best in the world, ahead of all the schools of many of the most competitive European countries.

This trajectory, whose initial steps included the triple global accreditation for the Faculty (Triple Crown), is a responsibility that has inspired us and has resulted in increasing enthusiasm and dedication to guarantee valuable partnerships with companies and other Portuguese and international organizations. The CATÓLICA-LISBON has therefore emerged as a privileged partner in the area of corporate development.
