Career Accelerator Lab helps you prepare for the next level of your career with company challenges, recruitment simulators, personal career advisors, and access to internship opportunities. Dive into highly interactive workshops designed to enhance your core competencies as a professional of the future.
Laboratory for Experimental Research in Economics and Management (LERNE) is one of the innovation and research centers in the school.  Master students contribute to the knowledge creation at CATÓLICA-LISBON by participating in the center's activities and behavioral studies about the decision processes of managers and consumers.  This intellectual contribution is part of the study plan of the Master Programs.

Professional experience, such as a non-credit granting company internship with a minimum duration of 6 weeks is mandatory to complete this program.  Prior professional experience completed after June 1st 2022 can be used to fulfill this requirement (subject to validation by the Careers & Talent Office).


Study trips are an optional feature that offers valuable opportunities to learn about new industries, locations, and professional roles. In 2023, our students got to visit fascinating companies in Dublin, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Madrid and learned first-hand about their culture, mission, and practices.  Although study trips are not included in the costs of the program, they are highly recommended for the students of the International Masters in Management Program.
