International Master of Science in Management

"Shortly after I began the best master program in Portugal I exponentially grew my professional network, completed a Double Degree in Finance at Norway’s finest Business School, founded the Católica Finance Club, learned and applied what I learned in Norway. Even after graduation, CATÓLICA-LISBON continues to benefit you as it continually climbs in global recognition being now in the Top 25 European Business Schools according to the FT. I’m now working in the banking sector in Miami, Florida. Thanks to CATÓLICA-LISBON, this is only the beginning and I don’t have limits on what I can imagine for my future going forward. To sum it all up, CATÓLICA-LISBON helps you develop what you need to go limitless."

"I was already one year into my master’s degree in Management at CATÓLICA-LISBON, when I went back to my former employer in New York.

This time just for the summer. This time I really did make a difference!"

Johanna Friess

International Master of Science in Management

"After a short visit to CATÓLICA-LISBON, my decision to study at this School was made. Motivated professors, university staff and an international student body throughout my studies proved my decision to be right.

I even had the chance to participate at the L’Oréal Brandstorm Marketing Challenge where I could deepen my practical skills. The third semester was especially challenging as I went to a partner university in St. Petersburg [Russia] where I enriched my cultural experience."

Justus Wolff

International Master in Management

 "CATÓLICA-LISBON offered me a very good European Masters degree with high reputation, an outstanding price/quality ratio and comprehensive major programs in one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. After one year at CATÓLICA-LISBON I can say that I am highly satisfied with the program and the support of the university both, inside and outside the classrooms. This includes the teaching quality of theoretical and practical contents, the extra-curricular activities and the international opportunities. I have experienced a very collaborative environment, a broad variety of courses from only concepts to pragmatic company ventures and the possibility to develop myself in free elective courses. Lisbon offers a great student life and although sometimes the workload may include long hours, I don’t know any student who leaves this city without having a great experience.

I am going to finish my final semester with a thesis in Brazil and I am very grateful for the moments I had during this year at CATÓLICA-LISBON."

Matthias Berchtold

"From the first moment, I realized that pursuing a Master at CATÓLICA-LISBON was the best decision of my life. Two challenging but fulfilling years in one of Europe’s leading business schools prepared me perfectly for all the adventures yet to come."

Sofia Falcão

 "Studying at CATÓLICA-LISBON was a great experience that opened several doors to other opportunities. At CATÓLICA-LISBON you have the possibility to engage in academic research, join one of the school’s clubs, have a volunteering experience, study abroad or do internships at the best firms, both in Portugal and internationally, all of this backed by top level teaching that provides a very solid academic foundation. I am now working in the Investment Banking Division of Morgan Stanley in London. I feel that my time at CATÓLICA-LISBON prepared me for this not only on an academic level but also challenged me to become engaged in other activities, do more and better. Ultimately I feel this made me a stronger candidate and, I hope, a better professional."
