The Experience


At CATÓLICA-LISBON we care for our students.

Each student's development is supervised by experienced professionals because you are special. Students, professors and staff develop a strong sense of community, working together towards common goals.

That's why at CATÓLICA-LISBON your experience will be unique. We encourage your development and make sure that day-by-day you enhance your personal and professional skills and get ready for the world.

CATÓLICA-LISBON identifies each individual’s merits and strengths and by doing so helps you find your path, open horizons and unleash your full potential.


School Community

Interaction with society, colleagues and the market has become key to our students' development. CATÓLICA-LISBON offers every student the first part of their interactions at the very start of the Program: the Induction Days.

Alumni & Mentors

Also, the Mentoring Program is designed to create interaction between you and an alumnus so that you can guide your development and deepen your understanding of your career. Executives on campus is another Program that often brings the Portugal's Top Executives to CATÓLICA-LISBON to share their experience with the students.

Your first Project

However, your student life will be complete if you partner with your colleagues and create projects on a business environment and contribute to help society. At CATÓLICA-LISBON we stimulate and support our students in every project that can enhance student life. You just need an idea and we will happily support you to move forward.

Outdoor activities, adventure walks along the mountain trails and the interaction among students help them develop a sense of team spirit and camaraderie.
