The Lisbon MBA International Program

The Lisbon MBA International program unites two of Portugal’s top business schools—Católica-Lisbon School of Business and Economics, and Nova School of Business and Economics—with MIT Sloan for a one-year, one-of-a-kind MBA program. With access to the resources of all three schools, students develop their ability to think creatively about complex situations, respond swiftly and strategically to business challenges, successfully lead teams, and drive positive change in the global economy.

Upon completion of the program, students receive a joint MBA degree from Católica-Lisbon and Nova, and a certificate from MIT Sloan. Graduates are recognized as affiliate alumni of MIT Sloan, with access to MIT Sloan’s extensive alumni community and networking events around the world.
