MIT Sloan is collaborating with the top two Portuguese business schools, Universidade Católica Portuguesa (FCEE Católica) and Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Nova), in the creation of a full-time MBA program based in Lisbon. Students receive a joint MBA degree from FCEE Católica and Nova, as well as a certificate from MIT. Lisbon MBA students spend four weeks in June at MIT Sloan for intensive coursework, and Lisbon MBA faculty participate as International Faculty Fellows.


The Lisbon MBA full-time program enhances the internationalization of both Nova and FCEE Católica, while also contributing to MIT Sloan’s collaborations with leading institutions to strengthen management education around the world. The Lisbon MBA Full-Time Program is designed to prepare innovative leaders capable of responding to opportunities and challenges in today’s business world. The intense curriculum promises to hone managers’ abilities to think creatively about complex situations, successfully lead teams, and drive change in the global economy.

The Program’s launch was celebrated in January 2009, with the support of the Portuguese Prime Minister, José Socrates, and numerous corporate partners and foundations. The collaboration was announced the previous year.
