Porto Business School


Porto Business School is the Business School at the largest Portuguese University, the University of Porto. Its mission is the teaching of graduate courses and advanced executive management training, complementary activities with a permanent involvement in the fields of applied research and business services.

Porto Business School brings together the skills and the experience of the former EGP-UP and ISFEP, an executive training project which was successfully developed within the Economics Faculty.

As a basic resource, Porto Business School has a teaching staff with lengthy experience in teaching and research, from the University of Porto (Economics, Engineering, Law and Psychology and Educational Sciences Faculties), to which two other teaching categories are added: managers with academic training and solid business careers, and teachers from foreign Universities, namely North American ones (Central Florida, Massachusetts, Miami and New Orleans) and European ones (London Business School and the Business Institute, among others). These connections to similar foreign schools, which have existed since 1988 in some cases, ensure a high level of internationalisation in its activities.

Porto Business School even has the support of a group of companies and other reference organisations with a decisive involvement in the establishment of the School’s management bodies (Board of Directors and Management), and which ensure an effective connection for the School with the Portuguese business world. The involvement of businesses in Porto Business School’s governance model is greatly more extensive than that observed in any other Portuguese Business School.

Porto Business School currently has the following as reference products: an international full-time MBA, The Magellan MBA, and an Executive MBA. Other than these programmes, Porto Business School even offers a set of one year graduate courses, short and mid duration executive programmes, upper management seminars, in-company training programmes and business services (selection and recruitment of qualified workers, and applied research and consultancy activities).
