Program Description

The Master in Business Economics is an international programme offered in English. It is suitable for bachelors in economics, management and engineering with the ambition of becoming top professionals of organisations.

The programme aims that future professionals acquire advanced and cross-cutting knowledge in economics and management and develop analytic and soft skills that allow them to support organisations in their processes of decision-making, innovation, and strategy. It prepares future professionals to work in multidisciplinary and international teams and grasp complex issues, with a critical view and analytical and innovative capacities.

The Master Final Assignment is seen as an opportunity to approach organisations. Internships and projects are oriented to answer research questions of interest and/or solve specific problems of organisations.

The Master in Business Economics offers international exchange experiences with the vast network of universities of the world with which Católica Porto Business School has partnerships.
