Thursday, September 14, 2023 - 19:09

Another year began at CPBS, with an intense week dedicated exclusively to new students. From the 7th to the 13th of September, Empower Week 23/24 took place, an opportunity for everyone arriving at the School for the first time to get to know each other better and discover their new home, with various activities and convivial moments.

On the first day, some current students accompanied the new students in all activities. The afternoon of the 7th was filled with various team-building activities and a tour of the entire Foz Campus. In the end, there was also time to get to know the various student organizations. And to leave messages for the future.

During this week, at Empower Lunch, new students at Católica Porto Business School also had the opportunity to continue strengthening ties and socializing with students from other years, and with some teachers and collaborators.

For Helena Correia, Deputy Director for Undergraduate Education, “Arriving at our School marks a very important moment, it is the beginning of a journey of permanent connection. Now they are undergraduate students and will be alumni within three years. They may also be master's or MBA students. They may become researchers or teachers. They will be able to collaborate in many ways with our School. Because the connection to Católica Porto Business School is no longer lost.”

Rui Soucasaux Sousa, Dean of Católica Porto Business School, also highlighted “new students will have classes with a faculty of recognised quality, in an international environment and with a strong connection to practice. And, above all, with the guarantee that they will be highly sought after in the job market, a clear sign of the excellence of Católica Porto Business School across all its activities."
