The Economics course is a comprehensive, cross-curricular programme for a versatile professional career. An approach that draws on critical thinking built on historical learning and past patterns that combines an analytical component.
With strong connections to the social sciences, Economics is a human science that helps to understand individual economic behaviours in society.
The scientific knowledge acquired in the course allows a world view based on economic thinking, economic history, and geo-economics with a solid mathematical underpinning.
It is a course that provides graduates with a general and in-depth knowledge of the world, with the ability to understand organisations integrated into their context. For example, the students can occupy business positions in varied functional areas, public or private organisations, business finance or financial markets, or continue their studies to master's degrees.
Católica Porto Business School has been developing according to a paradigm of demand and quality, being a reference in teaching and research in Portugal.
The teaching and assessment methods, together with the development of scientific and technical skills, still focus on developing soft skills, which are highly valued by the industry.
The teaching model, widely recognised by the business world, prioritises the approach to the companies before the completion of the degree through university-company solid cooperation. In addition, the School promotes internships in reputable companies, which gives students an advantage when stepping into the labour market.
In a highly competitive and dynamic international context like the current one, the Católica Porto Business School encourages the global mobility of students. It motivates them to enjoy the experience of studying temporarily in a foreign university, mainly through the cooperation agreements it has with various universities in Europe, the USA and Asia. It also promotes the completion of summer internships in companies and international institutions.
Católica Porto Business School encourages and promotes the mastery of the English language, with the possibility of completing the degree entirely in English, which allows future managers and economists to be further prepared for global business.
