ISCTE Business School – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa

Introduction

Message from the Dean

Welcome to the ISCTE Business School.

IBS is a pioneer School in the teaching of management and business sciences, and the first where this was an autonomous area as opposed to a subject taught within the field of economics. The links to the corporate world are a distinctive feature of our School. Since the outset, IBS has relied on the support of invited faculty from the business world whose collaboration has provided valuable input for our curricula. It is therefore not surprising that, regardless of the economic environment, successive generations of students have enjoyed employability rates close to 100%. Even more importantly, companies recognise the high quality of the training given to IBS students and this confidence is boosted by the volume and excellence of the research produced by our faculty members and researchers. Internationalisation is the second distinguishing feature of our School. Not only does IBS teach courses in partnerships with universities from Asia, Africa and South America but, within the Portuguese university framework, IBS has also pioneered the setting-up of a support office for Erasmus students. This model, which works in conjunction with universities around the world, has attracted so many foreign students that we have been unable to attain full reciprocity despite the growing number of IBS students who benefit from a training experience abroad. The ability to work in an international setting is clearly demonstrated by the number of Alumni working abroad, many of whom hold leadership positions in multinational companies. Innovation and entrepreneurship are the third distinctive feature of our School. Pedagogical innovation led to the updating of syllabuses as well as the introduction of new teaching methods; these include the development of case studies and software support for management and distance learning instruments. It is not by chance that many reference texts in the various management fields have been written by IBS faculty. Lastly, special mention must be made of the close relationship that IBS faculty and staff develop with our students and the concern for their well-being as this is a decisive factor for the high academic performance of our students. The intellectual rigour in the classroom, the promotion of team work and the exposure to real case studies allow IBS to create value for our students, and guarantee they make positive contribution to the development of the national and global community.
