Porto Business School


Porto Business School

Porto Business School is the Business School of the University of Porto, the largest Portuguese University. With more than 20 years of experience in teaching graduate courses and advanced executive management training. The EFMD and UNICON membership and the AMBA accreditation is a statement of the high quality level of our programmes.

As a basic resource, Porto Business School has a teaching staff with extensive experience in teaching and research, from the University of Porto (drawn from the Departments of Economics, Engineering, Law and Psychology and Educational Sciences), to which two other teaching categories are added: managers with academic training and solid business careers, and Visiting teachers from foreign Universities, namely from North American and Europe. These connections to international schools, which have existed since 1988 in some cases, enhance the high level of internationalisation of Porto Business School's courses. Currently, Porto Business School has agreements and has been offering joint-programmes with well established business schools such as Rotterdam School of Management, London Business School, Instituto de Empresa and Fundação Dom Cabral among several others.

Porto Business School  also has the support of a group of more than twenty seven large companies and other relevant organisations with a strong involvement in the establishment of the School’s management bodies (Board of Directors and Management), which ensures an effective connection between the School and the Portuguese and international business worlds. This participation of corporations in Porto Business School' governance model is a highly distinctive factor of the School. 

Porto Business School currently has its full-time MBA (The Magellan MBA) and Executive MBA as reference products but also offers a large set of one year post-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) both to private corporations and public organizations.


---- We are the only business school in Portugal to receive full accreditation for both its Executive and full-time MBA programmes from AMBA (Association of MBAs). Also, TheMagellan MBA is also one of only seven full-time MBA programmes offered in the Iberian Peninsula to be accredited by AMBA.

----We are members of AACSB, EFMD and UNICON, organisations that recognize the quality of our  programmes.
