The globalised nature of modern business means that companies increasingly seek to recruit managers that possess the specialized international expertise and the necessary skills to perform at a high level in multicultural, global settings.

ISCTE Business School is one of the leading business schools in Portugal and offers you an opportunity to master the skills of international management in a multicultural environment.

The programme is taught in English and is open to internationally oriented students with a Bachelor's degree in the area of Management or with relevant experience in international business. This highly competitive academic programme prepares students to act in global business enterprises and internationally-connected organisations.

Why choose the MIM at IBS

Some of the strengths of the IBS Master's in International Management are:

  • A timetable tailored for students with professional commitments;
  • An intensive and compact programme, lasting one year (plus final project/dissertation);
  • A multicultural study environment with fellow students and a faculty of many different nationalities;
  • Due credit is given both to:

1) Professional interests, through modules aiming at the acquisition of "how to" competences in international settings;

2) More research-oriented interests, through modules and seminars aimed at the acquisition of capabilities for conducting an investigation in the area of international management.

  • "Wideband" programme designed to respond to a vast array of interests and specialities;
  • Experienced international teaching staff; more than 60% of our staff come from abroad;
  • Possibility of participating in optional modules in places such as India and Japan.
  • Possibility of getting a double master degree from some partner universities.


  • Students have the possibility of learning the Portuguese language during the Master. This opens opportunities in some of the more dynamic markets nowadays (Brazil, Angola and others). Portuguese is the language spoken by around 300 million people on all continents.
  • Lisbon offers an exceptional historical heritage and a large variety of cultural and leisure time activities. And, ISCTE Business School is situated close to the heart of Lisbon.
  • Financial advantage over other academic centres in Europe and United States. As the cost of living is below that of other capitals, students will find the time spent in Lisbon free from money concerns.
