The Master Degree in Management at FEP, University of Porto, is a 24-month full-time program, the objectives of which are clear from its solid but diversified curriculum, its emphasis on practical and applied knowledge, and its major concern with regard to participants’ personal and social development.

Students can ready themselves for a career at a global level, by pursuing an internship, by undertaking part of their studies abroad, or by networking with colleagues from all over the world and attending seminars with top international speakers organized by FEP’s research centers.

The establishment of a "dual degree agreement” with Kedge Business School – a top management school placed #53 in the Financial Times Master in Management 2016 ranking – and with FEA-USP (University of São Paulo) - the most prestigious Latin American university - together with a series of student exchange protocols established between FEP and other prestigious universities abroad, create important opportunities that students are encouraged to take advantage of.

Further, the MSc in Management program at FEP (U.Porto) is part of the QTEM- Quantitative Techniques for Economics and Management network, facilitating the access by the best students to international study and work abroad within the QTEM Master network that gathers prestigious academic and corporate partners.

The contribution of international students is crucial, something that was evident in the programs previous editions. These students are welcomed by a tutor, who is also a student, to permit them a smooth integration. The International Student Office also provides assistance to international students during their stay. Finally, the University of Porto, a worldwide highly-ranked university, and Porto, a vibrant city full of history, which has a striving social and cultural life, provide a wonderful environment for the pursuit of graduate studies. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Objectives

  • The Master Degree in Management at FEP aims to provide students with solid background knowledge in key management functional areas (financial, strategic, sales, operations and people), plus a more developed knowledge in one or several specialized areas.
  • While theoretical depth is pursued, the emphasis is on the use of concepts in real life situations. The program seeks to adapt to each participant’s life project, by allowing specialization and by providing options that fit different career profiles – e.g. business manager, entrepreneur or academic.
  • Finally, the development of participants’ social skills at several levels is an important aim of the course. All of these objectives are subsumed within the course’s core objectives: i.e. employability and internationalization, or, in other words, the preparation of students for a successful career in business management in a global setting.

Testimonials

"I had a choice between three cities in which to study: London, Berlin, and Porto.My final choice was Porto because of the hospitable spirit of the city and the quality of the university. FEP is one of the best universities in Portugal and my choice has, so far, not disappointed me. The courses provide the skills demanded by the job market and the professors are all experts in their fields. While the Master in Management does not provide a single area specialization, it does teach a multitude of things that will all be useful in our future careers. Overall, my expectations have been far exceeded.” Rens Meerman, Netherlands | Bachelor in Finance and Control | Saxion Hogeschool (Netherlands)
