Service Management promotes career opportunities in classical organizations providing services as well as in industrial companies with relevant service components.
Specialization in Business Analytics promotes career opportunities for emerging functions of 'business analyst' or 'data scientist', which have been the subject of growing demand.
Specialization in Management Control promotes career opportunities in prominent positions in the planning process, monitoring, and strategy implementation (for example, controller or financial management).
The Masters in Management will work with a daytime group and a post-work regime one, in Portuguese and in English, according to the following table:
