ISEG at a Glance

ISEG was the first professional school established at University of Lisbon. Founded in 1911, as the first Portuguese school for economics and management. 

1911 saw the foundation of two schools: Instituto Superior Técnico (the leading Engineering school in Portugal) and the Instituto Superior de Comércio. These sister schools have benefitted from a close relationship and have developed with some similarities – a strong quantitative and mathematical background which is recognized as a distinctive feature of our faculty and graduates. ISEG boasts the oldest Masters and PhD programs in the areas of management and economics in the country. In 1979, ISEG started postgraduate education with a course in Mathematic Methods for Economics and Business Management.

As of 2013, ISEG and Técnico were integrated with the University of Lisbon, the largest University in the country. Since 2015, degrees in Management, Economics, and Finance are fully taught in English. ISEG is accredited by AACSB and AMBA.

The ISEG MBA led me to think differently and to try different things. 

Because of that I was in a good situation to try new challenges and I embraced a new challenge even before I finished the MBA, I even changed countries.This is something that I would never think of doing if I didn't go through the MBA.
