ISEG stands out in executive education, with the entry of the open and customised programmes directly into the European top 35. The ISEG MBA is also highlighted, with the 62nd position.
This ranking lists the best European business schools. The Financial Times ranking of the best European Business Schools lists a total of 95 higher education institutions based on the overall scores that each school obtained in each ranking of programmes in which it participates, namely in the ranking of MBA, Executive Education, Masters in Management and Executive MBA.
Portugal is in the top 3 of the best represented European countries in this ranking, only surpassed by France and the United Kingdom. This result reflects a growing investment in the training of managers in Portugal, which will be a decisive factor for the competitiveness of the Portuguese economy.
For João Duque, Dean of ISEG, "After ISEG's debut in the Executive Education ranking and the consolidation of the position of the Masters in Finance in the Masters in Finance ranking, this entry in the European Business Schools ranking is excellent news which confirms the remarkable path that ISEG has taken in terms of quality and internationalisation of teaching and research".
"At the beginning of my current mandate as Dean, the legacy of ISEG's growing international reputation gives me added responsibility. We are committed to consolidating the effort the School has made to offer the best education to students, based on a culture of innovation and excellence and on the internationalisation of the Masters and Executive Training, with the aim of attracting the best students, in Portugal and worldwide".
