The Lisbon MBA International Program, M.B.A.

  • Application Deadline
  • 12 months
  • English (book IELTS)
The Lisbon MBA International is a full-time degree in business administration framed in an international environment with a focus on both the academic component and interpersonal competencies that develop strong leaders.


From January through May, you’ll focus on the core skills and knowledge of international business administration through coursework in marketing, organizations, economics, strategy, accounting, and finance.

You will also use this period to begin your journey of self-discovery and development during Friday Forums.

In order to build the foundation towards achieving your career goals, you will attend several workshops and work with our Career Management Center.

We also believe that in order to become a truly global leader and compete at an international level, in addition to being fluent in English, it is very important to have competencies in other languages and for that reason we require that by the end of the program our students have at least a basic practical knowledge of a second language other than English. For international students we offer Portuguese classes which is a fantastic way to learn this language that is the first most widely spoken language in the southern hemisphere and one of the most spoken languages in the world.
