The Lisbon MBA Part Time – the MBA of Católica-Lisbon and Nova SBE – achieved, for the first time, a position in the Financial Times Executive MBA’s ranking, and is the only Portuguese MBA to be featured in this list. This entry is mainly explained  by the career progress of alumni that includes a post-MBA salary increase of 47%. Other factors valued in the ranking are the diversity and quality of faculty and research of both universities.

Anabela Possidónio, Executive Director of The Lisbon MBA, commented: “It is a huge source of pride for us to have both programs in the Financial Times rankings, the worldwide reference. It is a fantastic result.”

Francisco Veloso, Dean of Católica-Lisbon, stated: “This result reflects the success of a strategy of excellence that has been implemented and that allows high visibility of the Lisbon MBA abroad and undisputed leadership in the country.”

For Daniel Traça, Dean of Nova SBE: “This is further evidence that the Portuguese higher education is increasing as a reference in the world and can be a strong asset in the valuation of our exports and our country. We pride ourselves on understanding that in the current global ever-changing world it was necessary to join forces in order to bring you the best MBA programs worldwide.”

The Financial Times ranking is considered  a worldwide reference in this market. Tables are prepared based on criteria that range from the salary three years after the MBA, to the percentage of women among faculty. For drawing up the lists, the British Daily uses online questionnaires made to Schools and Alumni.
