During the summer, as one of the alternatives for your action learning period, you may choose to integrate an International Lab in Brazil, China or Mexico, giving you an unique knowledge and experience in these emerging markets.

The International Labs provide an intensive multicultural experience, where students from The Lisbon MBA work with MBA students from Insper in São Paulo, Fudan University in Shanghai or EGADE in Mexico City.

Students will team up for 2 months and work together on a consulting project for a company with a project in the Brazilian, Chinese or Mexican markets. Projects kick-off in July and feature an intensive two-week preparation phase in one of the geographies. The teams will then work virtually during the implementation phase which involves research, data analysis and the development of proposals. In August the team meets again, either in Portugal, Brazil, China or Mexico and presents their findings to the company’s senior management team.

Every year, a different host company selects a business project to be developed and analysed.
