The Lisbon MBA Community
The Lisbon MBA Alumni embrace the spirit of community and are at the heart of our endeavors, bringing together all graduates of The Lisbon MBA and its predecessors’ MBA programs from Católica-Lisbon and Nova SBE.
Although located in several geographies, our alumni are close to the schools and participate regularly in The Lisbon MBA activities, not only inspiring current students, but also refreshing the knowledge with updated management techniques and solutions, making the most out of a powerful network around the world.
Sometimes we need to get inspired by others’ milestones in order to break new ground.
The Lisbon MBA Alumni are chasing their dreams. They have changed careers, they have successfully started their own businesses, they have become better leaders, strongly prepared to tackle organizational challenges and ready to empower others. Take a close look and be inspired by their journeys.
