The academy and the businesses together in the teaching of Management

The academy and the businesses together in the teaching of ManagementThe learning process in the MPhil in Management is developed underlining the linkage between academic excellence and the reality of the business world, including a large set of classes in Seminar format, presenting cases of diverse key organizations across different industries, promoting valuable networking opportunities and enhancing students’ job placement possibilities. The contact with organizations and business practice, in the academic context, advances the development of managerial skills essential to run one’s one firm and/or to make a significant contribution to the business arena, through global, integrated and differentiated understanding of the key functional areas of the firms. 

 

At the forefront of knowledge

The structure of the MPhil in Management was adapted to respond to the demands and challenges that our increasingly global e digital world poses, where the call for new business models and tools is a constant. Aiming to train managers who will make a difference in the firms and organizations, the study plan of the MPhil in Management, contemplates prominent and trendy topics such as: conceptualization, structuring and analysis of social media, the use of business intelligence in management, crowdfunding; venture capital; disruptive open technological innovation, amongst others.   

The course offers 120 ECTs and has two year duration. The classes will be concentrated in year 1, which is divided into 2 semesters each with 30 ECTs. The remaining 60 ECTs are obtained in year 2, when the candidate will focus on a particular management topic in-depth and autonomously, while benefiting from the necessary guidance of dedicated supervisors at UPT. This will be done either via dissertation, or curricular traineeship or project work.
