The Economics Department of the School of Economics and management is a national reference, both at the research and teaching levels. The majority of its faculty graduated from excellent European and North American universities, such as Oxford University, London School of Economics, Cornell University, Tinbergen Institute, European University Institute, among several others.
Our research focus is has led to a great number of scientific articles published in top economics journals. As a consequence of this investment, our largest research unit received the highest grade, “Excellent”, by the National Science Foundation. Students who aim to follow research careers benefit from this environment. Recently, we have had students entering in doctoral programs in places such as Oxford, LSE, or University of North Carolina – Chappel Hill. The high quality of our research is also reflected in a number of consultancy and applied research projects hired both of private firms and public institutions, both national and international.
The Economics Department offers several degrees, which include two undergraduate (Economics and International Business), five masters (with different specializations) and one Ph.D program in Economics. The quality of our programs is reflected in the professional success of our past students, who have found careers in both national and international official organizations, such as the Bank of Portugal or the World Bank, or in the private sector, including several multinationals.
Hopefully our correspond to your expectations
