It focus on activities ranging from the sciences of economics to business administration and political science and international relations, and other related sciences to these areas. It has been streamlining itself while: an "Erudite" School, that produces and disseminates scientific knowledge at the highest level; a "Cosmopolitan" School, by the multiplicity and richness of its teaching projects; and, a Proactive School, due to its ability to project itself into the future, thereby providing education to experts who outshine within the corporate sector fabric.
Currently, EEG relies upon a portfolio of over 100 Universities whilst unfolding a wide multiculturalism, distributed throughout Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia.
EEG accounts for approximately 2500 students (44% of which in graduate programmes). It is widely recognised for the quality of its research: it integrates 3 Research Units, one of which achieved a maximum rating of “Excellent" by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT).
Our undergraduate and graduate programmes, combined with over 100 initiatives for the strengthening of soft skills, provide one of the highest rates of national employment and fully justify the total filling of our annual vacancies. The strong demand is due to a young faculty, of whom 95% hold PhD Degrees awarded by universities such as Oxford, Warwick, Lancaster, Essex, Cornell or the London School of Economics, among others.
In terms of its interaction with society, EEG promotes the inclusion of students and graduates in various organisations and develops projects of applied research, as well as training services targeted to the needs of business/technical professionals thus costumising its products.
The 27 specialised training courses in our portfolio, as well as the 4 courses designed for Senior Public Administration Professionals, and the Executive Training promoted by Minho-Exec, represent EEG's endeavour to yield scientific knowledge at the service of the community thus bridging the academia and the economic tissue.
