In a fast-paced, highly dynamic and competitive environment, it is crucial to be one step ahead of everyone else. Being able to anticipate the consequences of the alternative choices faced by a company is key to building sustainable competitive advantage.

The Master in Economics of Business and Strategy was designed to enable students to successfully grasp and tackle this dynamic environment, either as managers or researchers.

Students are provided foundations in economic theory and a powerful set of cutting-edge analytical tools, allowing them to effectively solve real business situations.

A strong emphasis is given to entrepreneurship, innovation, internationalization and incentive-design as essential tools for analyzing new market dynamics and corporate performance. Students are required to understand the current world economy and to predict the economic trends that may prevail.

The program draws on the expertise of the University of Porto faculty, as well as on the unique perspectives of experts and successful managers. It also builds on the synergies of FEP’s strong relationships with corporations in order to give students a full perspective on how strategic thinking is a fundamental tool to thrive in the current business environment.

Attending this Master is also an opportunity to live in and enjoy Porto, a city recognized by its history, culture, architecture and food, but also identified as one of the most vibrant economic centers in Europe.

We invite you to take full advantage of the opportunity to be at the forefront of strategic thinking.

“Contemporary reality distinguishes itself by constant change and uncertainty, what impacts the entrepreneurial ecosystem. The Master in Economics of Business and Strategy prepares its students to be on the forefront of change, supplying them with unique tools which enable to analyse reality through multiple lenses. From this experience, that is still beginning, I emphasize the strong alliance between theoretical and practical components, an aspect so essential to be a decision maker in this world I am describing. Furthermore, I excel the quality and readiness of FEP’s faculty members, who permanently ask us to be critical thinkers and know how to “think outside the box”, never forgetting the economic and strategic rational. This master is positively surpassing my expectations and is the right choice for those who search for challenges and an unique sustainable competitive advantage.”

“I chose the Master in Economics of Business and Strategy because I was looking for a programme of study able to teach me a wide range of tools that will allow me to better understand the economic environment and improve my decision-making processes. I decided to leave my home country because I wanted to face an experience outside Italy and because I was aware that FEP is a good-quality university. Here, I found a very challenging programme that requires much effort. The professors have a strong knowledge and encourage us to give our best, but they, also, show great willingness to help us, clarifying issues and replying to our questions. This Master represents an excellent opportunity to have an edge in the job market. I recommend this Master to everyone interested in having a full vision about economic mechanisms.”
