Universidade Católica Portuguesa and Nova de Lisboa are on the list of the British newspaper Financial Times. The ranking of the best schools for business education was disclosed this Monday.

The economic faculties from Universidade Católica Portuguesa and Nova de Lisboa made it on the list of the best universities in the world, according to the executive training programme ranking from the British newspaper Financial Times, disclosed this Monday.

In the ranking, which combines the analysis on two types of education (open and executive training programs), Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics (CLSBE) comes at 44th place, while Nova School of Business and Economics (NSBE) comes at 57th place.

In a press release, CLSBE highlights they have been a part of FT’s list for the 11th consecutive year and that from a European perspective, they are among the top 20 — and they are also on the top 10 most international schools in Europe. The faculty highlights its partnerships with international institutions such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) or the Carnegie Mellon University.

The dean of the Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics considers the nomination to be “something to be proud of”, which mirrors the “strong bet in internationalization”.
