The Magellan MBA is a full-time 14 month programme that is aimed at fast-tracking professionals that, regardless of their past academic background, seek to develop a career in management with a strong international perspective.

The programme is structured to enable the students to become proficient in general management and well trained in specific functional management areas, such as Marketing, Operations, Finance & Accounting, Organisational Development and International Business. Significant attention is also given to soft skills training throughout the programme, to ensure that managerial knowledge goes hand in hand with the growth of individual skills, such as personal communication, leadership and negotiation.

In The Magellan MBA Programme, international professors use innovative teaching methods to present cutting edge ideas and real business applications. Faculty have extensive experience in management and consulting at organizations around the world.

Each year students attend an international week of training in a renowned business school outside of Portugal. At the end of the programme all students participate in one of the following programmes of their choice: a company internship or a new business project, all two of which test and solidify skills in management.

The first term (October-December) will feature the following core courses: Organisational Behaviour, Economics for Managers, Marketing, Finance I, International Business Economics, Business Ethics. At the same time, students will be introduced to intensive soft skills training that will involve personal development and team management, negotiation skills, career services activities (including mock interviews and career evenings), communication and leadership workshops and seminars with alumni and guests from the School’s extended network.

The International Week
