Business Schools Ranking in Portugal

Western Europe

Higher education in Portugal is divided into two main subsystems, university and polytechnic education, and it is provided in autonomous public universities, private universities, public or private university institutes, polytechnic institutions and higher education institutions of other types. The university system has a strong theoretical basis and is highly research-oriented; the non-university system provides a more practical training and is profession-oriented. Degrees in some fields such as medicine, law, natural sciences, economics, psychology or veterinary are university. Other fields like engineering, technology, management, education, agriculture, sports, or humanities are found both in university and polytechnic systems. Nursing, preschool education, accounting technician, or health care technician degrees, are only offered in the polytechnic system. Private higher education institutions cannot operate if they are not recognized by the Ministry of Education. Access is regulated by the same procedures as those for state higher education institutions. The two systems of higher education (university and polytechnic) are linked and it is possible to transfer from one to the other by extraordinary competition. It is also possible to transfer from a public institution to a private one and vice-versa. Admission to public university programmes are often more demanding and selective than to their equivalent in public polytechnic and private institutions. Many specific university institutions and degrees are also regarded as more prestigious and reputed than their peers from the polytechnic system or from certain less notable university institutions.
