IBS is an internationally accredited business school that pioneered the teaching of management and business sciences in Portugal. The distinctive features of the school, namely strong links to the corporate world and qualified and experienced faculty who brings intellectual rigour and practical focus to both teaching and research, builds its growing reputation at home and abroad.
IBS is committed to develop innovative and socially responsible business leaders with a global perspective. Employability levels close to 100% reveal companies’ recognition of the high quality of the training given to IBS students. A large number of alumni are working abroad, many of whom holding leadership positions in multinational companies.
A front-runner in the setting-up of a support office for Erasmus students, IBS has always strived to develop international degrees and partnerships, including double degree programmes. The international environment in the campus and the support given to incoming and outgoing students has made the school progressively more attractive to students who want to complement their education with a training experience abroad.
Special mention should be made of the close relationship that IBS faculty and staff develop with our students and the concern for their well-being as this is a decisive factor for their high academic performance. The intellectual rigour in the classroom, the promotion of teamwork and the exposure to real case studies allow IBS to create value for our students, and guarantee they make a positive contribution to the development of the national and global community.
