Step 1 - Start your application online

Choose the programs you wish to apply for in our platform.

Upload the required documents *
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Motivation letter
  • University Transcripts of Records confirming academic qualifications [English or Portuguese]. For application purposes we do not require a formal certificate from your school, but we do require a non-official document with all the courses you have attended and respective grades [you may extract this information from your students’ personal webpage].

* Please note that all documents must be in English and submitted in PDF and/or JPEG format.

Step 2 - Pay the application fee

After you have filled your application and uploaded the required documents, you will need to pay the non-refundable application fee. Please note that your application will not be considered completed and therefore will not be analyzed by the jury until the application fee is settled.

Step 3 - Additional information

The Admissions Jury may request an interview.

Graduates with a non quantitative degree, must submit the GMAT/GRE result or take the CATÓLICA-LISBON Internal Admission Test. Find out more about this test.

Step 4 - Final decision

The Admissions Jury reviews your application and makes a final decision.

Please note that:

  • the Admissions Jury’s decision is final and conclusive
  • regardless of the outcome of your application, you will receive a personalized e-mail from our Marketing & Admissions Office, which will mention your name, as well as the final decision of the jury.

Students are not allowed to apply more than once per Intake (double applications will not be considered and related application fees will not be refunded).

About fees

Please note that application fee, CATÓLICA-LISBON internal admission test fee and enrollment fee are non-refundable.

About your Undergraduate Diploma/Certificate

Upon admission, MSc students are required to present an original or an authenticated copy of their Undergraduate Diploma/Certificate at the Central Administrative Services (located on the ground floor of the Library building).

According to Portuguese and EU regulations, continuing a MSC program depends on providing adequate proof of having previously completed studies in an Undergraduate program. Failure to do so creates an illegal situation for both students and the school. It is therefore of utmost importance that you present your Undergraduate Diploma/Certificate at the Central Administrative Services. This document should not be mistaken with the Undergraduate Grades Transcript requested by the Marketing & Admissions Office for application purposes or by the Student Affairs Office for course waiving purposes.
