The Experience

At CATÓLICA-LISBON we care for our students! Each student's development is supervised by experienced professionals because you are special. Students, professors and staff develop a strong sense of community, working together towards common goals. That's why at CATÓLICA-LISBON your experience will be unique. We care about your development and we make sure that day-by-day you enhance your personal and professional skills and get ready for the world.

We identify each individual’s merits and strengths and by doing so helps you find your path, open horizons and unleash your full potential.

Interaction with society, colleagues and the market has become key to our students' development. CATÓLICA-LISBON offers every student the first part of their interactions at the very start of the Program: the Induction Days. Also, the Mentoring Program is designed to create interaction between you and an alumnus so that you can guide your development and deepen your understanding of your career.

However, your student life will be complete if you partner with your colleagues and create projects which understand the business environment or help society. We stimulate and support our students in every project that can enhance student life. You just need an idea and we will happily support you to move forward.

See below details of some programs that you will find at CATÓLICA-LISBON and to which we hope you can add more value and bring more ideas!

Induction Days

At the beginning of every intake we have several events to welcome all new students. The induction activities will help you to get an insight into the CATÓLICA-LISBON spirit. You will have the opportunity to meet all your new colleagues, the professors and the staff.
You will attend a welcome session, Outdoor Activities, and Sport Activities among many others!
