Even after 6 years of attending the program, the concepts acquired with a highly skilled teaching staff are still quite present. The binomial teaching staff - participants, results in an excepcional training program, essential to all those who wish to acquire transversal knowledge about managing a company.

It was a really interesting and rewarding experience to go back to the University after years creating and managing a group of companies in the agri-food sector. I was able to update knowledge e share experiences with the teaching staff and colleagues. I learned a lot.

It was an excellent group, with a strong bond between everybody including the teaching staff and even the University. These programs are addictive to everyone who enjoys and is open to learning and I felt compelled to enrol into other programs.

Another added value is the conveyed message of “role model” inside our organization that motivated several executives from our group to enrol in CATÓLICA-LISBON in order to refresh their skills.

The content of the program is complete and comprehensive, the teaching staff is composed of experts on the subjects taught and CATÓLICA-LISBON is indeed a Great School of Knowledge.

I’m grateful for CATÓLICA-LISBON’s availability in creating a now established partnership with our group for specific training programs.

My enrolment in PAGE came as a consequence of a number of formerly successful Católica Lisbon’s programs, and aimed at updating my knowledge in Management areas. The broad contents served as a reminder of some concepts as well as acquire new ones, to understand the current context of Business Management and to foresee the future, the trends, the challenges and opportunities, always based on a faculty of excellence that challenges us throughout the program. It is also an equally powerful networking tool, given the openness and availability of all participants to share both personal and professional experiences, that enrich us. It will, without a doubt, have a positive impact in my professional career.

In an extremely competitive market, where the ability to adapt quickly is an increasingly differentiating element, PAGE is undoubtedly the right choice for those who want to increase and develop their management skills in a real-life scenario, through a recognized training/educational executive program.

The rigor and professionalism of the teaching staff and the way the program structure is managed allowed me to explore, develop and recycle a set of skills and knowledge, not only directly applicable to the management area, but also to other complementary areas, due to the synergy between the PAGE program and the various companies we had the opportunity to contact with directly. Also worth noting, was all the personal and professional enrichment, thanks to the positive broadening of the (contact) network enhanced by the learning process and the sharing of experiences.”

In the so-called Digital Era, knowledge as a continuous, flexible and evolutionary learning has established itself as a true must-have for all professionals who aspire to meet the diverse demands of their organizations. With this in mind, I decided to look for an executive program containing a broad curriculum, with an operational profile, but which was also strategic and forward-looking, where both my professional and personal growth were possible. Given I had already participated in the PARH, at the emblematic Católica Lisbon School, I considered PAGE as the most righteous choice, due to the richness of the topics addressed, the faculty members’ experience and, most importantly, for the resulting network. For this reason, it was with great satisfaction, that I encountered a fantastic group of colleagues with whom I continue to have the privilege to connect to, and that made this experience utterly memorable.

Ao longo da minha vida profissional tenho procurado manter-me bem formado e atualizado, recorrendo sempre às melhores Fontes e Instituições. Foi nesse contexto que me inscrevi no PAGE da CATÓLICA-LISBON. Por já ter frequentado anteriormente a UCP, as minhas expectativas da instituição, do corpo docente e até do próprio programa eram muito elevadas, razão pela qual foi ainda mais gratificante verificar que a experiência ultrapassou a expectativa.

Não é só o saber, mas acima de tudo o saber-fazer, a experiência, a internacionalização e a capacidade de transmissão de todos estes atributos pelo corpo docente, que fazem a diferença.

O networking desenvolvido ao longo do programa também resultou de facto numa mais-valia, fruto do elevado nível dos participantes, docentes bem como da atenção que a CATÓLICA-LISBON atribuiu a esse aspecto.

Fiquei com vontade de repetir alguns módulos, fazer mais programas e até parcerias entre o nosso grupo e uma das melhores Business School da atualidade. A CATÓLICA-LISBON!

In that sense, CATÓLICA-LISBON is a leading international reference, featuring a prestigious and highly qualified faculty, who have always encouraged learning and discussion of ideas.

At this moment, when we are experiencing deep changes in management and in the search for acquiring new skills and improve others, and given the excellent reputation that the school has and the experiences shared by former participants, PAGE was the (only) option. The expectation was initially very high, and through the whole PAGE program, those expectations were never defrauded, either by the educational, functional and engaging way the contents were presented by the different professors, but also by the methodological and conceptual terms within the different modules. If it was worth it? For sure. Would I do it again? Without a doubt.

PAGE gives us the possibility of not only, share experiences and knowledge with participants and teachers by extending our network of contacts (networking), but above all gives us an updated knowledge with the best practices on the most diverse topics, including, finance, economics, competition, management, leadership, etc... that for someone who comes from a very specific course allows to open horizons and be able to make decisions in a more rational and conscious way.

Attending a course like the PAGE program is a way of doing a conceptual check of our thought process, ensuring a more structured and vibrant dimension. It was a gratifying experience to return to studying and during the sessions at the CATÓLICA-LISBON the enthusiasm between professors and students reminded me of my years in college. The CATÓLICA-LISBON Executive Training programs make us feel at home in a serious but informal environment. I am proud to say that the CATÓLICA-LISBON is now also my college!

PAGE was a very important program and I believe that was an added value to my professional performance. The content of the program is useful not only for those already working in the field of management that want to keep up to date, but also for those who want to acquire new knowledge.
It was a wise choice, not only by the faculty of the program, as well as the topics covered and the credibility of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa.

Since I have a background in civil engineering, I gained a lot by attending the PAGE program, which has helped me in terms of my activities while administering the company. I quickly applied the technical management knowledge acquired during the course and in some cases it helped to better understand and find solutions for the situations that arose. The environment in the classroom sessions and the relationships with the professors were excellent. We had a fantastic group of colleagues and we have maintained strong ties. In short, I have had a frankly positive experience at all levels during this time at the CATÓLICA-LISBON.

PAGE is without a doubt an extraordinary program, very comprehensive and with a very competent teaching staff. Having studied engineering, but with a professional career associated with management, attending PAGE allowed me not only to consolidate previously acquired knowledge but also to gain a new set of concepts, methods and tools that will undoubtedly change my professional and personal life.

It was a very enrichening experience with which I had the opportunity to know an excelent school, new people and share unique moments.

Congratulations to Católica.

In an increasingly demanding market, investment in training and professional development allow us to ensure differentiation of any business. PAGE allowed me to deepen my knowledge in management that was outside the scope of my degree (human resource management) and throughout my career was becoming essential to my activity performance. The exchange of experiences with teachers and students not only allowed a clear improvement of my professional performance but also gave me the encouragement to change and look for more challenges.

Participating in the Advanced Executive Program in Marketing was one of the best decisions I made both personally and professionally. Their updated and relevant curriculum for today’s Marketing Managers, with experienced faculty members and with great sharing of knowledge amongst fellow colleagues, makes me feel prepared to face the market’s most demanding and diversified challenges. PAME is therefore the best program for those who want to deepen their knowledge in Marketing, in any business sector.

Having a prior education in engineering and currently with management duties, betting on the PAGE program aimed to develop my knowledge across areas such as management, finance and marketing. It was an excellent decision. The theory and practice; indoor and outdoor; the human factor, and the networking with other professionals helped me develop a way of thinking, acting and strive. I now grasp the rewards in my daily life. I acquired what I was looking for, thanks to a highly qualified faculty, with practical experience in the corporate world. Life-long friendships have been forged. I would bet on CATÓLICA LISBON’s PAGE program again!
