Programme Description

The present economic reality is characterized by a very rapid evolution of the external environment in which the companies operate.

In particular, the emergence of new products and technologies, the intensification of global competition and the emergence of public entities seeking to ensure adequate competition between companies and regulate the operation of specific markets. In this context, organizations feel an increasing need for professionals capable of better understanding and reacting to these phenomena.

The Master's Degree in Business Economics and Competition combines a solid academic background, based on a highly qualified faculty, with a strong application component to the national and sectorial reality, including the participation of several professors with outstanding professional insertion related to the course focus (eg Competition Authority, INE, Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of National Defense, CMVM-Securities Market Commission, AICEP-Agency for Investment and Foreign Trade of Portugal, ERSE-Entity Regulating Energy Services , ERSAR-Regulatory Authority of Water and Waste Services, ANACOM-National Communications Authority, among other institutions).
