The ISEG MBA never fails to draw international students to ISEG Lisbon every year.

In this programme, students focus on five “Strategic Streams” besides traditional MBA core areas: Global Futures, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Technology Disruption, Design & Agility, and Sustainability & Governance.

On the Global Futures stream, students get to explore topics such as responsible enterprise where they’ll review the role business leaders play in shaping economies, industries and organisations.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) and the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies (CIFS) are strategic partners of this programme.

The ISEG MBA is a highly immersive experience. Expect real-world decision-making in the most dynamic entrepreneurial ecosystem Silicon Valley, thanks to the business school’s partnership with the University of San Francisco.
