The Católica Business Schools Alliance is a strategic alliance founded by the Católica Porto Business School and Católica Luanda Business School in 2012, after the positive experience of the MBA Atlantic and it intends to further this cooperation work, extending it to new programmes and partners in the Portuguese-speaking world. Anchored in a joint project that takes advantage of complementarity and existing diversity among partners, the alliance's ambition is to build a global network of business schools to become a benchmark for business education in the world of the Portuguese language.
By integrating schools with a wealth of experience and strong presence in each of the local markets, the alliance also ranks as a privileged platform to establish and promote links between business agents and managers in various geographies and thus constituting itself as a technology and knowledge transfer chamber among a very wide network facilitating cooperation projects among international economy.
With its formalisation, the Católica Business Schools Alliance welcomes the Atlantic MBA programme, reinforcing its role as an anchor programme in building this partnership. The Alliance welcomes, too, a set of programmes offered in an open regime at the Catholic University of Angola, as well as several customised programmes for companies such as Sonangol and Standard Bank.
