Sogrape Vinhos, SA

The In-company Training Programme was a very rewarding experience both from a professional and personal point of view.

In this time of great change and competitiveness it is important that companies bet on strengthening the skills of the staff members. The In-company Programme has the great advantage of being done in a team, in an informal environment and directed by an highest level faculty and identified with the business world, promoting creativity and a common awareness of best practices adapted to the business, impacting on operational decisions and strategic.

I felt that the In-company Programme helped me reflecting on the relevance of my decisions and options as a team leader but also contributing transversally to the organization with a more current view of management.

Banco Carregosa

Banco Carregosa has developed in collaboration with Católica Porto Business School  a course specifically designed for the training needs of our commercial teams. It was a good time to learn and review concepts. The support provided by this course, with excellent faculty, allowed to maximize the students learning and enrichment. 

After 25 years of professional experience in the financial and banking areas, I consider the experience to be enriching, with a strong impact on strengthening individual confidence for future challenges, in an increasingly complex, competitive and demanding world.

I have strengthened and acquired competencies that I consider crucial for my management / administrative function. It made me look in a different and even more critical way for everything I do and to think better about my goals and achievement.
