"I am part of the board of a chain of hotels located in Brazil.
I long wanted to take a course that would allow me to advance in my career. After analysing a number of programmes offered in different countries of the world I ended up opting for EMGH, and I came to attend the Edition offered in Porto.
The Católica Porto Business School's facilities are magnificent, the teachers are highly qualified, but very approachable and the subjects, of great interest, are presented in a pragmatic and dynamic way which leads to the creation of a dialogue environment for comparing experiences and deepen the knowledge. Although I speak for myself, I can add that the class satisfaction level is very high. Coming to Portugal, a country I did not know, to participate in this course, it was an excellent choice. "

“My testimonial begins with a question: Nowadays, what is a good investment? Real estate, stocks, art, gold? As a former student I have no doubt about the answer: The Post graduation Diploma in Hotel Management (EMGH) is the best investment for those who want to embark on an activity in the field of Hospitality, either as an entrepreneur, as a member of board or even to lawyers, economists and consultants who have clients in this field. This programme offered me training at the highest level, providing me with the techniques and tools providing also a network of important contacts. These two components have allowed me to overcome apparent difficulties in new business opportunities. After attending the EMGH in 2010, we are able to accept an ambitious challenge, taking the first Premium Hotel in Porto. After only three years, the Premium Group is already composed of five hotels, across the country. Only such a programme, the quality of teachers and students, offered in the modern Católica Porto Business School premises on the campus of Foz could boost all this rapid evolution. I hope many (and good) investors come to attend the course, because the opportunities are many, and they do not wait ... "

"In my educational and professional background there is clearly a before and an after the completion of my Post-graduate in Hospitality Management at the Católica Porto Business School. The diverse curriculum of the course along with the relevance and practical application of subjects and the quality of teachers are undoubtedly differentiating factors. Above all, they provide basic management tools in the correct analysis, strategy and operational implementation in a hotel or even in any other area in which a careful and dynamic management is of the essence. The empirical certainty stemming from the experience of the myriad of situations we face on a daily basis in a hotel unit is anchored by deep knowledge taught in this course and thus complement decisions, attitudes, actions, and a far more informed strategic vision of the future. It goes up to a higher level of knowledge to which the Catholic University accustomed its students. We move forward to a degree of knowledge, but also to face the challenges with a bolder shape and envision the near medium or far future with acuity and amazing clarity. And the decision may have the weight of a feather or lead, but it will be the most correct, because it will be made on the grounds of a solid and diverse base of knowledge. "
