Carlos Moura Guedes

CEO

Hotel Group: City Country & Boutique Hotels

I will begin my testimony quoting Miguel Torga: "There are many ways to glory. The key is to have genius.”

Thus, the Post-Graduation in Hospitality Management of Católica Porto Business School is the fundamental way to get the "genius" in the hotel area. It is the best "way" in the face of "so many paths" that theoretically would lead to the same objective, but in which the exercise is diluted in the schematization of several models, sketches and theorems without recourse to the fundamental basis: the practice.

It was this "path" I chose for my postgraduate education, because comparing with "other ways", this one had everything I wanted: a School of Excellence; a faculty, also of excellence and a curricular and programmatic structure adapted to reality of the hotel sector needs.

My "path" throughout this program has become reality, lived experiences, theories, theorems and models, but above all and more important, the passing of the Faculty testimony who have extensive experience in hotel business. It was from these experiences with the excellent faculty and the coexistence with my colleagues, many of them from the hotel area, who I learned, lived models, replicated these methods, models and experiences to my activity as Hotel Manager.

I will end my testimony with a reflection that has always encouraged me and on justify my choice for Católica Porto Business School: If we do not seek perfection, we will never achieve excellence.
