Course Details | Católica Porto Business School

Message from the Director

As its name implies, it is a generalist programme that addresses in an integrated and systematic way the most relevant issues of management. It is intended preferably to boards with higher education in other areas of knowledge or even without higher education, performing management functions in their organisations. The General Management Course uses a very pragmatic approach and strong adhesion to the reality of our businesses. To this purpose, there is the great contribution of the quality of Católica faculty which consists of teacher who, because they interact a lot with businesses, apply what they teach and, therefore, very effectively articulate the theory and its application.

I opted for the General Management Course of Católica Porto Business School, in the perspective of reviving some subjects, updating concepts related to my education and also to my professional career. I think it was a very positive bet, since the General Management Course contemplates a comprehensive and complete training plan in Management several areas, which allowed me to acquire knowledge in business areas in which I do not have daily contact (operations, human resources, marketing), as well as, consolidate knowledge, deepen new approaches, tools and methods that have enriched my professional performance. In addition, the faculty has an high degree of experience, both formative and business, which allows participants to take practical approaches that are very enriching. These are even more relevant because the course has participants from diverse professional careers, also fostering a very positive knowledge and exchange contacts. I also emphasize the professionalism and commitment of the entire team of Católica Porto Business School. Overall, I congratulate the school for being able to put together a successful training offer.
