The double degree has a very limited number of places and candidates must hold an excellent academic and scientific curriculum to have access to this programme. The selection of candidates is made, at start, by Católica Porto Business School, but candidates must also comply with the standards normally demanded by Lancaster University Management School:
- a final bachelor average mark of equal or above 14 points taken at a prestigious higher education institution.
- an average mark of 14 points during the first year of the double degree at Católica Porto Business School (to be able to move forward to Lancaster University Management School in the second year).
- advanced proficiency of the English language, proven by IELTS 7.0 ( with a minimum of 6.0 in each element), TOEFL iBT 100 or Pearson 70, which must be presented during the first year after admission in the programme (at Católica Porto Business School).
Applications to a Masters at Católica Porto Business School are permanently open. Católica Porto Business School and Lancaster University Management School meet three times a year (March, July and September) to assess applications. After the meeting, candidates are informed about the decision and the following stages.

Graduates from different scientific areas can apply to the Masters of the Católica Porto Business School.
The application process to the Masters of the Católica Porto Business School must contain elements that provide evidence of the academic and scientific competence of the candidates, as well as the command of the English language. The GMAT test is valued in the selection process to assess the academic and scientific skills
Applicants will be selected based on the following criteria:
- Academic and scientific curriculum
- Degree classification
- Professional experience or research
English language competence requirement
Proof of this requirement is made through an official level B2 diploma of The Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of References for Languages, or equivalent.
Admitted students who do not meet the English language proficiency requirement have access to a diagnostic test available at the Católica Porto Business School in the respective application stage.
The English diagnostic test is an examination equivalent to level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference (upper-intermediate) .The test lasts for approximately 3 hours and the structure of the exam aims to assess the following skills: Listening Comprehension, Grammar, Vocabulary, Reading and Writing. For a better insight into the structure of the diagnostic test, model tests may be consulted on the website of Cambridge Michigan and the candidates may select the test that corresponds to the ECCE - Examination for the Certificate of Competence in English.
- Listening Comprehension
- Reading and Writing
The graduates in different fields of economics and management may be required attendance and approval in intensive base preparation courses in these areas - Homogenisation Modules. These courses are offered by the Católica Porto Business School in August / September, during the weeks preceding the start of the lessons.
It is recommended, therefore, to the Applicants under these conditions that use one of the first two stages of application since the third phase will not allow access to Homogenisation modules.
