In a fast-paced, highly dynamic and competitive environment, it is crucial to be one step ahead of everyone else. Being able to anticipate the consequences of the choices faced by a company is key to building a sustainable competitive advantage.

The Master in the Economics of Business and Strategy was designed to enable students to successfully grasp and tackle this dynamic environment as managers or researchers.

Students are provided foundations in economic theory and a powerful set of cutting-edge analytical tools, allowing them to solve real business situations effectively.

A strong emphasis is given to entrepreneurship, innovation, internationalization, and incentive design as essential tools for analyzing new market dynamics and corporate performance. Students must understand the current world economy and predict the economic trends that may prevail.

The program draws on the University of Porto faculty's expertise and on the unique perspectives of experts and successful managers. It also builds on the synergies of FEP’s strong relationships with corporations to give students a full perspective on how strategic thinking is a fundamental tool to thrive in the current business environment.

Attending this Master's is also an opportunity to live in and enjoy Porto, a city recognized for its history, culture, architecture, and food. It is also identified as one of Europe's most vibrant economic centres.

We invite you to take full advantage of the opportunity to be at the forefront of strategic thinking.
