Bachelor in Management
Grab you future.
When I first came to Portugal I was anxious and scared. I didn’t speak the language or know anything about the culture. However, on walking into ISEG all those fears completely disappeared, I was welcomed by many older students who welcomed me as one of their own. The most important lessons I have learned in ISEG is to always be courageous and speak out, never to be shy, and to always take risks in order to achieve your goals and dreams.
