economics & finance

Coming from London, moving to Lisbon was a big change for me. I had never lived in Portugal, and I was worried about my level of Portuguese. However, when I arrived at CLSBE on my first day, everyone was so kind and welcoming that I immediately felt comfortable. The International Program truly lives up to its name; everyone has unique backgrounds, and many languages are spoken, so it is easy to integrate socially even if you do not speak the native language. What I admire most about CLSBE is the work-to-social-life balance. It means that I can get a great education and still have time to do the things I love on the side.

Why this program?

The International Bachelor  in Economics & Finance has a dual mission: to examine the behavior of the economy and its relationship to business and government, and to study the funding and investment needs of corporations, individuals and institutions. The primary goal of this prestigious program, designed by a top-ranked Business School (accredited by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS), is to establish a solid foundation in the applied and theoretical areas of international and domestic finance, business and economics. As an economics/finance major, you’ll develop the analytical and quantitative skills needed for corporate and individual financial management and economic modeling and forecasting.

This bachelor’s degree is taught using a unique methodology that combines (a) Fundamentals that will provide you an in-depth understanding of the principles that underpin business dynamics, (b) Broadening Options that allow you to choose courses from a wide range of areas and subjects to explore the world beyond business, and (c) Practicals to help you apply what you learn to real-world cases and scenarios to ensure your academic journey develops smoothly.

With The International Bachelor in Business Administration I will challenge myself to explore creative approaches and new ways of thinking. / I will be immersed in an international environment, opening me up to the transformative power of a multicultural setting. / I will understand the major concepts and theories of economics and finance. / Studying the humanities will help me understand the world around me and develop the skills to maneuver within that world. / By learning and experimenting with the latest technologies, I will be at the vanguard of the digital world, positioning myself to become a successful international business professional. / I will find the perfect balance between academic learning and real-life business practice. / I will monitor my own performance through a personalized dashboard which provides me with an overview of my learning journey as I progress as a business student. / I will benefit from the The Corporate Mentorship Program, which creates opportunities for me to build relationships with senior level business professionals (volunteer mentors) from various industries, and conditions for me to work on specific skills, find the career path that motivates me, and learn about business functions and industries directly from the people who are already there.
