Four Portuguese Master’s Degrees Rated among the Best in the World

Written By Manuel Poças

According to the latest ranking released by the Financial Times, four Master’s degrees from four different Portuguese universities now rank in the top 55.

This annual ranking evaluates the best Master’s degrees in Finance in the world based on 18 indicators subdivided into three dimensions: alumni career progress, diversity and international experience, and research and carbon footprint.

Out of the 65 schools mentioned, four are from Portugal: Nova School of Business and Economics, from the Nova University of Lisbon, (7th), Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics, from the Catholic University of Portugal (16th), ISEG, from the University of Lisbon (30th), and Porto Business School, from the University of Porto (55th).

Out of the four Portuguese schools, only one did not rank higher compared to last year. The top Portuguese school, Nova SBE, has been consistently improving year by year. Católica Lisbon also achieved its highest ever ranking this year, after dropping four places last year. ISEG dropped four places, and Porto Business School made it back on the list after being left out last year.

Note that, out of the four Portuguese schools, only one is completely private – Católica. Nova SBE is both public and private, while the remaining two on the list – the University of Lisbon and the University of Porto – ISEG and Porto Business School – are public.

When questioned about the results, all schools stated that, while they are happy with the results, there is still room for improvement.
