Director: João Vilas-Boas
The Master in Management of Services and Technology (MMST) is an unique advanced educational programme in Technology and Operations Management (TOM) that focuses on both industry and service domains. This programme aims at developing modern, updated, proactive, accountable and socially responsible managers, specifically focused on business operations. Graduates are prepared to excel, to lead, to learn and to become ethical entrepreneurs in any international arena. They might also pursue a career in research by attending the PhD of this line of studies in TOM, where three independent cycles of studies interact and are integrated to extend the previous one.
Finally, the programme promotes both students and its own growth.The MMST has currently two double degrees, one with the Università degli Studi di Palermo and, the other one, with the KEDGE Business School.
ISCTE Business School has a great tradition of teaching in field of Management:
- The faculty of ISCTE Business School have authored more than 100 books in different management disciplines, many of which are now required reading at other Portuguese universities;
- There is a close working relationship between students and faculty;
- Students benefit from weekly contact hours, continual email contact and a sustained relationship with alumni throughout their professional lives.
Professional opportunities for the graduates.
Professional opportunities are arranged around the following areas:
i) Operations (i.e. industry and services), logistics and supply chain management (SCM), which consolidates the 1rst degree in Industrial & Logistics Management (ISCTE-IUL), leverages the potential of candidates with a general management degree or positions into the business context a candidate from a natural sciences background; thus, the resulting graduates are competent to occupy job positions in these areas.
ii) Innovation and technology, either by participating in, or leading teams, or by defining strategies for the employers, or even by designing applications to gather funding (e.g. H2020). Becoming a much more realistic and informed (intra/)entrepreneur is also an expected outcome for the candidates.
Moreover, consultancy jobs have been common among our graduates despite, they are also prepared to develop themselves as professional entrepreneurs. In consultancy, our graduates have been assuming important job positions in the IS/IT domain and also, as business analysts.
The Careers Service of ISCTE-IUL shows evidence that the MMST graduates are fully employed. A few students, even, start acting as professionals before finishing the 1rst year of the programme.
In addition to the local market, our graduates work all around the world.
Fully committed to help our students to succeed by developing management knowledge and practice that prepares future managers to lead organisations towards a positive impact on society, in a global world.
