"In my opinion, the experience of studying at ISCTE Business School is highly valuable as both multicultural understanding and international management skills are becoming increasingly important to employers.
IBS’s Master Program in Human Resources Management balances theory and practical relevance perfectly, and promotes team work and "out-of the-box” thinking at the same time. Given the highly qualified and committed professors, as well as the regular knowledge exchange with business professionals, I feel best prepared for the challenges of today’s international business world.
However, what I value most is the Business School’s focus on the personal development of their students. Beyond an international and highly dynamic learning environment, IBS provides both individual coaching and career management workshops, thus I am not only able to make progress as a professional but also to grow as a person."

"I have been studying at ISCTE Business School for 6 months. I feel that I have really gained a lot during this period of time. Six months ago HRM was a totally new field for me. I still remember our first class in Advanced Human Resources Management Systems. This course was very challenging because it involved a lot of group work. For example, every weekend we had to complete about 60-80 pages of group work. The individual thesis was also challenging considering I felt difficulty in maintaining the pace in this course. I needed time to adapt to the environment in Lisbon and become familiar with the new study model here....But luckily, I adapted to it quickly and I gradually found it easier for me to understand the lectures, become more familiar with human resources management and understand the connections among different courses. From my experience, I would suggest to others to not be afraid of changes and new things. I would also highlight how being optimistic and trying to adapt to new situations quickly is just a matter of time. Don't be afraid of your oral English, just speak if you want, and try to take part in the group work and activities. Especially for us who study HRM, knowing how to communicate with people is very important."

MSc in Human Resources Management.
“ISCTE Business School has an amazing culture of leadership and innovation, preparing each student to be the very best they can be and to lead in a global marketplace. Mastery and excellence are values highly encouraged and rewarded by the school. From the very beginning of the Master’s programme, we are actively inspired to think critically and creatively, to learn proactively and to embrace diversity. Towards asuccessful and fulfilling life, I believe this is a unique and worthy academic experience.”
