The ISEG MBA is a unique learning experience for leaders of the future – for leaders with a purpose and a vision who have a global and holistic perspective. It teaches you not only the core principles of management, but also those of technology, innovation, design, ethics, and sustainability.
In pursuit of this objective, we’ve expanded the traditional “Core” of the MBA into five "STRATEGIC STREAMS" and designed LEADERSHIP & PERSONAL JOURNEY, which enables you to develop a vision for both your personal and professional and personal future. We also offer IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES, in conjunction with a network of outstanding PARTNERS and remarkable PEOPLE.

One of the competitive advantages of the ISEG MBA is the scientific and professional excellence of our Professors in the fields that form the “Core” or fundamental areas of any MBA.
From Finance and Economics, to Strategy and Marketing, Operations and People, the ISEG MBA offers an in-depth understanding of the key strategic and business challenges that organisations face.


The Leadership and Personal Development process of the ISEG MBA is an innovative and immersive experience of self-development, which helps you design your unique signature as a leader, in order to impact busines, people and society.
The Leadership Journey was designed to transform the way you lead in today’s dynamic and complex business environment, providing practical tools on emotional intelligence, influence and communication strategies, negotiation, building strong teams and managing change. You will benefit from a highly experiential learning practice with a wide variety of improvised scenarios, interactive exercises, and simulations.
In addition, you will have the opportunity to assess your existing leadership skill set and chart a Personal Development Plan. Individual Coaching sessions will enable you to explore your strengths and areas for development, fine-tune your personal and professional goals, prepare future roles and responsibilities, and identify future career options.
In coordination with our Career Center, we will optimize your career strategy and prepare tailored career development sessions to better fit the market.”

We strongly believe that the leaders of a complex and unpredictable future will need to master multiple domains and be equipped with a new set of skills, in order make a difference and have an impact in the world.
The five Strategic Streams and outstanding Global Partners of the ISEG MBA provide you the opportunity to explore and expand your level of knowledge in five major streams, which will enable you to identify strategic opportunities, expand your network, and master your analytical, creative and decision-making skills. These Streams are:


The World Economic Forum (WEF) is a strategic partner of the ISEG MBA for teaching you to explore and act on the most important driving forces that are currently affecting and shaping economies, industries and organisations world-wide.

How do you continuously adapt your vision and strategy within a fast-evolving global context? Leaders require new tools to make better strategic decisions in an increasingly complex and uncertain environment. The World Economic Forum developed Strategic Intelligence to help you understand the global forces at play and make more informed decisions. (WEF)

In this Stream we have also established a partnership with the Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies (CIFS), an independent and non-profit global advisory think tank, with the aim of facilitating the decision-making process in your organisation through scenario planning, megatrend analysis, risk management, innovation and strategy.


We’ve designed a unique Strategic Stream on Entrepreneurship and Innovation, in partnership with Startup Lisboa and the University of San Francisco.
This Stream provides you with the opportunity to explore two of the most dynamic and fast-growing entrepreneurial ecosystems in the world, through immersive and hands-on experience in both Lisbon and San Francisco.

More than 30% of participants in the ISEG MBA create and launch start-ups or new business ventures either during or after the program.

You will also gain knowledge from some of the most cutting edge Incubators, Accelerators, Fab Labs and Investors, and will be put in contact with global digital Disruptors, Big Corps, Unicorns and fast growing Startups.


Our Partner in this Strategic Stream is Técnico Lisboa - the largest School of Engineering in Portugal and one of the best in Europe.
You will have the opportunity to understand emergent and exponential technologies, its global challenges and opportunities, combined with a comprehensive overview of major innovations, and the implications they have on industries, society, and our future.
In the Mastering Data Science Lab you will have the chance to get to know the most significant application of Artificial Intelligence, and how this has become an essential tool for business development in a variety of areas, such as finance, healthcare, retail, communications, transportation and logistics.
You’ll understand how data analysis can be used to support and develop your business needs, using concrete use cases combined with an introduction to the key concepts of various technologies.
We want to go beyond Artificial Intelligence and offer you the opportunity to explore how accelerating and converging technologies are disrupting the future of entire industries and organisations. You will have a unique overview of how technologies like Augmented & Virtual Reality, Robotics, IoT & 5G, Biotech & Neuroscience, Nanotech & New Materials are shaping our global future.
This Steam also offers a unique overview of how technologies such as Augmented & Virtual Reality, Robotics, IoT & 5G, Biotech & Neuroscience, Nanotech & New Materials are shaping our global future.


Design and Agility are becoming part of the DNA of an increasing number of leading and innovative organizations.
In this Stream you learn to understand the value of Design for Business Strategy, Differentiation and Competitive Advantage, and also explore the use of Design Thinking and Strategic Design tools to progress from consumer and market insight to designing actionable solutions.
You will be challenged to discover how can you encourage strategic and operational agility in your organisation and will participate in immersion sessions and masterclasses to learn and analyse how certain global companies based in Lisbon are fast becoming agile and digital.


This Stream provides you with knowledge about the main sustainability issues in the international and national agenda and explains how these impact the day-to-day business of an organisation. It further explains how the Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals are related with both financial risks and new business models. As such, will also analyze the growing relevance of the extra-financial information - so called Environmental Social and Governance factors - for companies, for investors, stock markets and rating agencies. A focus will be given to the increasing relevance of sustainable finance around the globe.
Ethical and Governances issues are also analysed - both from a theoretical and a practical perspective, since many Corporate Governance recommendation codes of several European countries already reefer to the importance of sustainability and ethics as part of good management practices. The existing hard and soft law on these issues will also be discussed. During this course, several guests will be invited to share their views and experiences on the sustainability field.


The ISEG MBA includes an immersive programme at Silicon Valley, in partnership with the University of San Francisco, which will provide you with access to the most dynamic entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem in the world.
We combine this program in San Francisco with a further immersive experience in the Lisbon Entrepreneurial Ecosystem, in partnership with Startup Lisboa and the Creative Hub of Beato.
The MBA programme also includes a weekend at the Portuguese Air Force Academy, where the focus is on leadership, team building and improvisation activities. This is the moment when you test your own limits as you develop your leadership, organisational and time management skills, as well as your sense of cooperation.
