"I find this programme at the University of Porto very appealing: there are three compulsory courses and one optional course per semester. I can choose master courses from other programmes not only from within the School of Economics and Management but also from the other 13 Schools in the university. During the second year of the master degree, the students can choose to write a thesis or if do an internship and write a report related with a topic of the internship. Since I would like to focus more on my professional path, the internship in my second year of the master in economics will fit my plans." Tereza Krátká, Master in Economics Student
“Applying to the Master in Economics at FEP is, without a doubt, an excellent choice! This Master programme is distinct from all others for the course flexibility and guidance – by way of individual tutoring – it offers students. The inherent logic is clear: each student has distinct characteristics, therefore, the best way to harness the talent of each is to adapt the course plan accordingly. It is an ambitious goal, but an attainable one, thanks to the excellence and dedication of the teaching staff.” Mariana Oliveira, Statistician, Banco de Portugal
