University of Porto stays in the top 50 in the world

In the Financial Times rankings, it's not just Portuguese schools located in Lisbon: the University of Porto (specifically, the Faculty of Economics and Porto Business School) are also worthy of mention. In customized programs, the University of Porto appears in 47th position this year, down one place from last year's ranking. However, the school points out that it "achieved the best ranking among all business schools nationwide in the 'growth' indicator (66th)".

In terms of open programs, this higher education institution has slipped to 44th place, which means it has dropped two places compared to the last edition of this ranking.

Even so, the school points out that, in this category, it has established itself as the best Portuguese business school in the ranking in several key indicators, "namely in 'teaching methods and materials' (39th), in 'quality of teaching staff' (40th), in 'percentage of female participation' (47th), in terms of 'partner schools' (8th) and in 'general satisfaction' with an outstanding score of 9.26 out of 10".

Despite worsening in both tables, the school remains in the world's top 50. The dean of Porto Business School, José Esteves, stresses that this is "testimony to our commitment to excellence". He adds: "Porto Business School's open and custom programs share a common denominator: a focus on essential skills for today's leaders. We are proud of our innovative teaching methods, our faculty of recognized quality and the satisfaction of our students."

Worldwide, in customized programs, Insead (in France and Singapore) won the gold medal this year, followed by Iese Business School (in Spain, Germany, Brazil and the United States) and the International Institute for Management Development (in Switzerland and Singapore).

As for the open programs, the top of the podium is occupied by HEC Paris (in France and Qatar), followed by Iese Business School, the Spanish Esade Business School - which will be led from September by the Portuguese Daniel Traça, ex-dean of Nova SBE - and the British London Business School.
