With over one hundred years of history, ISEG was the first school of economics and management founded in Portugal. The school is part of the University of Lisbon, the largest Portuguese university.
In 1759 - The School of Economics and Management (Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão) is founded in Lisbon as the Class of Commerce.
ISEG is able to offer 7 undergraduate degree programmes, 17 masters programmes, 8 doctoral programmes, as well as over 30 executive training programs.
Over a dozen of those programs (spread across all levels of study) are fully available in English.
Scientific research is, along with undergraduate and post-graduate education, and other services to the community, one of the fundamental functions of any university. For this reason, scientific research plays an integral part in the life of ISEG and promoting research is one of the main concerns of the Scientific Council.
