Miguel Queiró Pedroso de Lima, Senior Official at Bank of Portugal

3719.jpg I chose the FEP Master in Economic as my 2nd cycle programme because it fulfills four fundamental conditions: 1. It must be taught at a leading Portuguese university; 2. It must provide a profounder knowledge of both microeconomics and macroeconomics; 3. It must have a first class faculty; and 4. It must have a high employability factor on completion of the programme (in relation to a wide range of opportunities).

Filipa Mota, Project manager in Sonae

3720.jpg I chose the FEP Masters in Economics, in order to deepen my knowledge of economics, because of the excellence of the education provided and because of FEP’s prestige. The flexibility of the study plan enabled me to complement my existing knowledge in the areas of interest to me and to reconcile my academic education with my course internship at Sonae, which was a major advantage in terms of my integration in the job market. My Masters in Economics has not only provided me with a solid training in economics but has enabled me to move on to 3rd cycle studies.
