Mission & Vision

ISEG is one of the best schools of economics and management in Portugal, with a strong international reputation, recognised for the quality of its graduates, its research, and the impact of its activities on the community.

ISEG’s mission is to create, share and enhance the socio-economic value of knowledge and culture in the fields of Economics, Finance and Business, through an approach based on plurality, the guarantee of freedom of intellectual and scientific expression, and respect for ethical principles and social responsibility.


The ISEG Manifesto

You could be a student or a member of faculty, from Portugal or anywhere in the world … north or south. You could be an intern or an executive … from Economics or Management. You always need a new vision …. to create, to evolve, to exchange ideas. You also need freedom…. to take chances, to innovate, to be unique.

Now is your chance to take your learning experience even further. With more autonomy, more openness, more pluralism. The next level of Economics and Management belongs to those who see beyond the ordinary. If you have a vision, this is the right place to be.

ISEG. Open minds. Grab the future.
