Students can also carry out part of their studies in foreign universities through the various exchange agreements with ISEG.
Candidates for the school's doctorates can apply for various grants, namely FCT grants (awarded by FCT or ISEG research centers) and, in some cases, ULisboa grants. The criteria, rules and regulations for applying for scholarships are detailed on our website.
In some cases, PhD students can enroll in projects hosted by research centers or be supported by them. For more information, contact the doctoral coordinator.
The Doctoral Program in Management is particularly interesting for those who wish to carry out advanced research in management in public or private institutions and intend to pursue a teaching career in higher education.
The doctoral student must register his thesis project during the 2nd year of the Doctoral Program, summarizing the research topic and the name of the expected supervisor. The student must have obtained at least 40 credits in curricular units to register their thesis project. The thesis project must be submitted for defense by the end of the 2nd Year and be defended by the beginning of the 3rd Year. The thesis project is a crucial part of the research work.

Upon receipt of the thesis project, the Program Coordinator will appoint an examination panel that will evaluate the project and its respective presentation and defense. Having evaluated the project, the examination panel issues its opinion on the thesis and may suggest amendments and a possible resubmission of the project, or even recommend its interruption. In addition, the doctoral student must also make a presentation on the current state of his research. This communication will take place during the second year of the programme, during one of the seminars organized by the Department of Management.
